The Arthur Miller quote is speaking to me big time! Thanks, Lexa!

Dr. Theda said...

That last one we are "guilty" of.....
we have let this "Town" (which voted me as "Greatest Villain at topix / forum")and some of the residents...
we have indeed allowed them to "steal our Joy".... this is a sad fact.....
also many "fear" me and think of me as "the Boogeyman" as well.....

Emma Adams said...

Perfect quote from Arthur Miller. Thanks for sharing! You doing NaNo?

That last one was awesome. Not that all of them aren't, but it made me smile. We just have to write and let whatever comes, come, right?

The first one and the last one are speaking to me right now. To combine them, I'd have to say:

A flower doesn't let competition with the neighboring flowers prevent it from joyfully blooming.

Loni Townsend said...

That last one is my favorite!

M.R. R. said...

Love these quotes. Thanks for them.

I love the muse quote! I'd never want my muse to quit.

Birgit said...

I love quotes and the first one and the Miller quote speak volumes to me. Great to share this with us:)

Stephen Hayes said...

Great words to keep in the front of my mind.

Kim Lajevardi said...

Great motivation for November! When it gets darker and the winds start seeping in, I think we're wise to remember there's more. For me, the more comes from writing. Happy writing, Lex!

Gina Stoneheart said...

I love the Arthur Miller quote! Liz Blocker blogged about something similar to this today. Writing for money has very little significance for me at this time. I earn money from the books I sell at schools but this is hardly enough to support myself in the real world... which is why I have the dreaded day job.
But with this being said, one of the BEST profits I make out of the business is the feeling I get after I have given an author presentation to the children. They are truly my inspiration and one of the main reasons I am passionate about succeeding in this business. If I could visit every school in the country, I would!

DMS said...

These are great! I agree that we shouldn't let anyone steal our joy! Always a good reminder. :)

Thanks for the lovely inspirational quotes!

Lynda R Young said...

Dixie@dcrelief said...

I think the background of the muse quote would be nice with Miller's quote.
Enjoy your week.

LD Masterson said...

As you said...especially that last one.

dolorah said...

I'm worried my muse felt abandoned and left me :(

Those are inspirational quotes.

Winter Moon said...

Wonderfully inspirational! I love them all :) ♥

Sherry Ellis said...

Love those quotes! I especially like the first one.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I am a meme junkie, so I <3 you today!!! Love the profit one, live by the joy one. Life is too short to let other people have my joy. I refuse. It's mine. I guard it greedily!

Medeia Sharif said...

All of these resonated with me. Great quotes.

klahanie said...

Hey Lexa!

Wow and check them quotes! I'm inspired at gone five in the morning. Yes, I'm actually here, I quote myself.

Nice to see you, my kind friend. To prove I'm back, I want to thank you for being part of "IWSG" aka "I Was Seeking Gary."

Gary :)

Annalisa Crawford said...

My muse is such a slave-driver :-)

Lori L MacLaughlin said...

Great quotes, Lexa! I should read them all every day.

Melissa said...

They're all great, but I laughed out loud at the second one. :)

Georgina Morales said...

Babies are just precious. There's nothing that a laughing baby can't make better. Thanks for sharing!

Great quotes, I particularly like the third one.
