Easier Said Than Done #Quotes

Trees in Van Cortlandt Park #NYC, Fall 2015

There are quotes and sayings that make you want to throw a book at someone.

Just make sure it isn’t your own, or another good/favorite title.

Like the “stop thinking already” quotes, as if you could just press a button to stop the random thoughts that, that—

“Stop thinking, and end your problems.” 

Lao-Tzu

“If you try to know it, you already departed from it.”

Chuang-Tzu

Maybe there’s something else lost in translation. 

Or maybe it’s that you’re so deep and close, you really can’t see the forest for the trees.

And quotes can sometimes add that distance when you need it. Those words that we – as writers – know so well and the relationship we have to the craft.

“At the moment you are in awe of all there is about life that you don’t understand, you are closer to understanding it all than at any other time.”

Jane Wagner
