Writers Bible

Famous quotes containing the words writers and/or bible:

    It is a mass language only in the same sense that its baseball slang is born of baseball players. That is, it is a language which is being molded by writers to do delicate things and yet be within the grasp of superficially educated people. It is not a natural growth, much as its proletarian writers would like to think so. But compared with it at its best, English has reached the Alexandrian stage of formalism and decay.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    Intense study of the Bible will keep any writer from being vulgar, in point of style.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
