A Fistfull of Quotes

I found a list of quotes I used to tack on my wall. You might dig these.

“Be like a steady promontory against which continually breaks the waves of life.” Marcus Aurelius

“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches.” Rainer Maria Rilke

“Everywhere I go I’m asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don’t stifle enough of them. There’s many a best-seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.” Flannery O’Connor

“When in doubt, blow something up.” J. Michael Straczynski

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather a man of value.” Albert Einstein

“I don’t have a moral plan. I’m a Canadian.” David Cronenberg
