Daily Writing Quote – Thomas Powers

"It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop."

 ~Vita Sackville-West (via criticlyanonymous)

"Only a few of us are going to be willing to break our own hearts by trading in the living beauty of imagination for the stark disappointment of words."

Ann Patchett (via word-cavities)
