Famous quotes containing the word written:

    An example is often a deceptive mirror, and the order of destiny, so troubling to our thoughts, is not always found written in things past.
    Pierre Corneille (1606–1684)

    There is no doubt that the loftiest written wisdom is either rhymed or in some way musically measured,—is, in form as well as substance, poetry; and a volume which should contain the condensed wisdom of mankind need not have one rhythmless line.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The written word still enjoyed a certain prestige here. It was a sluggish country.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
