Favorite September Quotes

10351068_10202854941240476_7605593307813178987_nThere’s been a lot of inactivity on this blog as of late and I apologize for that. I haven’t been reading or writing as much due to busyness on the design side of life. I have big plans for this blog. Soon I will be introducing another reviewer and incorporating more writings from famous authors and poets.

This is the first in that latter task. These are some of the quotes that I’ve found and connected with over the course of this month. I hope they are able to help you as they have me.

“You really don’t understand an antagonist until you understand why he’s a protagonist in his own version of the world.” – John Rogers
“I have known the joy and pain of friendship. I have served and been served. I have made some good enemies for which I am not a bit sorry. I have loved unselfishly, and I have fondled hatred with the red-hot tongs of Hell. That’s living.”
― Zora Neale Hurston
“Everyone needs a certain amount of money. Beyond that, we pursue money because we know how to obtain it. We don’t necessarily know how to obtain happiness.”
— Gregg Easterbrook
“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”
–Victor Hugo
“All life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other.”
— H.P. Lovecraft
“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”
― William Styron, Conversations with William Styron
“In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes.”
― Antoine Lavoisier
“Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author’s words reverberating in your head.”
― Paul Auster, The Brooklyn Follies

Let me know if any of these call to you! And thanks for reading,
