A writer’s week on twitter – quotes

The 140 character limit of twitter is well suited to quotes - and there are plenty around to interest writers.  Some people seem quite happy tweeting little else, but for me the best are the rare little gems that people like so much they want to share them. 

Every now and then you come across one that stands out from all the other tweets and makes you think, or smile, or wonder about life. 

I started ‘favouriting’ some that stood out for me and here are my top 10 of the week:
