Quote of the Day

Quote of the Week:
"The greatest lessons I learned from my father didn't come from lectures or discipline or even time spent together. What has stuck with me is his example. From watching, I chose whether to be or not to be like him."

Slaying Dragons Week―Day 6

We are nearing the end of "Slaying Dragons Week" in which I am celebrating the release of my book, Slaying Dragons: Quotes, Poetry, & a few Short Stories for Every Day of the Year. Every day this past week I have shared a quote from the book as well as a bit of trivia regarding the making of it. Here is the quote for today:

             "Love by the sweat of thy brow.
Not through whispered words of hollow sound or lofty dreams ne’er substance bound that more than oft do run aground.  Nay, love with mighty, blistered hands that turn the soil and carve the land.  A bearer of toil and golden band.
Be strong!  A founder of the feast!
Protective knight who slays the beast!
For promises and vows aloud are naught but wispy veneer shroud like cobwebs, frail, the airy words and wooing fail.  So work, my darling.  Toil as proof.  Thy loyal heart be drained of youth and yet beat on, incessant sound.  Both feet take root within the ground, and service be thy kingly crown.
Love by the sweat of thy brow.”



Did you know that I included more short stories in Slaying Dragons than in its predecessor, Making Wishes?  Both books have something to read and ponder for every day of the year, mostly original quotes and poetry; however, I thought it a fun idea to also include the occasional short story.  For your reading pleasure today, visit the following link and read one short story from Slaying Dragons:
I hope you enjoy Raccoon's Story!
