There's a lot of good ones and it's near 'bout impossible to pick just one.  My favorites of his characters are Tell Sackett, Milo Ta... Read more of this blog post »

Robert B. Parker
“Writer's block? I've never heard of a plumber complain about plumber's block.”
Robert B. Parker

Louis L'Amour
“Up to a point a person’s life is shaped by environment, heredity, and changes in the world about them. Then there comes a time when it lies within their grasp to shape the clay of their life into the sort of thing they wish it to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune or the quirks of fate. Everyone has the power to say, "This I am today. That I shall be tomorrow.”
Louis L'Amour, The Walking Drum

Ray Bradbury
“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
