Lighthouses and Stories Guide Us Through Darkness

I came across this quote many years back which speaks to the seeming futility of writing. And how wrong we are when we have that opinion. Whenever I am especially down about some aspect of writing, or doubting myself, I think of this quoteLighthouses are like stories, they guide us through the dark.....

I think it captures a philosophical truth about perseverance, and why you should never quit.  Mainly, because it’s not about you.  It’s about the words themselves. It’s about the story.We have to remember that.

Here it is:

“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for a boat to save; they just stand there shining.”  –Anne Lamott
