Is not the poet bound to write his own biography? Is there any other work for him but a good journal? – Henry David Thoreau

with feathers, flowers, photographs, and words - without locks, open on my shelves. -Terry Tempest Williams

I keep a quotes journal - of every sentence that I've wanted to remember from my reading of the past 30 years. -Richard Powers

Writing the little daily journal is fun. I have set my usual two pages of writing as the day's work. I don't know if I can keep this up from the beginning, but I will try. – John Steinbeck

The nicest part is being able to write down all my thoughts and feelings; otherwise, I might suffocate. – Anne Frank

My journal is off limits to anyone but me ... I can't wrestle on paper if I fear what someone else might think of my wrestling. – Nicole Johnson
