Quote Day!

Y’all, I love being a writer! I really do. Sometimes it can be overwhelming or discouraging though. One of the ways I enjoy inspiring myself and getting back on track is by reading quotes. Therefore, I’ve decided to share some quotes with you today. Enjoy! 🙂 


If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do things worth writing. 
-Benjamin Franklin
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. 
-Michael Jordan
When I graduated from high school I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library 3 days a week for 10 years. 
-Ray Bradbury
If you reread a piece and decide that nothing works until the second page, why not simply start it there? The delete key is your friend. 
-Adair Lara

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. 
-Wayne Gretzky
You can have your book or you can have your excuses. You can’t have both. 
-Amanda Patterson
The search for the word gets no easier but nobody else is going to write your novel for you. 
-Neil Gaiman
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. 
-Chinese Proverb

    I love these! I also love the quote “We mustn't claim to stand for our King but then deny Him by living a fleshly existence. Our King's Mighties don't shy away from the blazing searchlight of God's Word, but rather, willingly expose their souls and cry, 'Dear King, if there be anything that stands between You and me, if there be anything that shrouds Your glory, if there be anything that will weaken my sword in battle, purge it, slay it, utterly destroy it!”
    -Eric Ludy, “Wrestling Prayer”

    Quotes are fun and a great place to get a boost of inspiration. The quote that's in my mind today is Rich Mullins'. I like a lot of his because he had a really unique and very blunt way of looking at Christianity. “Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours.”
