Hello, and welcome to my blog. Today I have a few quotes on writing, ones that I feel speak to me about what writing means to me and also stand for whatever passion you have in your soul. What makes your spirit sing? What makes you feel alive and energized? Is there something that makes you feel on purpose? For me, that thing is writing poetry. Hence the search for motivational quotes.

I hope you like the ones I found and chose to share today! Here is the first quote:



Write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow.” Lawrence Clark Powell



I like the quote above because it expresses why I write (my poetry comes from my heart, in a attempt to express and understand my emotions, my Self) and also how I feel about speaking – I am actually a girl of few words (paper being the exception)! I love silence and yet truly enjoy deep, meaningful conversation. And reading? Yes! I love to get lost in a story and I love to be changed by what I have read. A book that impacts me, makes me just a little bit different, somehow, for the reading of it, is my kind of book!

Here is another quote:

“Writing has been to me like a bath from which I have risen feeling cleaner, healthier

and freer.” Henrik Ibsen



Ah, the above quote makes me feel refreshed. Renewed. It is a sense of purging, of renewal and the embracing of a new start that I get from this quote. A lightness. One that comes from washing away the past, letting go. Embracing the future and preparing for possibilities.

I know that writing has begun to mean so much more to me lately even though my focus on it has been slowly changing this past school year. I do hold the vision of many books in my future, some poetry and others children’s stories.

What kind of dream -writing or otherwise- are others helping you with right now? Do you have any quotes, stories or books that have been instrumental in assisting you? Let’s share and encourage each other!

You are part of my dream coming true just by being involved in my blog. It takes a village to raise a dream! So, on that note, let my say thank you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
