Quotations

(I have a terrible clutter problem when it comes to quotes. I tack them up everywhere, in my home, on my blog. A dangerous addiction, I tell you!
So I decided to gather my favorites together here and make some space on my refrigerator and homepage. Enjoy!)

One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying. ~Joan of Arc

Those who perceive in themselves... the artistic vocation as poet, writer, sculptor, painter, musician, and actor feel at the same time an obligation not to waste this talent but to develop it, in order to put it to service of their neighbour and the humanity as a whole. --Pope John Paul II

It's the job that's never started that takes the longest to finish. -J. R. R. Tolkien

Inspiration usually comes during work rather than before it. -Madeleine L'Engle

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark. -Michelangelo

If I ever do get to be a fine writer, it will not be because I am a fine writer but because God has given me credit for a few of the things He kindly wrote for me. …
Right at present this does not seem to be His policy. I can’t write a thing. But I’ll continue to try—that is the point. And at every dry point I will be reminded Who is doing the work when it is done & Who is not doing it at that moment. ~Flannery O'Connor (at 21)
