Quotable Friday (20)

Welcome to my occasional Friday series of quotations from and about books and authors. When I stumble across something that tickles my fancy, I post it here. Think of it as lazy blogging. Contributions are always welcome so if there's a quotation you think should be shared, get in touch (details on 'About Me' page).

This week I came across the Buzzfeed Post displaying 20 quotations from authors, illustrated by Lisa Congdon. They are not strictly quotations about writing, more about life, but some of them are rather lovely and this one from Jack London made me smile. I suspect anybody doing anything creative could do with this reminder sometimes:

"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club."

And because it's still sort of New Year, I'll give you a bonus one from the list too. This one is from Alfred Tennyson:

"Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, "It will be happier..."

May it happen for you!

  1. I so often don't paint or draw because I'm feeling uninspired. Need to dust off my club I think....
