“The music went on and on, minute after minute, with astonishing variations, never once repeating itself, almost as though the bird were deliberately showing off its virtuosity.  Sometimes it stopped for a few seconds, spread out and resettled its wings, then swelled its speckled breast and again burst into song.  Winston watched it with a sort of vague reverence.  For whom, for what, was that bird singing?  No mate, no rival was watching it.  What made it sit at the edge of the lonely wood and pour its music into nothingness?” ~ George Orwell, 1984

“One of the few things I know about writing is this:  Spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time.  Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now.  The impulse to save something good for a better place later is the signal to spend it now.  Something more will arise for later, something better.  These things fill from behind, from beneath, like well water.  The impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive.  Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you.” ~ Annie Dillard, American Writer
