Words of Encouragement Never Get Old

I was reading a blog that has become one of my favorites on writing and wanted to share:

Never give up on your dreams by Cristian Mihai


One of my favorite quotes goes like this: ”Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”

Ambrose Redmon said that.

Fear is an impulse, or like the tattoo on my arm says, “Fear is the mind killer.” Frank Herbert said that. In Dune. So you can’t stop being afraid, but you can fight fear, you can control it.
I don’t think I ever told you how I became a writer. Or if I did, it was long ago.

When I was a kid, I didn’t really like to read or write. Of course, I made up stories. My father had brought me this Atlas of the World, and I found about this city in the US called Seattle. And I thought, “What a great name.” I didn’t know how it should be pronounced, so I pronounced it seetle or something like that.

And thank you to all of you who responded to my question in the last post. I did not expect encouragement, but I thank you very much for it!


  1. This is an amazing coincidence Frenz! A friend of mine posted that very picture on FB yesterday. Sadly there was no reference to Cristian Mahai so it was wonderful to find this on your blog! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thank you so for sharing. I have been there, marveled at this human’s insight, and left a lengthy comment. :D

    His cause on Indiegogo is also worthy. It is hard to be without the single tool you need. I hope he reaches his goal soon.
