“Life is like a Ferris wheel, going ‘round and ‘round in one direction. Some of us are lucky enough to remember each trip around.” From: Yesterday - A Novel of Reincarnation”
Samyann, Yesterday: A Novel of Reincarnation

“Remember that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!”
Vicki Corona, Tahitian Choreographies: Intermediate to Advanced Level Female Instruction

“Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.”
Neil Gaiman

“The main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence, you’re allowed to do whatever you like. (That may be a rule for life as well as for writing. But it’s definitely true for writing.) So write your story as it needs to be written. Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can. I’m not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.”
Neil Gaiman
