Technically, the quote is by Will Durant, and he was summarizing/paraphrasing Aristotle, who was the teacher of Alexander the Great.
I love this quote, and I plan on using as inspiration for #NaNoWriMo. My goal this time around isn't necessarily to complete a novel, per se, but to retrain my writing habits. There was a time in my life where I wrote nearly every single day, and nowadays it seems I let life take me away from my favorite pastime. I always saw myself writing fiction professionally, but you can't just wait around to see if that ever happens. Life isn't going to align itself perfectly for the optimal time, or create the most inspiring environment for you. You have to make it happen. #quote #inspiration #writing #philosophy #history #aristotle
