An incurable itch for scribbling takes possession of many, and grows inveterate in their insane breasts.
I, like most people who keep a journal, use writing to scrutinize all aspects of life and to find God in the midst of the mess.
Writing good editorials is chiefly telling the people what they think, not what you think.
The best use of a journal is to print the largest practical amount of important truth -- truth which tends to make mankind wiser, and thus happier.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and about all time.
~George Bernard Shaw
At night, when the objective world has slunk back into its cavern and left dreamers to their own, there come inspirations and capabilities impossible at any less magical and quiet hour. No one knows whether or not he is a writer unless he has tried writing at night.
~H. P. Lovecraft
