Onward! Upward! Inspirational quotes for writers say precisely that.  

Welcome to our Rogue's Gallery, Jeri.  Your Mom thought you would enjoy these inspirational quotes.  She says you are a vibrant, lively person, bursting with personality!  Judging by your photo, I believe that.

She also tells me you are a writer (not a "future writer", but a "writer" right now).  Let me know when I can post some of your quotes here for other writers!

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

It's always too early to quit.
Norman Vincent Peale

An inspirational quote for writers, and for all of us:

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.
Malcolm Forbes

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
Calvin Coolidge

This is one of my favorite inspirational quotes for writers, although it applies to artists of all ilk as well:

Far away in the sunshine are my highest inspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they may lead.
Lousia May Alcott

An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one.
Charles Horton Cooley

This is another favorite inspirational quote for writers:

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken bird that cannot fly.
Langston Hughes

If you can imagine it,
You can achieve it.
If you can dream it,
You can become it.
William Arthur Ward

Great deeds are usually wrought at great risks.

Sometimes when I consider what tremendous
consequences come from little things...
I am tempted to think...
There are no little things.
Bruce Barton

Writing has made me rich--not in money but in a couple hundred characters out there, whose pursuits and anguish and triumphs I've shared. I am unspeakably grateful at the life I have come to lead.
Wright Morris 

Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.
Graham Greene

If you would not be forgotten, 
as soon as you are dead & rotten, 
either write things worth reading, 
or do things worth the writing.
Benjamin Franklin

The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas.
Linus Pauling

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.
Charles Du Bois

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.
Dale Carnegie

Don't be afraid to give up the good
 to go for the great.
Kenny Rogers

Hitch your wagon to a star.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

These inspirational quotes for writers touch the creative thread in all of us.  How many of us have hitched our wagon to a star -- and followed that star?  Most of us, I hope.
