Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent in your office or mowing the lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.
The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.
To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the inner music that words make.
If a book is well written, I always find it too short.
Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.
If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.
There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island.
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.
What people are ashamed of usually makes a good story.
—F. Scott Fitzgerald
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
