Those who write clearly have readers, those who write obscurely have commentators.
Albert Camus quotes
History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
Winston Churchill quotes
Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.
Robert Heinlein quotes
True glory consists in doing what deserves to be written; in writing what deserves to be read; and in so living as to make the world happier and better for our living in it.
Major writing is to say what has been seen, so that it need never be said again.
Oh, what good will writing do? I want to put my hand out and touch you. I want to do for you and care for you. I want to be there when you're sick and when you're lonesome.
Writing, I think, is not apart from living. Writing is a kind of double living. The writer experiences everything twice. Once in reality and once in the mirror which waits always before or behind.
If Karl, instead of writing a lot about capital, had made a lot of it ... it would have been much better.
Writing is hard work and bad for the health.
No nation ancient or modern ever lost the liberty of freely speaking, writing, or publishing their sentiments, but forthwith lost their liberty in general and became slaves.
