I apologize for the long absence in posting on this blog. I have felt less inspired lately, perhaps a case of writer’s block. To kick-start myself, and this blog, I am going to share with you today two great quotes from Edgar Allan Poe. The first reminds us all to slow down and live life, while the second is more a personal favorite about Literature.
“I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active – not more happy – nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. “
“Depend upon it, after all, Literature is the most noble of professions. In fact, it is about the only one fit for a man. For my own part, there is no seducing me from the path.”
-Edgar Allan Poe
Coming in the next few days, I have an exciting announcement about an old story of mine that will soon be published for all the world to see, and some great news on Dead Skin Dave, the Pirate.
