“Diggy wished he could cut sentences out of his head the way he could cut them out of a book, then cut them in half and word by word and letter by letter until they were bits of nothing that drifted from the scissors' edges, gravity not even interested enough to pull them down.”
Rebecca Petruck, Steering Toward Normal

“My emotional state then was cramped and confined, like a room with tightly sealed windows and doors: although love's footsteps could be heard outside the room, I felt they were steps heading somewhere else--until one day when the steps came to a halt and the bell rang.”
Yu Hua

“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
Frederick Buechner, Now and Then: A Memoir of Vocation

“A direct relationship exists between the caliber of the writing you read and the caliber of the writing you make.”
Robert Benson, Dancing on the Head of a Pen: The Practice of a Writing Life

“Lots of folks know stuff we don't, but that doesn't make 'em smart.”
Krista Van Dolzer, The Sound of Life and Everything

“...the heart is a muscle like any other. Tearing it down is the only way to make it stronger.”
Sarah Skilton, Bruised
