Writing and Success

by Joy Jones

Yes, yes yes, we want success - money, recognition or maybe just self-satisfaction. Those writers who have already achieved accolades, and attained fame and fortune - what do they have to say about the experience? Read below for comments by successful writers about success:

"Success is a finished book, a stack of pages each of which is filled with words. If you reach that point, you have won a victory over yourself no less impressive than sailing single-handed around the world." -- Tom Clancy

"The one thing I pray for now is to stay grounded, to know that Im just a vessel." -- E. Lynn Harris

"There must be more to life than having everything."
   --
Maurice Sendak

"The return from your work must be the satisfaction which that work brings you and the worlds need of that work."
   --
W. E. B. Dubois

"Living in balance and purity is the highest good for you and the earth." -- Deepak Chopra

"Its a very short trip. While alive, live!" -- Malcolm Forbes
