But a real writer is always thinking like a writer, and the stories are still forming and shaping in the writer's head.

“For some the truth is too painful to hear. For others, it’s a healing balm. This is why I write - to heal.”

“A writer must get beyond the thrill of a byline, plunge deeper than the words themselves, and dive head-on into a bottomless pit where all the good stories are swimming around waiting to be rescued from the soul.”

“All good writers write [terrible first drafts.] This is how they end up with good second drafts and terrific third drafts. . . I know some very great writers, writers you love who write beautifully and have made a great deal of money, and not one of them sits down routinely feeling wildly enthusiastic and confident. Not one of them writes elegant first drafts. All right, one of them does, but we do not like her very much. We do not think that she has a rich inner life or that God likes her or can even stand her. (Although when I mentioned this to my priest friend Tom, he said you can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“When we elevate others, we elevate ourselves. Let’s all go be “elevators.”

Kathleen M. Rodgers, Johnnie Come Lately

“Reagan was president. He had the authority to end the infighting, set policy, and advance American interests in the Middle East. Before him was a clear choice; Shultz arguing for engagement, Weinberger for disengagement. Engagement would likely have involved the use of military force; disengagement offered the comfort of a casualty-free retreat. In the post-Vietnam era, for this president, at this time, disengagement made more sense. He still talked a good game, but when it was time for a decision, he punted. “In the weeks immediately after the bombing,” he later wrote, “I believed the last thing we should do was turn tail and leave.”58 And yet, fearful of another Vietnam, he waited a few months and then pulled the remaining marines out of Beirut. According to McFarlane many years later, his decision opened the door to the terrorism that has plagued the region and the world ever since. “I am convinced we could have stopped it then, just as it was starting, but Reagan chose not to.”
