The Opportunist

“Dear optimist, pessimist, and realist–while you guys were busy arguing about the glass of wine, I drank it! Sincerely, the opportunist!”

~ Lori Greiner – Inventor, Born: December 9, 1969

Realistic Fiction

“To think that realistic fiction is by definition superior to imaginative fiction is to think imitation is superior to invention.”

~ Ursula K. Le Guin – Author, Born: October 21, 1929

Define Your Character

“Go without a coat when it’s cold; find out what cold is. Go hungry; keep your existence lean. Wear away the fat, get down to the lean tissue and see what it’s all about. The only time you define your character is when you go without. In times of hardship, you find out what you’re made of and what you’re capable of. If you’re never tested, you’ll never define you character.”

~ Henry Rollins – Musician, February 13, 1961-
