Today is the Feast of St. Francis de Sales, the patron saint of writers. He spent his short life writing books and numerous pamphlets emphasizing that we are all called to holiness, to become saints. Below are some of his favorite quotes that help me to write:
Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.
Have patience to walk with short steps until you have wings to fly.
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew.
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
St. Francis, pray for us.
