There comes a point in a relationship when you realize that you trust someone enough to let them keep their secrets.

Hi there,

Sometimes, however, people forget that a secret stays a secret forever.

Cheers

Here, he could exist; "but mere existence is not enough," he sighed; "to live, one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower!"

You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.

William Faulkner

William Faulkner was a titan of American literature, but his path to literary success wasn’t the smoothest — he had to lose sight of the shore before he found his way. With the outbreak of World War I, he tried to join the U.S. Army but was rejected for being too short, so he joined the Canadian RAF. He then enrolled at the University of Mississippi, but his efforts resulted in a “D” grade in English. He worked odd jobs and had a handful of poems published, but it was his move to bohemian New Orleans that set him on a new course, shifting from poetry to prose. His first three novels were only moderately successful and left him at odds with his publishers. So, in 1928, he began writing “The Sound and the Fury,” using a more experimental style. The novel wasn’t immediately successful, but Faulkner had very much found his new horizon.

Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than before it.

Madeleine L'Engle

American writer Madeleine L’Engle produced more than 60 works in her lifetime, including bestselling novels such as “A Wrinkle in Time” and several poetry collections. Of course, such a vast and impressive body of work didn’t come easily. L’Engle spoke often of the diligence and perseverance necessary to create. Waiting for a bolt of creative lightning to strike, she explained, is a surefire way to never get started. Her words here remind us that when we commit time and effort to our work, inspiration will follow.

Whatever you want emotionally, you have to start giving away.

Mary Karr

Author Mary Karr is known for her ability to capture the essence of the human experience on the page. Her work has inspired many writers to be more open and honest in their stories. This quote is from her memoir “Lit,” published in 2009 after her first two books, “The Liar’s Club” and “Cherry.” It suggests that by sharing our own emotional truth, we open ourselves up to receive as well.

I learned that a friend may be waiting behind a stranger’s face.

Maya Angelou

This unifying sentiment by writer and civil rights activist Maya Angelou is from her 2008 book "Letter to My Daughter," a collection of essays featuring advice for young women about living a life of meaning. Although Angelou herself never had a daughter, she dedicated this book to women from all walks of life: “I gave birth to one child, a son, but I have thousands of daughters,” she wrote. “You are black and white, Jewish and Muslim, Asian, Spanish speaking, Native Americans and Aleut. You are fat and thin and pretty and plain, gay and straight, educated and unlettered, and I am speaking to you all.” Growing up in segregated Arkansas, Angelou was the target of racial prejudice and discrimination, but her work speaks of grace and equality at every turn. Her words above remind us of the connections that can be missed through judgment, or gained with tolerance and compassion.

Memory is more than a dustbin of time, stuffed with yesterday's trash. Rather, memory is a glorious grab bag of the past from which one can at leisure pluck bittersweet experiences of times gone by and relive them.
~Hal Boyle, 1971
