A house without books is like a room without windows.
— Horace Mann

We all start out with the same alphabet. We are all unique. Talent is not the most important thing --- discipline and dedication are. Craft can be learned but desire and longing are innate. Despite the demands of school and just being young, try to write SOMETHING every day --- a description, a captured emotion, a simile, a metaphor. Read, for crying out loud! A writer must read the way a ball player must go to the ballfield every day to practice. Everything is possible in this world of ours--- and so's publication.
Robert Cormier similes quote

A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
— Steve Martin

He's like a drug for you, Bella.
— Stephenie Meyer

A book without words is like love without a kiss; it's empty.
— similes quotation by Andrew Wolfe
