"THIS TOO SHALL PASS!" I looked for years for this quote in the scriptures. Finally I found this information, for what it is worth.

The origin of the saying "this too shall pass" appears to date back to a story told about King Solomon. It is said that the King, feeling blue, asked his advisors to find him a ring he had seen in a dream. "When I feel satisfied I’m afraid that it won’t last. And when I don’t, I am afraid my sorrow will go on forever. Find me the ring that will ease my suffering." Eventually an advisor met an old jeweler who carved into a simple gold band the Hebrew inscription "gam zeh ya’avor" – "this too shall pass."

I think I will have a ring made for myself with this quote. LOL


"Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." Heb. 11:1

"A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper." — Ursula K. Le Guin

"You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children." — Madeleine L'Engle

Who are your favorite writers and what do they have to say about the process of writing? I have a ton of faves but then I've been reading voraciously since I was in the first grade and made it through my first, The Adventures of Dick and Jane textbook!
My best to all of you.
Johannah
