In honor of Women’s History Month, I’ve gathered a cornucopia of favorite quotes to inspire and energize us all:
“Inspiration usually comes during work, not before it.”
“In the middle of the world, make one positive step. In the center of chaos, make one definitive act.
“But have the courage to write whatever your dream is for yourself.”
“Writing a novel is all about the timed release of information.”
“The universe is made of stories, not atoms.”
“I might write four lines or I might write twenty. I subtract and I add until I really hit something. You don’t always whittle down, sometimes you whittle up.”
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
“There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before.”
“Your writing is trying to tell you something. Just lend an ear.”
“If you have a skeleton in your closet, take it out and dance with it.”
“You should hear every sentence you write as if it was being read aloud or spoken.”
“I have been in Sorrow’s kitchen and licked out all the pots. Then I have stood on the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows, with a harp and a sword in my hands.”
Zora Neale Hurston
