In the beginning…
I have something to say. I believe it can add value to your life.
Whether it is in my books, blog posts or articles, I write in order to create something that will enhance the quality of your life.
I believe that words have the power to transform the human spirit. I believe that ideas are made more valuable when shared. I believe that knowledge is empowering. I believe that I have the obligation to do whatever I can to uplift my fellow humans. My writing reflects that belief.
That is why I write what I write. I am compelled to empower, enlighten and enrich the lives of my fellow travelers.
“My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel;
and it is, before all, to make you see.” ~ Joseph Conrad
“I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.”
~ Emily Dickinson
“As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.”
~ Patrick Rothfuss
“Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
“Many of the features we have taken for granted in thought and expression in literature, philosophy and science, and even in oral discourse among literates, are not directly native to human existence as such but have come into being because of the resources which the technology of writing makes available to human consciousness.” ~ Walter Ong
“A man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.” ~ Mark Twain
