    Hey Handsome-

    Self publishing is great and all, but so are editors. Your fortune telling brick bit reads “Call know, as supplies are limited.” Which very well could be intentional. Maybe you’d like the call itself to be knowledgeable.

    I read your comment about Luther, the Reformation, & essentially referring to Poles as being too stupid operate a hammer.

    The irony is that at that time in history, Poland was very much an open society with regards to religious beliefs & thus escaped the Reformation Wars that plagued the rest of Europe. The Unitarian Church for example, owes much of it’s existence to Polish noblemen, who proliferated this very open religion.

    Poland was home to 90% of Europe’s Jewry, and were able to practice their religion without interference, thus the Jewish word for heaven Polin, became synonymous with Poland.

    As a talented young man, I think you should understand, that an ethnic group that survived as a national entity for over 1,000 years is not comprised of stupid people. Considering Poland’s location between Russia & Germany, two aggressive nations.

    Sincerely,

    Jack Jackowski

    Hey Jarod,

    I am writing a dissertation and want to use one of your quotes. The problem is I have not been able to locate the origin of the quote (i.e. book information and page number.) The quote is “Nothing, everything, anything, something If you have nothing, then you have everything, because you have the freedom to do anything, without the fear of losing something.” If you approve, would you be able to provide me with missing information? Thank you so much and have a great, awesome day!!

    Kindly,

    Laura

      Hi Laura!

      haha you might not like the details because the book title alone is this:

      This is the story my great-grandfather told my father, who then told my grandfather, who then told me about how The Mythical Mr. Boo, Charles Manseur Fizzlebush Grissham III, better known as Mr. Fizzlebush, and Orafoura are all in fact me and Dora J. Arod, who sometimes shares my pen, paper, thoughts, mind, body, and soul, because Dora J. Arod is my pseudonym, as he/it incorporates both my first and middle name, and is also a palindrome that can be read forwards or backwards no matter if you are an upright man in the eyes of God or you are upside down in a tank of water wearing purple goggles and grape jelly discussing how best to spread your time between your work, your wife, and the toasted bread being eaten by the man you are talking to who goes by the name of Dendrite McDowell, who is only wearing a towel on his head and has an hourglass obscuring his β€œtime machine”–or the thing that he says can keep him young forever by producing young versions of himself the way I avert disaster in that I ramble and bumble like a bee until I pollinate my way through flowery situations that might otherwise have ended up being more than less than, but not equal to two short parallel lines stacked on top of each other that mathematicians use to balance equations like a tightrope walker running on a wire stretched between two white stretched limos parked on a long cloud that looks like Salt Lake City minus the sodium and Mormons, but with a dash of pepper and Protestants, who may or may not be spiritual descendents of Mr. Maynot, who didn’t come over to America in the Mayflower, but only because he was β€œToo lazy to get off the sofa,” and therefore impacted this continent centuries before the first television was ever thrown out of a speeding vehicle at a man who looked exactly like my great-grandfather, who happens to look exactly like the clone science has yet to allow me to create

    I am using your quotation “Nothing, Everything, Anything, Something: If you have nothing, then you have everything,because you have the freedom to do anything,without the fear of losing something.” What exactly does it mean? Are there claims or themes (words) that I can draw from it. Things that I can relate to personally such as freedom, wisdom, desire, truth. Things such as the world like the real value of possessions???? HELP ME UNDERSTAND !
    By the way, I am a huge fan of all your quotes and I have read a ton of them over the last week.

    Good morning, Mr. Kintz!
    I absolutely love your quotes–perfect for so many life situations.
    I looked for an e-mail address, so forgive me for posting this here.
    What are your permissions rules for using your quotes? I’m writing a book and one of the chapters is titled, “Always Awkward and Directionally Challenged” – your quote about broken compasses and misdirection would be perfect!! I would love to quote you, and give you credit (obviously)…but I’m such a newbie to publishing, and don’t know the rules.
    How’s that for a hello, right?
    Either way, I’m so glad to have found your work. Best wishes!

      Hi Michelle!
      I am glad you found me! Feel free to use any quote of mine you want. I guess there are rules for quoting if it’s an academic paper, but I was never a fan of all that. You know, page number, year of publication, whatever. Just the quote and who said it is good enough for a book. If you do that for anything you quote, no reader will be upset, and the author you are quoting will be thrilled to be thought of and to be thought perfect for inclusion in your work. It is exciting to be publishing a book, so congrats on that! It is a tremendous undertaking, and I am stoked you reached out to me πŸ™‚

    Alas, The Universe pointed vaguely with a grin on its face and a fragrance that names itself like the word serendipity. I was laughing at your review: https://www.amazon.com/Write-like-no-one-reading-ebook/dp/B00S5NS1ZK : and I clicked on the name only to find more great things to read and enjoy. I ended up on yr website and found that you are a fellow brother from Florida. I’m an English major at the University of Florida and I was born and raised in FL with all the stereotypical flaws to prove it. I’ve met a few local poets/writers and have very loose ties within the local writing community–which is why I’m here. I’m always interested in becoming a better writer and always enjoy any correspondence for any length that it may last. Anyway despite the commonly narrow notion that anyone who says something good and who happens to be from where oneself is from means that they owe you something, in the form of friendship, favors or excessive courtesy, I seek out others who have a keen sense of humor that resonates with my own.
    Cheers,

      I meant a few things with that particular thought. But that’s the fun of writingβ€”and reading. Everything means something different to every person. If you find meaning that I didn’t intend, or you see it differently than I do, then that is value added. In this case there is no one definitive meaning, and what I meant when I wrote it might not be how I interpreted it today as I just read it again. But both meanings have value, and in fact today I saw two different things, so those three form a table that holds up my understanding about life.
