What's most important is not to await inspiration but plod ahead without it, putting word after word that makes nominal sense. You sit and do that, inspired or not. It's like that by-now cliched line from, I think, Woody Allen: most of life is just showing up. Then, when inspiration does show up, it's like climbing into a AAA fuel dragster, or launching off the Cornice at Mammoth on skis. Wow.(less)

Gettysburg Address

For me, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is, pound-for-pound, the richest, most meaningful and most beautiful piece of short writing in our language. That's why I chose a phrase from it -- "full measure" -- as the title of my new novel.
There's lots of competition in this "short writing" division. You've got geniuses from Shakespeare to David Foster Wallace creating scenes and soliloquies. You've got Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by T. Jefferson Parker  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“There's a stream that trickles through all of us. It's always there. It's evil and we know this, so we force it to mix with the larger river inside us. We let it be consumed by the greater flow of good. But when the good in the river runs dry and there isn't enough of it to dilute the stream, then the stream flows faster and harder, uncontrolled, and it finally floods one life, then another, then another. And it's always the innocent who are easiest to pull down. It's always the innocent who are standing there on the banks and looking in, curious and trusting and sometimes, maybe, even a little brave.”
T. Jefferson Parker, Where Serpents Lie

“No man has seen God. No man has seen Lucifer. No man that I've ever talked to! It's just a useful way of looking at the world. And seeing into it. ”
T. Jefferson Parker, Iron River

“I miss being young. I miss being young and strong. Young and fast. Young and in love. Nothing like it. Old love is good, too. But you get the feeling that the world mainly just wants you out of the way.”
T. Jefferson Parker, California Girl
