So I'm at home procrastinating doing something important, and I remembered Stumbleupon. Whew. A good, fun half-hour almost wasted. But wait, good thing I decided to take screenshots as I went along. It might make an interesting blog post.
First some quotes from one of the random pages that Stumbleupon served up tonight for our viewing pleasure.
"If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." Toni Morrison
"A woman must have money and room of her own if she is to write fiction." Virginia Woolf (Hmm, not a bad idea for a male writer either.)
"Write without pay until somebody offers to pay." Mark Twain
"Words have weight, sound and appearance; it is only by considering these that you can write a sentence that is good to look at and good to listen to." Somerset Maugham
"A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people." Thomas Mann
"You must write for yourself, above all. That is [your] only hope of creating something beautiful." Gustave Flaubert
"Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else." Gloria Steinem (except for sex!)
Now for a few visuals -
