Jesus Outside the Lines by Scott Sauls
"I've read a lot of Christian Living books over the years, but it's been awhile since I've read one. I bought Scott Saul's book on a lark just because I am a distant acquaintance of his, and I like to support up-and-coming authors. I expected it to..." Read more of this review »

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Stephen King
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

Madeleine L'Engle
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

E.L. Doctorow
“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.”
E.L. Doctorow

Maya Angelou
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
