Hello everyone :)

My name is Tamara and I'm relatively new to FictionPress, but I'm excited to try and write new stories and short tidbits in order to practice writing and allow my creative juices to flow.

I'm currently working on a few random ideas and I hope that you all enjoy my writings...

I don't quite know what else to say, other than feel free to send me a pm or review- they're encouraging, and I enjoy constructive criticism. Any comments are always welcome, though flames are somewhat upsetting...(If you truly feel that I deserve one, though, please do let me know!)

I shall leave you with some of my favorite quotes.

Be great in act, as you have been in thought.
-William Shakespeare

I am not bound to please thee with my answers.
-William Shakespeare

We know what we are, but not what we may be.
-William Shakespeare

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
-Albert Einstein

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
-Albert Einstein

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.
-Albert Einstein

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
-Albert Einstein

Happiness depends upon ourselves.

Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.
-Sir Winston Churchill

To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.
-Sir Winston Churchill

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
-Sir Winston Churchill

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
-Mark Twain

We live in an age when unnecessary things are our only necessities.
-Oscar Wilde

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
-Mahatma Gandhi

Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress.
-Mahatma Gandhi

You must be the change you want to see in the world.
-Mahatma Gandhi

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
-Mahatma Gandhi

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
-Friedrich Nietzsche

Out of life's school of war: What does not destroy me, makes me stronger.
-Friedrich Nietzsche

Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
-Henry David Thoreau

Men have become the tools of their tools.
-Henry David Thoreau

My friend is one... who take me for what I am.
-Henry David Thoreau

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
-Henry David Thoreau

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
-Benjamin Franklin

You may delay, but time will not.
-Benjamin Franklin

Wish not so much to live long as to live well.
-Benjamin Franklin

United we stand, divided we fall.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Appearances often are deceiving.

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."
-George Carlin

Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth.
-Benjamin Disraeli

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower

A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.
-Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
-Robert Frost

To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to do.
-Kahlil Gibran

Seize the day, put no trust in the morrow!
Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero.

Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase.
-Martin Luther King Jr.

I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
