I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino
"Writing is an animal that lives in the soul. It must not be whipped into doing tricks. It is not a circus animal. It can be fierce, but it is not malevolent. It can be playful, but it is not without wisdom. Above all, it is wild. A wild animal has to sleep sometimes. This is a time of deep sleep for my writing."
— Pat Schneider, American poet, born June 1, 1934
