Creative Quotations from . . .
Madeleine L'Engle
(1918-2007) born on
Nov 28
US novelist. She won the 1963 Newberry award for "A Wrinkle in Time."
I love my mother, not as a prisoner of atherosclerosis, but as a person; and I must love her enough to accept her as she is, now, for as long as this dwindling may take.

Artistic temperament . . . sometimes seems a battleground, a dark angel of destruction and a bright angel of creativity wrestling.
A book comes and says, "Write me." My job is to try to serve it to the best of my ability, which is never good enough, but all I can do is listen to it, do what it tells me and collaborate.
A life lived in chaos is an impossibility for the artist. No matter how unstructured may seem the painter's garret in Paris or the poet's pad in Greenwich Village, the artist must have some kind of order or he will produce a very small body of work.
In the evening of life we shall be judged on love, and not one of us is going to come off very well, and were it not for my absolute faith in the loving forgiveness of my Lord I could not call on him to come.
