15 Inspirational Quotes About Writing

15 Inspirational Quotes About Writing
“I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which ‘Escape’ is now so often used.

Tolkien
