Todays Quotes
Birthday Person Anne Rice

I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.
Anne Rice  
Obsession led me to write. It's been that way with every book I've ever written. I become completely consumed by a theme, by characters, by a desire to meet a challenge.
Anne Rice

That process by which you become a writer is a pretty lonely one. We don't have a group apprenticeship like a violinist might training for an orchestra.
Anne Rice

The thing should have plot and character, beginning, middle and end. Arouse pity and then have a catharsis. Those were the best principles I was ever taught.
Anne Rice

To write something, you have to risk making a fool of yourself.
Anne Rice

You reach deep down and bring up what feels absolutely authentic to you as you move along with the book, but you don't know everything about it. You can't.
Anne Rice

A preacher said, "Anyone with special needs who wants to be prayed for, 

 please come forward to the front by the altar." 


 With that, Leroy got in line, and when it was his turn, the Preacher 

 asked, "Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?" 


 Leroy replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing." 


 The preacher put one finger of one hand in Leroy's ear, placed his other 

 hand on top of Leroy's head, and then prayed and prayed and prayed. He prayed 

 a "blue streak" for Leroy, and the whole congregation joined in with great 



 After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and 

 asked, "Leroy, how is your hearing now?" 


 Leroy answered, "I don't know. It ain't 'til Thursday."
