QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Sunday, August 25, 2019

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi  Everyone and a Happy Sunday.  Today's quotes may not apply to everyone
in the same way; still I find them special with their individual messages.  As
some of you, my friends, know I have been hoping to at least, write...complete
...publish 4 books I have stuck in my head:) I seriously take to heart the quotes
I post here on ActiveRain.  I believe in them and the best ones I transfer to my
subconscious  -- 'I will do it...I will do it...I will leave Planet Earth with my
mission completed.'  As destiny would have it, I came across a number of great
quotes that speak to my writer's soul and I thought of you.. Perhaps some of
you also need energy, motivation, inspiration to write books 'stuck in your
head,'  ...maybe to write content on your website,  enrich your marketing plan
...share a post.  Anyway, it's Sunday and I thought I would like to share with
you.    Have a great day!        Have to admit I do have one eye on the 2019 
FedEx Cup and hope to keep this post cohesive:)                                                                                                                                                                                          ~Jane
                                                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 


(This first quote is one that one of my sons recalls painted on an Arizona
outpost wall.  Although we tried to research the exact wording and author,
we were unable to do so.  If any of you know this author, I would love if you
let the rest of us know. In the meantime this is Ron's memory which he tucked
away in his mind. ) ------
      "This is primarily not the place where we have to be,
            it's the place where we are -
         It's not a prison, but our home -
         It's a road we must walk and the walking of it is called Life.
         Because we will walk it only one time, how important it is 
         That we walk it with a purpose that we can call it our very own."
                                                                                                       (unknown)  
                                                       ~~~~   ~~~~  ~~~~
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
                                                                                                  ~Maya Angelou

"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality
of his mind, is written large in his works."                              ~Virginia Woolf

"Start writing, no matter what.  The water does not flow until the faucet
is turned on."                                                                             ~Louis L'Amour

"You don't start out writing good stuff.  You start out writing crap and
thinking it's good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it.
That's why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence."
                                                                                                    ~Octavia E. Butler

"The first draft is just you telling yourself the story."
                                                                                                 ~Terry Pratchett

"Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day.  The good writers
are the ones who see five or six of them.  Most people don't see any."
                                                                                                              ~Orson Scott

"A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit."
                                                                                                     ~Richard Bach

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

"When your story is ready for rewrite, cut it to the bone.  Get rid of every
ounce of excess fat.  This is going to hurt; revising a story down to the bare
essentials is always a little like murdering children, but it must be done."
                                                                                                      ~Stephen King

"All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath."
                                                                                                 ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

"There is no real ending.  It's just the place where you stop the story."
                                                                                                        ~Frank Herbert

Morning Jane.

The last one hit home with me.  My story will end when I take my last breath, NOT.  I have three kids, 13 grand-kids and 8 great ones.   The story never ends.  BTW, two more are in the oven.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. , somewhere along the way we lost contact.  When I realized it a few weeks ago, I did write you and also called you.  I will try to reach you again and so happy to know we are now in contact again.  Have a wonderful week, Endre.

Congratulations, James Dray , and your story.  No it doesn't end with us and yes, we play a major role on this road we call 'life.'  From what I read in your posts and comments, you are and have been a loving, positive, and exemplary model for those that follow you.  I am quite sure they all know the meaning of the word 'smile.'

And good day to you, Mr. Chicago Wayne Martin!    I also liked the quote you 
chose; in fact, I had never heard it described that way before.  Have a great week in my favorite metropolis, Chicago!!  I do miss it even though I love living in metro Orlando.

Happy Monday to you, Brian England !!  Yes I really enjoyed watching  top golfers  play in the FedEx this past few days.  Rory was not my guy, but I was very happy for him on his win...lots of pressure, huh?!?

Hi  Will Hamm !  Yes, I love to watch golf - very relaxing as a spectator; however, doesn't take long to recognize that for the player, it is a highly mental and stressful sport.  Unlike a 'team' sport, you win or lose all by your lone self :)  Have a great week, hoots the night owl:)
