Quotes On Writing And Freedom #5: Personal Freedom

Writing is a form of personal freedom.

It frees us from the mass identity we see in the making all around us. In the end, writers will write not to be outlaw heroes of some underculture but mainly to save themselves, to survive as individuals.

Don DeLillo

    I hope you’re having a restful Sunday, Joanna.

    Thank you for mentioning again the quote on writing- I hope everyone found it, at least, a little inspiring.

    Scott, I am, except Edinburgh is *way too busy* Back for a cup of tea now - managed to escape from the crowds.

    I think the quote is very powerful - I’m sure people will take something from it

    And aren’t we glad we live in countries where we can write with freedom.

    Absolutely. I’ve had that same thought each time I’ve shared a freedom quote.
