Quotation Saturday~ Happy New Year

Luke 4: 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
[19] To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.


Happy New Year Everyone!

As we segue into the new year and embark on the craft of writing, I had to post my quotes! Sometimes hanging these above the desk or on a door or even in the bathroom by the mirror will inspire you, encourage you and keep you motivated, to continue on your writing venture no matter how impossible things seem!!!!

I wish you all a prosperous New Year and a wonderful productive writing journey!

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory.
~ Arthur GoldenMemoirs of a Geisha
Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

Live neither in the past nor in the future, but let each day's work absorb your entire energies, and satisfy your widest ambition.
~Sir William Osler (1849 - 1919), to his students

A preoccupation with the future not only prevents us from seeing the present as it is but often prompts us to rearrange the past.
~Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983), The Passionate State of Mind, 1954

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
~Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992)

That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)



May the journey you embark on this year be one full of blessings! ~joni
