10 Things: Quotes to Get You Through Your First Draft #2 – Honorable Mentions

Hey there!

Here are the honorable mention quotes I told you about in my last post. I hope you enjoy!

Honorable Mentions

“People forget how fast you did a job – but they remember how well you did it”

Howard Newton

“No one can say if you are that person who, given good paint, good brushes, and a fine canvas, can produce something better than the factory man. That is, and has always been, beyond the realm of science. You do have the attitude of the dreamer about you. For that reason, I haven’t the heart to argue anymore about this – it is a hopeless talk. And for a simple factory man like me, an effort must be abandoned once its hopelessness is exposed. Only the artist perseveres in such circumstances.”

David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

“Still the voices of your critics. Listen intently to your own voice, to the person who knows you best. Then answer these questions: Do you think you should move ahead? How will you feel if you quit pursuing this thing you want to do? And what does your best self advise? What you hear may change your life.”

Steve Goodier

“I know you’re tired…but this is your time, Laney. Claim your power. Make everything…from the beginning until the end…make it all count.”

R.W. Patterson

And I Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love these last four:

“Christians walk as strangers in the world: They are untamed. They are free. To persevere with love, yet untamed by man, is often what leaves that open space for divine revelation when God so wills.”

Criss Jami, Killosophy

“In the sympathy of Christ we find a sustaining power.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Morning and Evening, Based on the English Standard Version

“Stand firm, and you will win life.”


“Do everything in love.”


That’s all for today!

As always,

Go forward,

God bless,

Be strong.
