Historical Books quotes by Susan Wiggs

#4. I love my lecture tours. I get up onstage. I have my stack of books and a glass of water and a microphone. No podium, no distance between me and the audience, and I just talk to people and get all excited and tell a lot of jokes, and sing some songs, and read from my work and remind people how powerful they are and how beautiful they are. #Quote by Suzan-Lori Parks
Historical Books quotes by Joanna Russ
#5. At thirteen desperately watching TV, curling my long legs under me, desperately reading books, callow adolescent that I was, trying (desperately!) to find someone in books, in movies, in life, in history, to tell me it was O.K. to be ambitious, O.K. to be loud, O.K. to be Humphrey Bogart (smart and rudeness), O.K. to be James Bond (arrogance), O.K. to be Superman (power), O.K. to be Douglas Fairbanks (swashbuckling), to tell me self-love was all right, to tell me I could love God and Art and Myself better than anything on earth and still have orgasms. #Quote by Joanna Russ

Historical Books quotes by Maria Rhodora G. Ancheta
#11. ...humor is, in fact, a Filipino national weapon---one that is utilized not only to reflect social foibles and cultural beliefs that allow Filipinos to find belonging in using humor as a response to crippling national horrors, but one that is used to train an apparently disparaging look at themselves as victims of embarrassing and painful historical, political, or cultural circumstances. We see in these texts that the laughter that resonates in the Filipino is more than just an acceptable national trait that underscores the fixed Filipino stereotype of cheerfulness and pleasantness. #Quote by Maria Rhodora G. Ancheta
Historical Books quotes by Shari Green
#12. If you love books
read a great many books.
If you love to sing,
sing loudly and often.
Whatever you do
do it with all your heart. #Quote by Shari Green
Historical Books quotes by Tim Herrera
#13. Yet of the countless articles, books and so-called lifehacks about productivity I've read (or written!), the only "trick" that has ever truly and consistently worked is both the simplest and the most difficult to master: just getting started.

Enter micro-progress.

Pardon the gimmicky phrase, but the idea goes like this: For any task you have to complete, break it down into the smallest possible units of progress and attack them one at a time.
My favorite expansion of this concept is in this post by James Clear.

In it, he uses Newton's laws of motion as analogies for productivity. To wit, rule No. 1: "Objects in motion tend to stay in motion. Find a way to get started in less than two minutes."
And it's not just gimmicky phrases and so-called lifehacking: Studies have shown that you can trick your brain into increasing dopamine levels by setting and achieving, you guessed it, micro-goals.

Going even further, success begets success. In a 2011 Harvard Business Review article, researchers reported finding that "ordinary, incremental progress can increase people's engagement in the work and their happiness during the workday. #Quote by Tim Herrera
Historical Books quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#14. No, she laughed." How on earth could that be done? If you try to laugh and say 'No' at the same time, it sounds like neighing - yet people are perpetually doing it in novels. If they did it in real life they would be locked up. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Historical Books quotes by PewDiePie
#15. Save the Children is an awesome charity that has helped more than 125 million children around the world, providing everything from school books to food to blankets and shelter. #Quote by PewDiePie
Historical Books quotes by Robert Galbraith
#16. Writers are a savage breed, Mr. Strike. If you want life-long friendship and selfless camaraderie, join the army and learn to kill. If you want a lifetime of temporary alliances with peers who will glory in your every failure, write novels. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Historical Books quotes by John Gimlette
#17. I slightly feel, having written Paraguay and Newfoundland - and both of them have developed eccentricities through isolation - I am quite relieved to be back in France and Germany, and I want people to enjoy these books for the writing and not because they feel they can laugh - some will laugh - at these eccentric places, that's not what I intend. #Quote by John Gimlette
Historical Books quotes by Lynn Sposito
#18. Books are about the only family I have; they practically raised me," she said. #Quote by Lynn Sposito
Historical Books quotes by Kristin Hannah
#19. So now books were her only friends. She'd read Lord of the Rings so often she could recite whole scenes by memory.
It was not a skill that aided one in becoming popular. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Historical Books quotes by Rick Holland
#20. The world belongs to those who read. #Quote by Rick Holland
Historical Books quotes by Wendelin Van Draanen
#21. I rewrite my books many times before submitting them, and after my editor takes a look I wind up rewriting some more! It's a good thing I learned at an early age to keep on trying. Stick to it, and eventually you'll get there. #Quote by Wendelin Van Draanen
Historical Books quotes by Paul Willems
#22. I believe style is a kind of meta-language whose secrets must be learned, which is made up not only of whatever text we are reading, but of the books we have been reading for years, whose outlines lie like watermarks beneath the lines of every new work we encounter. #Quote by Paul Willems
Historical Books quotes by Carl Sagan
#23. Or consider the mainstream religions. We are enjoined in Micah to do justly and love mercy; in Exodus we are forbidden to commit murder; in Leviticus we are commanded to love our neighbor as ourselves; and in the Gospels we are urged to love our enemies. Yet think of the rivers of blood spilled by fervent followers of the books in which these well-meaning exhortations are embedded. In #Quote by Carl Sagan
Historical Books quotes by Patricia Polacco
#24. My books cover many aspects of daily life through which your children will recognize their own relationships in their families and communities. #Quote by Patricia Polacco
Historical Books quotes by J. Lynn
#25. Racing up the wide staircase, I barreled through the double doors and smacked right into a brick wall.
Stumbling backward, my arms flailed like a cracked-out crossing guard. My over-packed messenger bag slipped, pulling me to one side. My hair
flew it front of my face, a sheet of auburn that obscured everything as I teetered dangerously.
Oh dear God, I was going down. There was no stopping it. Visions of broken necks danced in my head. This was going to suck so
Something strong and hard went around my waist, stopping my free fall. My bag hit the floor, spilling overpriced books and pens across the shiny
floor. My pens! My glorious pens rolled everywhere. A second later I was pressed against the wall.
The wall was strangely warm.
The wall chuckled.
"Whoa," a deep voice said. "You okay, sweetheart? #Quote by J. Lynn
Historical Books quotes by Bauvard
#26. When someone gives me either a democratic or republican pamphlet, I throw it in their face. I'm a librarian, damn it! We only take book donations. #Quote by Bauvard
Historical Books quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#27. Tell me I didn't imagine it, Leo. Tell me that even though our bodies were in seperate states, our star selves shared an enchanted place. Tell me that right around noon today (eastern time) you had the strangest sensation: a tiny chill on your shoulder ... a flutter in the heart ... a shadow of strawberry-banana crossing your tongue ... tell me you whispered my name. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Historical Books quotes by Barbara Cartland
#28. People don't roll around naked in my books. I do allow them to go to bed if they're married, but it's all very wonderful and the moon beams. #Quote by Barbara Cartland
Historical Books quotes by Ken Bruen
#29. I decided to write books, just to prove to myself that I was still alive, if nothing else. #Quote by Ken Bruen
Historical Books quotes by John Berendt
#30. What do you read?

I read what friends tell me is good. This explains the book's success, partially. It got very good reviews. Good reviews will get you a readership right away, but that's it. The review or the article appears one day in a magazine or a newspaper, then it's gone. Word of mouth is a continuing phenomenon, much more powerful. #Quote by John Berendt
Historical Books quotes by Lang Leav
#31. I wrote your name over and over - on scraps of paper, in books and on the back of my wrists. I carved it like sacred markings into trees and the tops of my thighs. Years went by and the scars have vanished, but the sting has not left me. Sometimes when I read a book, parts will lift from the pages in an anagram of your name. Like a code to remind me it's not over. Like dyslexia in reverse. #Quote by Lang Leav
Historical Books quotes by Mordecai Richler
#32. When a child is born, I once explained to the kids, some dads lay down bottles of wine for them that will mature when they grow up into ungrateful adults. Instead, what you're going to get from me, as each of you turns sixteen, is a library of the one hundred books that gave me the most pleasure when I was a know-nothing adolescent. #Quote by Mordecai Richler
Historical Books quotes by Sonya Hartnett
#33. I have thought you could not give everything to your books and also to your children, so for a long time, I thought if I had a child or a family, I'd think, 'How would I support them?' because basically I would stop writing. #Quote by Sonya Hartnett
Historical Books quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#34. Men call women faithless, changeable, and though they say it in jealousy of their own ever-threatened sexual honor, there is some truth in it. We can change our life, our being; no matter what our will is, we are changed. As the moon changes yet is one, so we are virgin, wife, mother, grandmother. For all their restlessness, men are who they are; once they put on the man's toga they will not change again; so they make a virtue of that rigidity and resist whatever might soften it and set them free. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Historical Books quotes by Roz Chast
#35. I don't think any of my kids' books talk down to kids. #Quote by Roz Chast
Historical Books quotes by Mitch Albom
#36. For years I wrote in my basement. More recently I graduated to one floor above, an office with all my books and music and - ta da! - a window. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Historical Books quotes by Colleen Hoover
#37. A crash. Books fall to the speckled linoleum floor. They #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Historical Books quotes by Sheridan Hay
#38. The Arcade, and now Peabody's, combined to tell me that there was life in objects, in books. It was all about having eyes to see the true meaning of things. As Pike proved daily, books held a kind of magic, an apparent as well as a hidden value. #Quote by Sheridan Hay
Historical Books quotes by Robin Sloan
#39. I see it now. You cheated - would that be fair to say? And as a result, you have no idea what you have accomplished. #Quote by Robin Sloan
Historical Books quotes by Raven Rapaich
#40. I just want to read as many books as I can before my final chapter ends and my book closes. #Quote by Raven Rapaich
Historical Books quotes by Stephen Hawking
#41. I have sold more books on physics than Madonna has on sex. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Historical Books quotes by Naomi Wood
#42. Paris without a good book is like a pretty girl with only one eye. #Quote by Naomi Wood
Historical Books quotes by Pope Francis
#43. Newness often makes us fearful, including the newness God brings us, the newness God asks of us. We are like the apostles in the Gospel: often we would prefer to hold on to our own security, to stand in front of a tomb, to think about someone who has died, someone who ultimately lives on only as a memory, like the great historical figures from the past. We are afraid of God's surprises. #Quote by Pope Francis
Historical Books quotes by Cornelia Funke
#44. The books in Mo and Meggie's house were stacked under tables, on chairs, in the corners of the rooms. There were books in the kitchen and books in the lavatory. Books on the TV set and in the closet, small piles of books, tall piles of books, books thick and thin, books old and new. They welcomed Meggie down to breakfast with invitingly opened pages; they kept boredom at bay when the weather was bad. And sometimes you fell over them. "He's just standing there!" whispered Meggie, leading Mo into her room. "Has he got a hairy face? If so he could be a werewolf." "Oh, stop it!" Meggie looked at him sternly, although his jokes made her feel less scared. Already, she hardly believed anymore in the figure standing in the rain - until she knelt down again at the window. "There! Do you see him?" she whispered. Mo looked out through the raindrops running down the #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Historical Books quotes by Hilary Mantel
#45. The old always think the world is getting worse; it is for the young, equipped with historical facts, to point out that, compared with 1509, or even 1939, life in 2009 is sweet as honey. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Historical Books quotes by John Fusco
#46. As a writer of both novels and screenplays, I can say that screenwriting is a vastly rewarding creative life - if you fight hard enough to do it on your own terms. Whether I write books or not, my screenwriting life has been creatively rewarding and remains so. #Quote by John Fusco
Historical Books quotes by Carla H. Krueger
#47. One day, I decided I was going to write books forever. #Quote by Carla H. Krueger
