Microsoft Word is good for editing, and I occasionally use Google Docs to write since I can sync it to my phone and write on the go.(less)

“Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness.”
Ayn Rand

Garth Stein
“The human language, as precise as it is with its thousands of words, can still be so wonderfully vague.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

Lev Grossman
“[F]or just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there's nothing else. It's here, and you'd better decide to enjoy it or you're going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever.”
Lev Grossman, The Magicians

Julie Klam
“A very wise dog woman once told me that dogs find owners, not the other way around. They pick you and they choose to stay with you. In that way, they are also giving you the end of their life. The deeper the bond, the harder it is to say good-bye. I know I’d rather have any amount of time with a dog I love and suffer the mourning than not have the time at all.”
Julie Klam, You Had Me at Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secrets of Happiness

Garth Stein
“That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain
