Thoughts for Thursday (3) and RMQ!


Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quote I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments.

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is "writing fantasy."

"I like nonsense. It wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living."

                                                                                                             --Dr. Seuss

"Writing fantasy lets me imagine a great deal more than, say, writing about alligators, and lets me write about places more distant than Florida, but I can tell you things about Florida and alligators, let you make the connection all on your own."                                         --Terry Brooks

What do you think about these quotes? How would you apply them to your own writing? Do you have any quotes about writing or fantasy?

I normally don't do RMQs on Thursday, but it's been a crazy week and I haven't done any yet, so I'm doing one today! :D 

The last RMQ I did was last Wednesday. No one guessed it. The quote was, "Geez, you smoke too?" This is an immortal line from the great Michael J Fox in his best known role: Marty McFly in Back to the Future. :D 

Today's quote: 

"The gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now, and we will never be here again..."

Any guesses? Three possible points. One for the actor, one for the character, one for the film. Good luck! :D


  1. Love the Seuss quote! I completely agree!!! I have no idea on the RMQ but it feels mythological.

    1. You're right--it is! I'll post the answer tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by! :D
