Random Quotes for Writers

I'm staring down a deadline or two and enduring a mild case of blogger's block. It's like writer's block, only it involves not being able to come up with a decent thing to post about.
So, I decided to pull my copy of Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul off my bookshelf and flip through it, praying for inspiration. What I found were a lot of good quotes. Here are a few of my favorites:
