Night Buddies - Adventures After Lights Out

Drawing Inspiration: Why Favorite Quotes Are Important for Authors

An author’s favorite writers can often say quite a bit about where they draw inspiration for their own novels from. For instance, the Night Buddies books are full of imaginative descriptions and witty dialogue, which could be why one of Ol’ Sands’ favorite quotes comes from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: “‘And what is the use of a book’ thought Alice, ‘without pictures or conversation?’”

“A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.” Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator

“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” Roald Dahl

“He wrapped himself in quotations – as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors.” Rudyard Kipling, Many Inventions

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.” Mark Twain
