Get inspired by the greats, here on Figment.
Last one> YES
I just finished reading that book and I am literally speechless.
YES! That was my response, too. And DFTBA! Someone buy me a puppy-sized elephant!
I wish I had the this gif right now
What do you mean John Green? Your book? A Book? The book? The bible? Just like you. Resisting simplicity.
*click click* whoosh! DFTBA!
YES INDEED… It seems that way to me with EVERY Kurt Vonnegut work I’ve ever read. Also, Fahrenheit 451. A good book makes one feel that way.
The last quote by John Green, that is SO true! Yes!
Am I the only one who saved several of these pictures on my computer? *blushes*
Are you crazy?! I saved them ALL to my computer! The one about dragons is my new desktop!
I saved them all and the one about going after inspiration with a club is now my wallpaper.
I saved them ALL to my computer.
No way! Me Too!
How do I save them on an iPod?
Save them to your computer, find the USB cable that connects your iPod to your computer, and connect them. Click and drag to highlight the pictures you want, or use CTRL+click to select the ones you want. Right click and click “Copy.” Navigate to the folder you want the pictures in on your iPod, right click inside of it, and select “Paste.” Done. Disconnect the two and look your new pictures!
Or if it’s an iPod touch you could find this site on the browser, touch and hold each picture, and choose the saving option.
LOL. Nah, they’re splattered all over my desktop at the moment…
I PINNED THEM ALL ON PINTEREST. YOU JELLY?
Nah bro, I’m Nutella!!!
*grins* It´s good to know I´m not the only one
Who wouldn’t shove them up on their desk top?! THEY’RE AWESOME!!!!!
omg! i did too. ur not alone.
The Jack London quote is my Laptop’s wallpaper!
I love all of these!!! My favorite quote is not one here but is by Mark Twain, “Those who won’t read have no advantage over those who can’t.”
That´s awesome! And so true!
My favorite on was
“There are three rules to writing
Unfortunatly nobody knows what they are.”
I know! Haha
I am in love with figment right now. They should do this more often! Especially love the one about dragons by g.K. Chesterton.
Yesyesyesyesyes. Figment, you should add more of these!
Ikr! It’s so inspiring.
seriously , why isn’t there more ? why ? why not ?
Okay. I’m going to go tweet all of these.
Amazing! I just loved all of them.
These rendered me speechless.
Yeah, that is NOT easy to achieve.
Most of them are so true; My favorite one is the one about dragons
These are lovely! Thanks so much for posting them.
This looks like the work of pic monkey!
Whoo! Jack London!
Will these be updated regularly?? I’d love to have more of these!!
I need more of these!! *mind blown*
These are my new desktop images!
the newer ones (at the top) have lots of typos…it kind of detracts from the message
otherwise, these are absolutely beautiful and touching and i LOVE LOVE LOVE them to death
I just noticed that…
Yes! You MUST keep updating it!
I love the one by C.S. Lewis! It’s amazing!
The last one! DFTBA!!!
So awesome and true! I cannot even contain myself!
The one about th 3 rules was funny.
I felt wiser after reading these.
I love the one about the dragon!
I love all of these so much!! I wish they were on tumblr so I could “heart” them!!!!
Thanks for the inspirational quotations!
The Maargaret Atwood one moved me.
Second to last…. That, my friend, in the shadow, is not a club, but a bat. Loved all these quotes
That bat can be whatever it wants to be. *over dramatically* Leave it alone!
I LOVE ALL OF THESE
All of these are so, so true.
I saw a few of these on Facebook. But my absolute favorite has to be “there is nothing to writing all you do is sit down at a type writer and bleed.” it probably would have been the dragon one if I hadn’t already seen it.
I agreed with all of these!
OMG these quotes are so inspiring. Thank you guys:)
My favorite is the one about the moonlight glinting on broken glass…pure poetry.
I love these! It’s good to know I’m finally not alone in the world of reading and writing.
I am a quote fanatic. I collect quotes, and then make them into art for my room. I’m going crazy with all these inspiring words!
That amazing moment when you realize that John Green was tossed onto the Greats pile. *points to banner ad* Guys. Guys. Also,
Wow!!! Those are awesome quotes!! (:
(I’m the kind of person who likes words the same way other people like air.)
*GASP* I CAN’T BREATHE….. *slowly dies….*
All of these quotes are great in there own way. It always amazes me that by reading a few quotes from great writers past and present it lifts my spirit and sends me to my laptop to write.
These inspirational human beings make me weep with joy. They feel like me. They felt like me. These legends, these heroes, these doyens of literature…. how wonderful to have them speak to me like this. I feel them prodding me on the back, shoving a sharpened pencil in my hand, grabbing my cigarette and throwing it aside and spitting out the dambed, beautiful words: “Write woman! Write! Don’t get it right – just get it written!!”
I love these things… they are so encouraging!!! and they help me to keep going.
this actually made me cry with joy ^^
I know. I have truly found my people.
Last one is how I feel about his[John Green] book Paper Towns
I noticed you’ve forgotten two of the greatest philosophers and writers ever to have lived.
A. A. Milne and Dr. Seuss. So let me include them for you.
“Ideas may drift into other minds, but they do not drift my way. I have to go and fetch them. I know no work manual or mental to equal the appalling heart-breaking anguish of fetching an idea from nowhere.”
~ A. A. Milne.
“Writing simply means no dependent clauses, no dangling things, no flashbacks, and keeping the subject near the predicate. We throw in as many fresh words we can get away with. Simple, short sentences don’t always work. You have to do tricks with pacing, alternate long sentences with short, to keep it vital and alive…. Virtually every page is a cliffhanger–you’ve got to force them to turn it.”
~ Dr. Seuss.
Keep the magic alive, Loves. <3
The A.A. Milne one is soo applicable; not only in writing, but in writing scripts for my Advanced Drama class. I suck at brainstorming ideas.
THis made ME happy
THIS motivates me. awesome stuff
PURE AWESOME!!! Some of these are just revised from real quotes.
LOVE THESE!!! I showed them to my favorite Literature teacher and she loved them!! So inspiring!!
It’d be awesome if we could pin these.
“If there’s a book you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” is a Toni Morrison quote, not Maya Angelou.
Oh my gosh I am completely inspired now. Some of these are going on my wall so whenever i feel discouraged I can look up and there they will be.
I have some more quotes
“Shoot for the moon. Even when you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
“When asked, ‘How do you write?’ I invariably answer, ‘One word at a time.’
My favourite is the last one. I feel that way all the time, and im sad that not many people in my family like to read as much as me, so they’ll never know what an amazing book I just read. My own descriptions of books are never actually worthy compared to what reading them feels like.
YES!!! I force my friends–absolutely force them–to read a book, and rarely are they disappointed. But they never fail to distrust my judgment the next time. Just trust me! The books I beg you to read are AMAZING!
All the feels! Plus hey, new backgrounds for my computer <3
We need more! I’ve found nearly all of my favorite quotes here, and I check this every time I go on Figment! I want more!!!
