Famous quotes containing the word written:

    Since I know nothing of the merits of poetry, I am not able to pass any opinion upon this, but I can see that “reap” and “deep,” “prayers” and “bears,” “ark” and “dark,” “true” and “grew” do rhyme, and so I suppose it is a splendid effort, but if you had written it in plain prose, I could have understood it a great deal better and read it a great deal more easily.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    Much has been written about her enemies. She picked them with care, and God knows they deserved her.
    Jules Feiffer (b. 1929)

    We are often struck by the force and precision of style to which hard-working men, unpracticed in writing, easily attain when required to make the effort. As if plainness and vigor and sincerity, the ornaments of style, were better learned on the farm and in the workshop than in the schools. The sentences written by such rude hands are nervous and tough, like hardened thongs, the sinews of the deer, or the roots of the pine.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
