Every author, however modest,
keeps a most outrageous vanity
chained like a madman
in the padded cell of his breast.

~Logan Pearsall Smith~ (1865-1946)

Once again you made me smile Janice.. Thank You!

I was browsing the site yesterday and saw Ron's quote from his English professor: "The key to good writing," he would always tell us "is to first believe you have something important to say."

Vanity isnt so far removed from self-belief and I thank God you havent kept your self-belief chained in a cell but have allowed it its freedom so it can happily go about helping others to (re-)gain their own self-belief...

Thank you so very much for the compliment Lifeboat! My self-belief was never very abundant but my fighting spirit always has been. I've experienced being shattered and torn in two with only my originally conceived existance to hang onto... that is when I found within myself my true value and I've not been chained inside or to anyone since! No one is responsible for me regaining what was always mine... but I certainly had help discovering all I am not... and now all I am is quite simply... amplified! ;) I do indeed have a great freedom that seems to be consistantly added to more quickly than I'd have believed possible before I met the honest truth of my soul! huh.... no one should ever say "this or that" shouldn't happen.... because all of my "this and that"... has been vital and invaluable and where I could have turned doubtful, hateful and bitter.... I don't find that within my existance. I have sorrows that will endure my entire life...but I don't hold regrets... I have a harbor of love that dives down through fathoms that would make most gasp and cry out at the potency... and slowly it finds the edge of wave within me and out it comes... and it just is.... just is... me.
