30 pieces of wisdom from Stephen King novels

While in various fictional universes, wisdom comes from left, right and centre, in real life, it's sadly lacking. Put your hand up if you have a wise confidante who spouts well-crafted one-liners about what on earth to do with your life. Yeah, didn't think so.

So when it comes to choosing a pop culture sage, you really need to choose well. Truth is, you can do much worse than trusting Stephen King. He's not an international best-selling author for nothing. The guy knows how to spin a good sentence.

Read on and be inspired. Oh and then let us know what we've missed at the bottom.
