Thoughts from Some Great Thinkers
Anita Sharpe on Creativity

Worthwhile friend and supporter Lee Wilder has just returned from the North Carolina Festival of the Book with a notebook full of insights about creativitiy and life from such writers as Pat Conroy and Kaye Gibbons. Here are a few highlights she emailed to us:
 
Allan Gurganus: "Ethics are still the president of my sovereign nation."
 
Ann Patchett:  "Imagination is a muscle."
 
Pat Conroy : "If I could get all of you to tell the truth, there is a novel in each of you."
 
Kaye Gibbons: "The literary life costs you nothing -- it is about watching, listening and being alert."

* "Get rid of people who do not wish you well."

* "Fiction is not an escape but a hazardous drop into reality"
