A change of subject.

As WordPress users will be well aware, whenever one posts a new blog entry, there’s a display where you can choose to Publish or Edit. It always features a literary quote, quite a nice touch.

I have made this letter longer, because I have not had the time to make it shorter.

Blaise Pascal

E.B. White

I do not like to write – I like to have written.

Gloria Steinem

Easy reading is damn hard writing.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.
