Live in Balance: A to Z Challenge - I is for...

I is for Inspiration
💜 For today's post, I leave you with a few quotes
- to inspire you. Enjoy! 💜

“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
 George Bernard Shaw

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
 Winston S. Churchill

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
 John Lennon

“If you only write when inspired, you may be a fairly decent poet, but you'll never be a novelist.”
 Neil Gaiman

“Disciplined runners consistently clear their heads and focus fully on the journey ahead...because their passion and zeal for the goal supersedes the strain. The goal beckons them onward. Passion doesn't negate weariness; it just resolves to press beyond it.”
 Priscilla Shirer

“When we procrastinate, we also put a hold on happiness.”
 Charles F. Glassman

“If you don't acquire the discipline to push through a personal low point, you will miss the reward that comes with persevering.”
 Jeff Goins

“Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.”
 Lili St. Crow

“Every time I hear writers talk about ‘the muse,’ I just want to bitch-slap them. It’s a job. Do your job.”
 Nora Roberts


“Don't wait for the muse. She has a lousy work ethic. Writers just write.”
 Barbara Kingsolver
