Author Quotes

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go.

So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple

Young cat, if you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you would learn! The most wonderful stuff!

Don't cry because it ended. Smile because it happened.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Always be who you are, and say what you feel, because people who mind don’t matter, and people who matter don’t mind.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Adults are obsolete children.
