Two Quotes of my Week

I came upon the following quotes in The Artist's Way. They kind of say it all, don't you think?

"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do to have what you want." Margaret Young

And then there is this:

"We are traditionally rather proud of ourselves for having slipped creative work in there between the domestic chores and obligations. I'm not sure we deserve such big A-pluses for that." Toni Morrison

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Great quotes! My friend is lending me a copy of The Artist's Way. I'm looking forward to reading it now.

I think you are onto something here. Some of the most enjoyable writing I have ever done, I wrote a mini-novel (200+ pages) for my oldest Grandsone. I wrote it in a leather bound journal by hand. Not one letter stroke on a computer or typewriter..

Wish I could be Toni Morrison. I do feel like creativity comes in second a lot of the time.
