The belief...

This is a really good quote from Anne Lamott's book called Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. Anne Lamott is a novelist and a non-fictional writer. It's about what's inside us. It's what we think that have made our thoughts come true. It's not how strong your body is but it's more into how big your mind is and how deep your heart is. That's what makes all things possible...

"You are lucky to be one of those people who wishes to build sand castles with words, who is willing to create a place where your imagination can wander. We build this place with the sand of memories; these castles are our memories and inventiveness made tangible. So part of us believes that when the tide starts coming in, we won't really have lost anything, because actually only a symbol of it was there in the sand. Another part of us thinks we'll figure out a way to divert the ocean. This is what separates artists from ordinary people: the belief, deep in our hearts, that if we build our castles well enough, somehow the ocean won't wash them away. I think this is a wonderful kind of person to be."
