Words and passages that caught my eye:
Leap and the net will appear.
John Burroughs, An American Naturalist
How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.
Henry David Thoreau
via Alex Beauchamp of Hygge House, Time For A Change
I found that every single successful person I’ve ever spoken to had a turning point and the turning point was where they made a clear, specific, unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore. Some people make that decision at 15 and some people make it at 50 and most never make it at all.
Brian Tracy on the power of decision
There is a specific feeling to writing when it feels good, like sliding into a very familiar sweater. I like to try and inhabit an old memory again. In that way, it works like an impossible time machine.
Lena Dunham on the creative process in Be Your Own Muse by sarah sophie flicker
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
