“When you’re young, you say what you feel.
When you’re adult, you speak what you think.
When you grow old, you listen to what nature says.” – Toba Beta

“A writer out of loneliness is trying to communicate like a distant star sending signals. He isn’t telling, or teaching, or ordering. Rather, he seeks to establish a relationship with meaning, of feeling, of observing. We are lonesome animals. We spend all our live trying to be less lonesome. And one of our ancient methods is to tell a story, begging the listener to say, and to feel, “Yes, that’s the way it is, or at least that’s the way I feel it. You’re not as alone as you thought.” To finish is sadness to a writer, a little death. He puts the last word down and it is done. But it isn’t really done. The story goes on and leaves the writer behind, for no story is ever done.” – John Steinbeck

“It’s hard to learn to listen to your instincts. It’s easier for some who have a natural ability to follow that little voice inside, but for others it takes practice.” – Judith-Victoria Douglas
