Stephen King
“Reading at meals is considered rude in polite society, but if you expect to succeed as a writer, rudeness should be the second-to-least of your concerns. The least of all should be polite society and what it expects.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Albert Einstein
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
Albert Einstein

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Make your own Bible. Select and collect all the words and sentences that in all your readings have been to you like the blast of a trumpet.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
