Quote of the Day: JRR Tolkien

If you have been following this blog for any length of time, you know that Tolkien is my gold standard for writing. This poem, riddle from the Lord of the Rings has my favorite line of all time.

“Not all who wander are lost” I feel this describes my life and my writing life. Although I get lost on both plenty. I love the journey. Take time to really see and enjoy your own journey of life. Cheers, james

Writing Inspiration and Quotes

I guess you guys have noticed that I have started to post a few quotes here and there. I decided to share some of my favorite quotes. I figure if I need a pick me up of inspiration then maybe you do too.

The quotes I have chosen so far include Neil Gaiman, love his books. Les Brown, he has some amazing advice on life, and a poet Rumi. Rumi was first introduced to me a couple of months ago. He was an Indian poet and his poetry is sparse yet powerful. And it maybe because it is sparse that it has power. I will let you decide.

I have decided to post the “Quote of the Day” on Mondays and Thursdays. And hopefully I will find new quotes and new people to add to the list.

I hope you enjoy and if there is somebody you find inspiring. Leave their name and quote in the comments. Cheers, james
