Hey Everyone,

Its a big, wide, wonderful world & how wonderful to have a place like @Wattpad to share our words and literary wares.


The three best pieces of advice, I ever received:

1). MEMORIZE Shakespeare's: "Sweet are the uses of adversity which like the toad ugly & venomous wears yet a precious jewel in its crown, & this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stone, & good in every thing. I would not change it."
From his play: As You Like It.

2). A rubber scraper is worth its weight in gold.

3). Fannie Flagg : "Don't give up before the miracle happens."

4). "Finish the Book!" Stephen King

5). S.Carolina Motto and a new favorite quote: While I breathe, I hope;
There's more: "While I hope I love;"
"While I love, I live."

In Latin 'tis: 'Dum spiro, spero; dum spero, amo; dum amo, vivo."
