Hi all! I know I'm a bit late getting this up and that I've been lax about posting. The past several months I've been dealing with some personal issues and writing and all that. Time slips away and before I know it another day/week/month has passed. Speaking of time, I just had another birthday fly by me. Had a memorable day ~ met up with a couple of great friends and hubby, had dinner then went to a writer's meeting. Hubby gave me some bling for my 40th ~ a beautiful Wittnauer Krystal Ladies watch and on the face it shows the phases of the moon. It's the kind of watch I can wear for special occasions. It's sparkly silver with hand-set European crystal accents around the face and along the band. Some women have an obsession with shoes, for me it's watches. & once I have disposable income, flip-flops... look out DSW!
Which leads me into my Monday Message, another thing I like to collect are quotes. Back in highschool I'd have quotes written all over my brown-bag covers. Now when I see a quote I like, it goes into a file on my computer. So what I'll be doing over the next few weeks is sharing some of the quotes I've collected and looking forward to you sharing any you may have. And if any of the quotes strike a chord with you, feel free to share your thoughts about it.
So to start off, here's one that I thought would be good for us writers to keep in mind when the not so stellar review comes in...
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." THEODORE ROOSEVELT (Paris Sorbonne,1910)
