I could go on and on with favorite quotes about writing...
Since I was young, I've loved quotes. I think it may be from watching and listening to my dad. He was always jotting a favorite verse or quote from a book or sermon on a piece of paper. They were usually tucked in his Bible. He would often share them with us at home or make mention of a special one before singing in church or during a prayer meeting.
Over the years, I've kept my quotes in journals but a few years ago, I started collecting them on a blog. It's called "Little House on the Ridge". I gather quotes that speak to me about teaching, reading, writing, praying, and more.
My collection of quotes can be found at Little House on the Ridge.
