"Write what will stop your breath if you don't write."-  Grace Paley
"So why does our writing matter?  Because of the spirit, I say.  Because of the heart.  Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation.  They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life:  They feed the soul."- Anne Lamott

I was a physician long before I was a writer. Then I came to understand that words are often more healing than medication. The rational discipline of medicine can ground me, but it's writing that allows me to soar.  -- Rosalind Kaplan, MD
