Turning a phrase

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Long ago, I started a phrase and quote journal. Boy, did it help when I was writing my stories. Here are a few phrases I like.


“History is in us. Our history lives in us.” The Guest Book by Sarah Blake

“Heroes are the people who are bigger than their times. Most of us are not. History is sometimes made by heroes, but it is a also always made by us. We, the people, who stumble around, who help the heroes out of loyalty, stubbornness, faith or fear.” – The Guest Book

“Life gives you two choices. Regret the past or change the present.” – When we were young” by Karen Kingsbury

“When do promises come with expiration dates?” The Revolving Heart by Chuck Hugely

“Humans tend to build walls when they should be opening doors.” Mr. Penumbra”‘s Bookstore by Robin Sloan

“Fingers of thought are raking the space behind the cushions, looking for loose ideas, finding none.”. Mr. Penumbria’s 24 Hour Bookstore” Robin Sloan

“If one has a book, Mr. Boone, one is never alone. They will talk to you when you want to listen, and when you tire of what they are saying, you just close the book. It will be waiting for you when you come back to it.” “The Cherokee Trail” Louis L’Amour
