D is for Dedication

D is for Dedication

“Talent is cheap; dedication is expensive. It will cost you your life.”
Irving Stone, The Agony and the Ecstasy 
“Don’t ever give up.
Don’t ever give in.
Don’t ever stop trying.
Don’t ever sell out.
And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment,
pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off.
But never, ever, ever give up.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Eena: The Two Sisters

“If you had started doing anything two weeks ago, by today you would have been two weeks better at it.”
John Mayer

  1. Absolutely love that first quote! And that last one is totally true. 🙂

  2. Julie Luek says:

    I like Mayer’s sentiment. I try to remember those kinds of thoughts when I think I’m too old to really do this writing thing. In ten years, I’ll be ten years older whether I write or not. I might as well write!

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, that Irving Stone quote!

  4. Inger says:

    Words to live by, indeed.

  5. Love your blog site. Great “D” word, too. I especially like the quote from John Mayer… gives on incentive to start… no matter the outcome you will develop experience!
