Quotes of the moment

"Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand." 
George Orwell

"Keep a diary and someday it'll keep you." Mae West

"What you are is a complicated girl with simple needs. You need your books and time to read and you need a few friends and you need someone---not to take care of you but to care for you. If you have all those things, you'll always be all right." Brian Morton

Lastly, for my favorite feminist:

"Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry." Gloria Steinem


  1. Love these quotes, and the one by Mae West made me smile. I can just imagine her saying it in that spectacularly Mae style~

  2. The first one is so true - who would willingly sign up for this?

  3. Love the quotes, especially the George Orwell one.

  4. Guess I'm following the crowd. Loved the George Orwell one, too. We are insane, aren't we?! :)

  5. The first one fits me perfectly. Great quotes, Saumya.

  6. Who is this Brian Morton, that knows me so well? :) *googles*
