Quotes by Maggie Smith  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“When life held your hand in the flames, it taught you something about the kind of burning you can endure. You survived: don’t forget that, and don’t diminish it. KEEP MOVING.”
Maggie Smith, Keep Moving: Notes on Loss, Creativity, and Change

“Ask yourself about the kind of life you want: What would you do day to day, and with whom, and where? Consider the life you have. Do one thing today, however small, to close the gap between the two.”
Maggie Smith, Keep Moving: Notes on Loss, Creativity, and Change

“We talk so much of  light, please
let me speak on behalf

of  the good dark. Let us
talk more of how dark

the beginning of a day is.

—Maggie Smith, from “How Dark the Beginning,” Poetry (February 2020)”
