A tip for writers.


Above all things, remember that perseverance is the key that opens the door of success.

Persevere! If you are turned down don't get disheartened; on the contrary, let the rebuff act as a stimulant to further effort.

Many of the most successful writers of our time have been turned down again and again.

For days and months, and even years, some of them have hawked their wares from one literary door to another until they found a purchaser.

 You may be a great writer in embryo, but you will never develop into a fetus, not to speak of full maturity, unless you bring out what is in you.

 Give yourself a chance to grow and seize upon everything that will enlarge the scope of your horizon.

Keep your eyes wide open and there is not a moment of the day in which you will not see something to interest you and in which you may be able to interest others. Learn, too, how to read Nature's book.

There's a lesson in everything—in the stones, the grass, the trees, the babbling brooks and the singing birds. Interpret the lesson for yourself, then teach it to others.

 Always be in earnest in your writing; go about it in a determined kind of way, don't be faint-hearted or backward, be brave, be brave, and evermore be brave.
