I should clarify that it’s my favorite non-biblical quotes. Most of them are about writing and are hung up at my desk.
“I’d rather be caught holding up a bank than stealing so much as a two-word phrase from another writer.”
“Decisions become easier when your will to please God outweighs your will to please the world.”
“There is nothing more important than the words you are writing now.”
“Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money.”
“Writing and travel are the best things, the only things that always work, that always make me feel connected and whole.”
-George Crane, Beyond the House of the False Lama
My boss, who is both general manager AND editor in chief at my paper called himself a reporter Wednesday.
It hit me. He’s still a reporter. He may have to deal with budgets and cost analysis and decision making, but he’s still a reporter.
That never leaves.
I hope I still feel that way when I’m older.
“An author is a fool who, not content with boring those he lives with, insists on boring future generations.”
“The world suffers nothing from Christians but hates them because the reject its pleasures.”
-St. Justin Martyr
That one is actually in my Catholic Daily Planner this week, and I love it. It may go up on the wall at my desk.
Have a great weekend!
