Maria Shriver

Literary Birthday – 6 November – Maria Shriver

Happy Birthday, Maria Shriver, born 6 November 1955.

Five Quotes

  1. I stressed out trying to figure out what I could say. I ate liquorice. I stressed some more. I ate Dots. I stressed out even more-and wiped out a bag of Swedish Fish. And then I wrote.
  2. We all obsess about what we are doing and accomplishing. What if we let it go and simply made the way we live our lives our accomplishment?
  3. I don’t believe in gutter politics. I don’t believe in gutter journalism.
  4. Poetry has always been made to seem kind of cultish. But the truth is, everybody really loves it! It’s much more mainstream than anyone thought.
  5. It’s always inspiring to me to meet people who feel that they can make a difference in the world. That’s their motive, that’s their passion… I think that’s what makes your life meaningful, that’s what fills your own heart and that’s what gives you purpose.

Maria Shriver is an American journalist and author of six best-selling books.
