King's Speech: V is for VIEW

Regular readers of The Shellshank Redemption know how much I enjoy a good quote (see Motivational Mondays) and that I’m a huge fan of Stephen King (see the King of All Days Part I and Part II.) So, for the 2013 A-Z Challenge, I decided to combine the two, using some of my favorite King quotes about reading, writing and life in general. Enjoy!


And poets, in my VIEW, and I think the view of most people, 
do speak God’s language – it’s better, it’s finer, 
it’s language on a higher plane 
than ordinary people speak in their daily lives. 
(Stephen King)


And extremely appropriate for National Poetry Month.


  1. Very good post. Everyone sees things at a different view. I like yours.

  2. Alex - I tried my hand at poetry when I was younger but I just don't have the knack for it. I so wish I did!

  3. Yes! The view of the world is most definitely elevated through poetry :)

  4. Kate - it's such a different way of seeing things, isn't it?

    Jai - I'm with you on that.

  5. I totally forgot this was National Poetry Month. What a perfect tie-in.

  6. I am awed by people who can produce good poetry. I sure can't.

  7. Oh yes, it's Nat'l Poetry Month! I love reading a well-written poem. Good poetry is like icing with sprinkles on a cookie.

  8. Shannon - I know the feeling!

    Cynthia - I really want to start reading more poetry...and now I want a cookie, too. :)

  9. I love poetry, it just sings.And I am enjoying your blog.

  10. Suz - I love the idea of poetry "singing." And I'm glad you're enjoying TSR. :)

  11. Linda - thank you! Hope your A-Z Challenge continues to go well.
