Q ~ QUOTING Book Giveaway with a Hop!

My theme for the letter Q is easy ~ a QUOTE


If you look aways down on my right sidebar, you'll see a section of quotes. I change them, every-so-often, but some I keep there. Inspiration, really...for you and for me.

~ The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath 
~ The achievement of your goal is reached the moment you commit to it. ~M.D.
~ Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined. ~ Thoreau


There are hundreds more. We could chat forever about them. Here's one a bit more appropriate for this post.


A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on you and remains a friend.  ~Author Unknown

  71. A book is a vaction from reality. You can win a sword fight without knowing how to duel, you can visit the Arctic without leaving home and have an extravagant dinner without paying a dime. And through writing, you make your dreams happen, bring out stories and ideas from inside yourself that you can then pass along and share.

  112. ONE of my many favorite quotations from Anne of Green Gables
    "Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?"
    - Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

  122. Favorite quote:
    "I love books, by the way, way more than movies. Movies tell you what to think. A good book lets you choose a few thoughts for yourself. Movies show you the pink house. A good book tells you there's a pink house and lets you paint some of the finishing touches, maybe choose the roof style,park your own car out front. My imagination has always topped anything a movie could come up with. Case in point, those darned Harry Potter movies. That was so not what that part-Veela-chick, Fleur Delacour, looked like." -Karen Moning, Darkfever

    Now for some writing quotes? Well, as a writer and lover of quotes, I'm seriously inspired by Pat Mora. In particular a letter she wrote entitled "To Gabriela, A Young Writer." Here's a few gems:

    "Wretches can write well while saints produce pedestrain passages."

    "I write because I'm curious. I'm curious about me. Writing is a way of finding out how I feel about anything and everything."

    "Do you know the quotation that says learning to write is like learning to ice skate? You must be willing to make a fool of yourself."

    "Writers write. They don't just talk about writing just as dancers don't just talk about dancing. They do it because they love it and because they want to get better and better. They practice and practice to loosen up just as you practiced and practiced when you were learning to talk. And because you practiced, you don't talk the way you did when you were three."

    "I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it."

    "I like a man who's good, but not too good - for the good die young, and I hate a dead one."

    "I'm no model lady. A model's just an imitation of the real thing."

    Okay, okay, okay. I better stop before I get carried away.... Oh wait. To late. ;-) But her quotes are AWESOME!

  156. I think quotes are so fun! My favorite... hmmm. Last summer, I was volunteering at a prom for senior citizens and was talking to this old lady. Everyone was going to get their pictures taken and she said:

    "You wanna know something, girly? You see how I'm sitting here all by myself while everyone else is out getting their picture taken? Yeah, that's because my other half isn't here. And I don't need a picture without him. That's where you gotta make sure you pick the right guy. A man you're completely compatible with. I've been with my hubby 62 years. && when I told him I wanted to come down here tonight, he told me to go by myself. Make sure you pick the boy who will always be there for you even when you're an old lady like me. Don't fall for the cutie who will sit up in the room watching baseball rather than go dancing with you."

    I don't know her name. && I'll likely never see her again. But, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her words. They've inspired me so much and I'd definitely consider it my favorite thing, and the most important thing, anyone has ever said/quoted to me. :)

I don't have a quote, but I love to read and love books because I'm a busy mom of three and getting lost in a book helps me to destress and let's me leave reality behind for a little bit and live extroadinary lives through characters. It's given me something that's mine and mine alone and on the day's when all I hear are mommy and honey, I find myself putting the kids to bed early, shutting the t.v. off and unwinding with a book
