“Not all writing is political or revolutionary, but the very act of giving yourself permission to write, to speak, to share the truth no matter whether the truth you understand is the truth others want to acknowledge, is brave, powerful, and important.”
Dinty W. Moore, The Mindful Writer: Noble Truths of the Writing Life

“Exercise the muscles that compassionately open the heart.

In your writing and your life.”
Dinty W. Moore, The Mindful Writer: Noble Truths of the Writing Life

“We are rushing, always thinking of the future, of our destination, focusing on what is four hours, or four hundred miles, or four years ahead, and constantly missing what is right there, just then, at the moment.”
Dinty W. Moore, The Accidental Buddhist: Mindfulness, Enlightenment, and Sitting Still, American Style
