Intro and help with resources

Hi all I'm Jennifer.


I left my job a few months back to work full time on writing my new book which is about the journey into the heart. I decided after 7-8 years of writing for someone else it was time to do something for myself. I found this forum whilst googling for places for writing advice/communities to hopefully its a good place to start. The book is going well but one thing I am struggling with is a good central resource for spiritual quotes. I looked on things like BrainyQuote and QuoteGarden but they are not very spiritually focussed. I've found the odd page (e.g. Elephant Journal) but wondered if anyone knew of a more central place? Ideally ones by spiritual leaders etc.


Anyway thanks for your help and nice to meet you!

Re: Intro and help with resources

Copyright issues aside, I would look at actual books of quotations, for example:

  • Bartlett's
  • Oxford


Depending on your goals, what you select is more important that what the editors of Bartlett's found.  When you read books, mark things that stand out.  A cheat would be to get the books on Kindle, where, often, you find that a gazillion other readers have already highlighted interesting quotes.
