Quotes for the Writer

This week’s Quotes of the Week are ones that appealed to the poet in me: the first made that poet sing, and the second made the poet grin for the sad truth of it. I know I’m not seeing any money in the future of it, but then, I knew that going in. If you’re writing just for money, after all, you’re doing it wrong…

“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for the Creator, there is no poverty.” ~Rilke

“Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money.” ~Jules Renard
