  1. I think the second one is my favourite, mostly because I agree with it! 😉 Writing is magic, as we’ve established so firmly, and sometimes it can be the most difficult (and yet the most rewarding) thing in the world.

    • I had actually you in mind when selecting the second quote, Topaz. 🙂
      And I couldn’t agree more: writing is magic, difficult, and rewarding.

      • Well, no wonder it sounds like it was tailor-made for me. 😉 Thank you so much, Karen! xx

  2. I love that first one, I’ve been a bit anxious myself recently and it really does affect my creativity. Thanks for the insights!

  3. I’ve been on an Einstein kick for a few weeks now and I just pulled this quote right off the first page of my Google search results:

    “The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is at all comprehensible.” ~Albert Einstein

    Like I said, his life’s been on my mind for a while, Karen. He was a genius!

    • An Einstein kick is never wrong, Jack.

      And I really love this Einstein quote.

      Considering his achievements, his biography – I fully agree that he was a genius.

  4. Great quotes, dear Karen! 🙂 Oh, and Rose Kennedy was born on the same day as Prince George and our human (July 22)… 😉 Have a PAWSOME week! 🙂 xoxo Roxy & Tigerlino ❤

    • Thank you very much, dearest Roxy & Tigerlino! 🙂
      July 22 is a very important date, it seems.
      Have a pawsome and purrfect week! 🙂
