Inspiring Words That Connect Us Together

Do you love collecting quotations? Me too.

I was gifted a quote earlier this week by Lillie Amann at A Writer’s Life, An Editor’s Eye. She was passing on the words as part of a tag. The idea is to post a quote that speaks from and to your heart, and to dedicate it to at least three other bloggers.

What a great idea.

The quote Lillie offered was this one from James Dean:

“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.”

I was honoured to receive this from Lillie, because she’s one of my favourite bloggers, managing to combine an uplifting attitude with a totally down-to-earth no-nonsense manner (I think that might be her editor’s eye).

This is a lovely one to pass on, and although it’s hard to choose from so many people who are part of my blogging life, I’m dedicating these words to Robyn McMaster, Brad Shorr, Robert Hruzek, Yvonne Russell and Jeanne Dininni, bloggers who - with Lillie - have been here supporting and encouraging me for many months now, and who have helped and encouraged me to stretch with ever greater confidence.

The line I’ve chosen captures what I think is great and inspiring about writing and blogging online, as part of a community. It’s by Luciano de Crescenzo

“We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another”

All of you who read, link, comment, stumble, twitter and generally support me are part of that embrace and I am grateful to all of you, truly.
