Today's blog post is a smattering of quotes especially for writers.

"Essays are not arranged by plot, but by anxieties. They don't wonder, 'What next?' Instead, like a worried parent they ask, 'Now what?' with a groan."--Steven Harvey
"Poetry must be new as foam, and as old as the rock."--Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that."--Mark Twain

"Nobody ever committed suicide while reading a good book but many have tried while trying to write one."--Robert Byrne
