Writing Quote Friday

Today’s quote comes from Robert Frost…

No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.

  1. PK,

    I admit, this one I had to re-read a few times to understand since it’s a bit abrupt, but then once I got it I loved it too 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by. I really am enjoying your new blog!


  2. Carol,
    I’m glad you enjoy the Friday quotes. It’s always so interesting the different advice different writers have about the business of writing.

    Also, I wanted you know know that the kitty and puppy have now become the best of friends! As I type this they are snuggled up on the bed, about a foot away from each other. The last few days were tough, but now what a reward!


  3. Regina,

    There are two parts in my novel that make me cry EVERY TIME I read them, and one part that makes my heart race from excitement.

    I hope that bodes well for other readers 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by,

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

    I checked out your blog and loved how you used the Robert Frost quote!


    • It’s one of my favorites, as well as his poem, the Road Less Traveled By. Do you read Ralph Waldo Emerson? Good stuff there as well.

      Thanks for checking out my blog and keep up the good work!


  5. Steve,

    I love the Road Not Taken by Frost so much that it’s my “quote” under my photo on my facebook page.

    Emerson, Whitman, and Yeats will keep me going for days…love their work.

    Thanks again,

    • Christi,
      A favorite quote, from his essay, Friendship:

      “I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new. Shall I not call God the Beautiful, who daily showeth himself so to me in his gifts? I chide society, I embrace solitude, and yet I am not so ungrateful as not to see the wise, the lovely, and the noble-minded, as from time to time they pass my gate. Who hears me, who understands me, becomes mine, — a possession for all time. Nor is nature so poor but she gives me this joy several times, and thus we weave social threads of our own, a new web of relations; and, as many thoughts in succession substantiate themselves, we shall by and by stand in a new world of our own creation, and no longer strangers and pilgrims in a traditionary globe.” –RWE

  6. Steve,

    That is beautiful, and even though it’s years later after it was originally written it’s still just as timely.

    My favorite by Whitman is the very last paragraph of “Song of Myself”.

    Happy Monday!
