Thoughts in Writing

"The choice word, the correct phrase, are instruments that may reach the heart, and awake the soul if they fall upon ear in melodious cadence; but if the utterance be harsh and discordant they fail to interest, fall upon deaf ears, and are as barren as seed sown on fallow ground." -Frank H. Vizetelly, 1000 Useful Phrases


  1. So is that Vizetelly's way of saying you gotta please the critics?

  2. I think he's trying to say that no matter how important your message is, if you write like crap who is going to read it?
