Inspirational Quotes Series: Pat Conroy

“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.”

Pat Conroy


I’ve chosen to feature three quotes because I couldn’t chose just one!

“I wanted to become the seeker, the aroused and passionate explorer, and it was better to go at it knowing nothing at all, always choosing the unmarked bottle, always choosing your own unproven method, armed with nothing but faith and a belief in astonishment.”

“A story untold could be the one that kills you.”

Author of such seminal novels like The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini, each which became iconic Oscar-nominated films. Conroy is a staunch advocate of the “military brat cultural identity and awareness movement”.


I have a DNC/Charlotte/RNC wrap-up to finish and was away from the computer for a few days to actually meet people, face-to-face. I had a lot of fun, unique and interesting experiences to share.
