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!
