Quotes by Author G D Grace (May 2011)

The further you get from caring what people think…the closer you get to totally loving who you are. Time waits for no one…how many steps have you taken today?

Stepping into your own, often times, means standing on your own, making decisions that will satisfy your own ambitions. At some point you have to believe in your own abilities and trust in yourself, because at the final curtain call you want to be able to say I did live my life to the fullest…GD

Each time I visit this quaint, quiet, non-congested city in this inland valley, it gets harder to readjust when I return to the crammed, over-populated Bay Area city where I work to make a living. But we gotta make it do what it do y’all..

Look! No, there. Can’t you see it? Try harder. Focus. Darkness hasn’t the power to keep light from seeping through… we just need to know where to look. (wink) GD

With each passing day, I embrace change & growth by being productive and progressive in my living…distancing myself from counter-productive mind-sets that our locked into a stagnated exisistence. Evolution flourishes when the mind is open to receive..

Standing at the cusp of success, know that there are always those prepared to say something, who wait in anticipation, believing you will fail, so concentrate on never missing a step, but if you should, climb 2 more the next time…

The life of a literary expressionist is filled with a creative aura that is often times misunderstood & under-rated, but Langston, Toni, Terry, James Earl, E. Lynn, James B., Maya and countless others have paved the way for us…and their contributions are all the inspiration I need…

One, two…for the sky so blue…three, four…for the breeze too lovely to ignore…five, six…for the day’s enchanting lift…seven, & eight…for this peaceful mental state… What are you doing, GD? Just counting my blessings, that’s all…

You know something that strikes me as odd? How the ones who may share your bloodline, or those supposedly close to you ,can rally around someone else’s creative ventures, but barely even acknowledge your successes.
It’s all good though, because they cannot even fathom the bright future that’s in store for me. Strive without yielding… GD

Some of the more frustrating events in life will humble you and force you to your knees, but you must remind yourself that in the long run you’ll be so much better. Afterwards you’ll have more character and confidence than you ever dreamed possible.

Passion…the olive branch presented to me in life which reminds me that after the 40 days & 40 nights of rain there was, eventually, dry land. During the storm fear & uncertainty riddles the core of our faith, but when we look upward and see that stellar rainbow….we always remember “The Promise” GD

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event.

Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
