    My current favorite quote is:

    "If you don't have the time to read, then you don't have the time or the tools to write."
    -Stephen King

    How true is that? Answer: 100%

    Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity;
    From discord find harmony;
    In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

    “I discovered that my obsession for having each thing in the right place, each subject at the right time, each word in the right style, was not the well-deserved reward of an ordered mind but just the opposite: a complete system of pretense invented by me to hide the disorder of my nature. I discovered that I am not disciplined out of virtue but as a reaction to my negligence, that I appear generous in order to conceal my meanness, that I pass myself off as prudent because I am evil-minded, that I am conciliatory in order not to succumb to my repressed rage, that I am punctual only to hide how little I care about other people’s time. I learned, in short, that love is not a condition of the spirit but a sign of the zodiac.”

    -Gabriel García Márquez, Memories of My Melancholy Whores

    That's a favorite of mine, as well. Thank you for sharing.

    Okay, here are a few of my favourite Oscar Wilde quotes...always guaranteed to make me chuckle/think!

    "Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go."

    "Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future."

    "Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same."

    "Men always want to be a woman's first love, women like to be a man's last romance."

    "Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when all the flowers are dead."

    "I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying."

    "It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious."


    And my all time favourite..."I can resist everything except temptation."

    Some writers try to evade the no-adverb rule by shooting the attribution verb full of steroids. The result is familiar to any reader of pulp fiction or paperback originals:

    "Put down the gun!" Jekyll grated.
    "Never stop kissing me!" Shayna gasped.
    "You damned tease!" Bill jerked out.

    Don't do these things. Please oh please. - Stephen King (On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft)

    A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.
    ~ Leo Buscaglia
