Lovely Lines

Standard

My goal this month was to write every day for 15 minutes.  It’s not really working for me- 15 minutes isn’t enough to ‘get in the groove.’  Instead, I’m going to aim to write weekly for at least 90 minutes.

I’ve been thinking about writing a lot, and thinking about the writing that has moved me in some way over the years.  Here are a few lines that I think are just fantastic:

“Spreading shadows, setting sun

crickets, curtains, day is done

A fire takes away the chill

all the world can hold quite still.”

-Liz Garton Scanlon from All the World

“When a fox is in the bottle where the tweetle beetles battle with their paddles in a puddle on a noodle-eating poodle, THIS is what they call a tweetle beetle noodle poodle bottled paddled muddled duddled fuddled wuddled fox in socks, sir!”

-Dr. Seuss from Fox in Socks

And you?  What lines have been especially poignant to you?
