"Everyone thinks writers must know more about the inside of the human head, but that is wrong. They know less, that's why they write. Trying to find out what everyone else takes for granted."  Margaret Atwood

"Don't worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive."  Howard Thurman

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
