Wise Words

A gathering of wisdom to spark our enjoyment and creativity! These words of wisdom come to us from Sarajane Giere, a cherished KWD reader and the award-winning author of “My Pilot,” a memoir:

“Aim at heaven and you get the earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.” C.C. Lewis

“We live not by things, but by the meanings of things. It is needful to transmit the passwords from generation to generation.” Antoine de St. Exupery

“With a child’s imagination, you can own half the world.” Neil Simon

“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.” Molders

“When friends failed or full palled or spirits flagged, there was my typewriter and there was my world, my oyster.” Edna Ferber

“Put your hero in a lake and every time he comes up for air, take your foot and shove him under again—wait until the end when you rescue him, unless it’s a tragedy, in which case, you hold him under for good.” Sinclair Lewis

“What takes place between reader and writer is ‘the exchange of dreams.’ A writer writes memories, dreams and lies. It makes no difference if it’s true—what matters most are the emotions.” Lois Lowry

“…characters, once conceived, have a willful habit of jumping the reservation and must be herded back into the boundaries of the story.” A.B. Guthrie

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” Marcel Proust

“Style is the self, escaping into the pen.” E.B. White

Thank you, Sarajane! And now, inspired and emboldened, let’s all write on!

    Love these submissions from Sarajane – her book is fabulous – have read it twice. All these quotes are thought-provoking and worthy of pondering – and self-examination in some. Thanks so much for including me. xo Barbara Rabke
