“It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end.”
Ursula K. Le Guin (b. October 21, 1929 – d. January 22, 2018)
“I always wrote. I wrote from when I was 12. That was therapeutic for me in those days. I wrote things to get them out of feeling them, and onto paper. So writing in a way saved me, kept me company. I did the traditional thing with falling in love with words, reading books and underlining lines I liked and words I didn’t know.”
— Carrie Fisher (b. 1956 – d. 2016)
Such a big personality. I am at a loss for words.
“I get melancholy if I don’t [write]. I need the company of people who don’t exist.”
— William Trevor
(Born May 24, 1928 – Died November 21, 2016)
William Trevor was one of my favourite writers, both of short stories and novels. His 2002 novel, The Story of Lucy Gault, has never left me.
I don’t want to write another post dedicated to brilliant talent we have lost.
