I came across this post this week, showcasing famous quotes from writers who died in 2014, and thought it was worth sharing. Some amazing authors passed away last year – Maya Angelou remains a favourite of mine after I was introduced to her writing during high school English – and this article features some of their most memorable and inspiring words.

In 2014, I picked up a bit of a pinterest habit – for anyone who loves words and quotes, there are just too many to like! So, I thought I’d share here with you my favourites each week – because you’re a sophisticated bunch and will hopefully like them too 🙂
So, to get us started, here’s a nice quote on books, from Stephen King – because he knows a thing or two about them…
Everyone has their creative or artistic niche don’t they – the writer, the painter, the illustrator – and there are some lucky people who get morethan one of these skills. I am not one of those people – writing and a bit of dabbling (electronically) with book covers is my limit. If you are in any doubt to the truth of this, I present as Exhibit A my attempt at decorated gingerbread men (well, man and lady – you’ve got to have balance):
There’s just something weird that happens between the picture in my brain that I want things to look like, and what my hands actually manage to do. (The same goes for drawing, painting and pretty much any other artistic pursuit). A quick click-click on google and I discover some infinitely superior dressed gingerbread people to reinforce my theory…
But you know what, they still tasted good when I munched on their brains Walking Dead-style 🙂
