Favourite Quotes..

Favourite Quotes!


Since writing my first novel I discovered a renewed love of quotes, I’ve found them inspiring and a great motivation on those days when my mind has felt blocked. There are so many wonderful quotes out there that my computer desktop has become almost covered in post-it notes full of my favourite ones. I will update this page every couple of weeks with a quote on a Monday morning, for anyone who likes to read them like I do.

Here are a few of my favourites to get started…

Toni Morrison said “If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

E. L. Doctorow said “Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”

Anne Rice said “To write something, you have to risk making a fool of yourself.”

John Milton said “Confidence imparts a wonderful inspiration to its possessor.”

Peter F. Drucker said “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

Charles Dickens said “A loving heart is the truest wisdom.”

  1. Hi Katie,
    I too enjoy reading quotes and find them inspiring, especially when my mind doesn’t want to kick itself into gear and allow me to write as I’d like to. One of my favourite quotes is:
    “We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” –Ernest Hemingway.

    • Hi Kendra.

      Me too, they really help sometimes.
      Ernest Hemingway quote is a great one. I’m going to add it to a posit not on my laptop as soon as I get it back.
      My favourite one for today is- “Nothing happens unless first a dream,” – Carl Sandburg.

      Take care.
