The letter F has some juicy words I like to savor in my mouth. Forbidden is a word that calls forth the rebellious nature in me. Maybe you too? Just add the word to the object deemed undesirable and I would know doubt want it even more. Ah, would you pass me the triple dark chocolate while you’re here.

Here are some serious F words in my  favorites quotes:

 
“Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart; confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.”
Lloyd Alexander

 
Fiction is the truth inside the lie.”
Stephen King

 
“Write what should not be forgotten.”
Isabel Allende

 
“Writers fish for the right words like fishermen fish for, um, whatever those aquatic creatures with fins and gills are called. 
”
Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I’ve ever written, and it still sucks

 
“This fellow is wise enough to play the fool;
And to do that well craves a kind of wit:
He must observe their mood on whom he jests,
The quality of persons, and the time,
And, like the haggard, check at every feather
That comes before his eye. This is a practise
As full of labour as a wise man’s art
For folly that he wisely shows is fit;
But wise men, folly-fall’n, quite taint their wit.”
William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

 

Thanks to the folks who brought us the A to Z challenge.

  2. If I hadn’t already eaten too much chocolate today, I would be totally up for doing what that chick is doing in that picture! hehe. Hmm, hang on a sec… maybe I am ready to give it a try after all!

  3. My favorite?

    “Write what should not be forgotten.”
    ― Isabel Allende

    I believe that wholeheartedly! And I agree — just adding the word “forbidden” makes something so much more desirable. 🙂

  8. Inspiring collection of quotes!

    At first glance, I thought that lady was gnawing on a big computer keyboard – not chocolate. Seemed to be quite a fitting visual, though!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  13. Something about being forbidden does make it so much sweeter- doesn’t it?

  14. The word forbidden awakes the bad boy or bad girl in all of us. Doing something we know is denied us gives us a thrill and challenges us to overcome that limitation.
