Every writer has that one favorite quote they come back to in times of need. Whether they are having an off day, they have no motivation, or want an encouraging word from someone who has been there. There are so many who have come before and many that have provided encouraging words and phrases (even if they didn’t realize it at the time) to help those who come after (or alongside them).
Here are some of my favorites:

Use whatever you can to make a good story great. Even things from personal experience. You never know, books may hide an authors deepest secrets in the form of a journey, experience, or thought. Don’t judge! Author’s are providing a unique story for your entertainment.
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart ~ William Wordsworth
Heart is where most of your thoughts and ideas come from, right. You write from your heart, use it well.
Writers see the world differently. Every voice we hear, every face we see, every hand we touch could become story fabric. ~ Buffy Andrews
Writers use everything and anything at their disposal. We are a unique type.
A good story makes you want to live in the story. A great book gives you no choice. ~ Author Unknown
