The ablest writer is only a gardener first, and then a cook: his tasks are, carefully to select and cultivate his strongest and most nutritive thoughts; and when they are ripe, to dress them, wholesomely, and yet so that they may have a relish. – Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare
My inner foodie loves this quote, so I’ve got nothing.
“My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel–it is, before all, to make you see.”
And in case that failed, I included a picture for all you ‘visual’ learners. You’re welcome.
“Don’t say it was delightful; make us say delightful when we’ve read the description. You see, all those words (horrifying, wonderful, hideous, exquisite) are only like saying to your readers Please will you do the job for me.”
I am absolutely fantastically horrified that it has been implied that I’ve tried too devastatingly hard to make you over-indulge in the exquisitely delicious enriched prose I’ve been trying so very desperately to bring into your… wait. I’m doing it again, aren’t I?
“I put my heart & soul into my work, & have lost my mind in the process.”
- Vincent van Gogh
I hate to break it to you, but that’s not the only thing you lost buddy.
“There is nothing better on a cold wintry day than a properly made pot pie.” – Craig Claiborne
Really? This is so disappointing.
“I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.”
- Shana Abé
Wait… Have you been smoking the weed, err… the completely harmless, (just ask Miley) non-illegal (in California) wonder drug known as Salvia?
“There was this about vampires : they could never look scruffy. Instead, they were… what was the word… deshabille. It meant untidy, but with bags and bags of style.”
- Terry Pratchett
Umm… vampires are so last season. Everyone in New York knows zombies are the new black.
However, this quote has just reminded me that I CAN’T wait to read Sherri Browning Erwin’s book ‘Jane Slayre.’ In fact, I think I shall purchase it for my ereader right this very bloodsucking moment. You should grab a copy too and then we can discuss it coffee-talk style. Since we’re such good friends, I’ll even give you a link to her site. Now click, click read people!
