Seeking Inspiration?

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing." -Ben Franklin

"I can shake off everything as I write. My sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn." - Anne Frank

"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it." - Jack London

(And to add a little humor)

"I won't say ours was a tough school, but we had our own coroner. We used to write essays like: What I'm going to be if I grow up." -Lenny Bruce
