John Steinbeck on the Magic in Story Writing

“If there is a magic in story writing, and I am convinced there is, no one has ever been able to reduce it to a recipe that can be passed from one person to another.”–John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck (November 1939)

Eleanor Roosevelt on Life

“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can think bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.”–Eleanor Roosevelt (The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt)

Shared for the last nine words of the quote.

Eleanor Roosevelt (20 July 1933).
