"If you could rub Tulip out of your past life, would you do it?"

When, as my friend suggested, I stand before Zeus (whether I die naturally, or under sentence of History)I will repeat all this that I have written as my defense.Many people spend their entire lives collecting stamps or old coins, or growing tulips. I am sure that Zius will be merciful toward people who have given themselves entirely to these hobbies, even though they are only amusing and pointless diversions.

You can start writing again at any minute. Let go of all your failures and sit down and write something great. Or write something terrible and feel great about it.

— Natalie Goldberg
