Literary Thoughts for a Brand New Year

“The horizon leans forward, offering you space to place new steps of change.” -- Maya Angelou
It’s a brand new year. And who better to help us shape and inspire the year that will be than our favorite authors?
“I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.” -- Anaïs Nin
Though, as The Huffington Post reminds us:
Great writers don’t always offer the words of undiluted inspiration we’d like; their keen insight and penchant for honesty about the human condition produces observations about our weakness, our sins or about how painful history can shadow our futures (“The past is never dead. It's not even past,” as William Faulkner wrote).
HuffPo collects “15 galvanizing passages from your favorite authors” here.
