Great Quotes

Another quote from Bird by Bird:

"The core, ethical concepts in which you most passionately believe are the language in which you are writing ... you can't tell them in a sentence or a paragraph; the truth doesn't come out in bumper stickers. there may be a flickering moment of insight in a one-liner, in a sound bite, but everyday meat-and-potatoes truth is beyond our ability to capture in a few words. Your whole piece is the truth, not just one shining epigrammatic moment in it. We're dealing with the ineffable here--we're out there somewhere between the known and the unknown, trying to reel in both for a closer look. This is why it may take a whole book."

--Anne Lamott
