Thoughts for Thursday (3) and RMQ!


Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quote I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments.

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is "writing fantasy."

All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.
                                                                                                                    --Carl Jung

Literature for me isn't a workaday job, but something which involves desires, dreams and fantasy.

                                                                                                                     --Antonia Tabucci

What do you think about these quotes? Which one do you like better? How do you apply it to your own writing? Do you have any interesting quotes about writing fantasy?

I don't usually do RMQ on Thursdays, but I haven't done ANY this week! (Sorry, it's been kind of crazy), so here it is! :D

The last RMQ I did was last Wednesday. It's okay if no one remembers, because no one guessed it anyway. The quote was "There are no happy endings, because nothing ends."  That was said by Schmendrick the Magician in the timeless cartoon, The Last Unicorn. Our geeky magician was voiced by Alan Arkin.

Now for today's RMQ. Ready?

"What's he do? Nibble your bum?"

Who said it? What film, what character, what actor? Three possible points! Any guesses? 


  1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail!!!!!

    1. Very good! You get the point for the film! Any thoughts on the character/actor? :D

  2. Haha, love these quotes. This is a cool meme. Thanks for sharing.

    1. No problem! Thanks for stopping by Jennifer! :D
