Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre (via libranta)
"As opposed to the discoveries of science, whose truths continually change, myth, like art is eternal. Myth in a sense is the highest reality… Myth serves to interpret the whole of human experience and that interpretation can be true or fictitious, valuable or insubstantial, quite apart from its historical veracity."
Classical Mythology, 9th Edition
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith
"I’ve lost track of the number of people who want to be writers but never actually write anything. Talking about writing, dreaming about writing, can be very fun, but it won’t get a book written. You’ve got to write."
Laurell K. Hamilton (via ilivetowriteandinspire)
Anita Brookner (via writingquotes)
Garth Nix, Abhorsen
Gustave Flaubert (via srjoo)
Lord Byron (via misplacedblues)
