- I get to edit what I want to say as many times as I want before I actually release it to the public.
- I can put thoughts and words together in different ways and never say the same thing twice.
- Writing can unleash the best of me and the worst of me, but usually the best of me.
- The written language allows for contemplation, eloquence, and stylish composition—when you talk, you can’t take back what you’ve already said.
- How many times can you revise what you’ve written in the past? Moreover, you can see what you were trying to say in a whole new light, without bias or dismay at correction.
- Writing is the path to new worlds, new ideas, and a new eternity. What you create can last forever.
- I love books. Reading was the start of my writing, because if I had not learned how to read I would not know how to write. And, ultimately, reading and writing are so deeply intertwined that you can’t really separate them, except that one finishes what the other has started.
- The ability to get away from random conversation and simply communicate efficiently and to the point.
- The capacity to craft thoughts like a sculptor sculpts a statue, gradually and carefully.
- The power of words, written words. Silence is golden, which means that writing must be worth more than gold.
- The benefits of written languages, which are more than I can type at the moment.
Writing has shaped my life, and it has given me more confidence than public speaking ever could. After all, someone has to compose a speech for the orator to give. I know that sometimes it’s “philos-aphilos” as far as my feelings are concerned, but I do appreciate writing and everything it’s done for me despite all the frustration and impatience I experience. I also hope I will have the opportunity to do more for it than I’m doing now.
