My Collection of Quotes.

"If you find yourself
asking yourself,
(and your friends),
'Am I really a writer?
Am I really an artist?'
Chances are,
you are.
The counterfeit innovator
is wildly self-confident.
The real one is scared to death.
-Steven Pressfield (found at Frazzled & Frumpy)
"Some people come into our lives and go quickly. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in out lives for a while, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same" Flavia Weedn
A common beginning to Russian fairy tales (As quoted at the beginning of Collected Folk Tales by Alan Garer):
"Believe in fairy tales
What were the fairy tales,
they will come true"
HV Morton in The Call of England said:
"Clitheroe is half in Lancashire and half in Fairyland" (That's where I work!)
“I'm not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

By all means post your favourite quotes in the comments below ;-)


  1. Such beautiful quotes - truly inspirational! If you don't mind, I took the slight liberty of turning a couple of these into typography, a small hobby of mine; all of them can be found here ^ .^
    My personal favourites include:

    "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass: it's about learning how to dance in the rain" ~Vivian Greene(spelling of name optional)
    "One simply can't believe impossible things!"
    "Why not? I have believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." ~Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
    "Never forget what you are, for the world will not. Wear it like armour, and they can never use it against you." ~A Game of Thrones, George RR Martin

    There are also some other ones, but they're quite long and a little rambling, so I'll leave you to purouse-- proos-- poroos-- pourous-- umm, browse at your own pleasure. I think you might particularly like the Terry Pratchett ones, Blaze Across the Sky and Wing It, but that might just be me ^ .^
    (also, that was so NOT a shameless plugging attempt c:)

    1. :-D I love those quotes, especially the Vivian Greene quote!! And I love the typography you have going on!!
