Heavy Quote from a Heavy Mind

Though the quote didn’t come from my mind…and though I may not enjoy much of her work….she spoke volume to me with these hefty lines.

“There’s a difference between writing for a living and writing for life. If you write for a living, you make enormous compromises, and you might not even be able to uncompromise yourself. If you write for life, you’ll work hard; you’ll do what’s honest, not what pays.”— Toni Morrison

This profound principle will get me through many difficult situations in the future. I hope that my eyes stay clear and my heart stays focused.
