“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should’ve behaved better.”–Anne Lamott

“I had to learn that muses can be fired or dismissed but writers either do or don’t write, without permission or encouragement from anyone. I did begin.” –Anne Roiphe
