Inspiration Friday!

I was looking through some writing quotes the other day, and got a fun idea. There are so many great quotes about writing, from everyone from Stephen King, to T.S. Elliott, to Albert Einstein. Some are funny, some are serious, but all are totally appropriate in one way or another. Combine that with the fact that--statistically speaking--Friday is the day in which the largest number of query letters/submissions get rejected by agents(stat from Writer's Digest online), and you have the perfect recipe for my all new Inspiration Friday! Every Friday morning from now on, I will post a few writing quotes to help inspire you to get through the rejection fest that may be coming, and into the weekend with a smile!

So, without further ado, here are our quotes for the week!

I love being a writer. What I can't stand is the paperwork.
~ Peter de Vries

Most writers can write books faster than publishers can write checks.
~ Richard Curtis

Imagination is more important than knowledge. 
~ Albert Einstein

Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book. 
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats. 
~ Howard Aiken

I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk
~ Stephen King

You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club. 
~ Jack London

Being a good writer is 3% talent, 97% not being distracted by the Internet.
