Stephen King
“The scariest moment is always just before you start.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Adam Phillips
“The pleasure of kindness is that it connects us with others; but the terror of kindness is that it makes us too immediately aware of our own and other people’s vulnerabilities (vulnerabilities that we are prone to call failings when we are at our most frightened). Vulnerability—particularly the vulnerability we call desire—is our shared biological inheritance. Kindness, in other words, opens us up to the world (and worlds) of other people in ways that we both long for and dread. How can people, from childhood onward, feel confident enough to take such risks?”
Adam Phillips, On Kindness

Mark Twain
“A body can't be too partic'lar how they talk 'bout these-yer dead people, Tom.”
Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Marilynne Robinson
“I talked once with a cabdriver who had spent years in prison. He said he had no idea that the world was something he could be interested in. And then he read a book.”
Marilynne Robinson, What are We Doing Here?

Stephen King
“you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
