The Signatures Of Some Of Our Favorite Authors Now & Then

J. K. Rowling's Signature

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.” ~ J.K. Rowling

“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.” ~ J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

“I stopped believing there was a power of good and a power of evil that were outside us. And I came to believe that good and evil are names for what people do, not for what they are.” ~ Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass

“Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.“ ~ Ernest Hemingway

“Be careful of love. It'll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong.” ~ Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

“Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.“ ~ Ray Bradbury

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.” ~ George R. R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora
