I doubt there is a sound bite today that can match this quote from Samuel Johnson, an 18th century essayist"
"What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure."
Another of my favorites, attributed to Henry Ford is:
"Think you can or think you can't. Either way, you're right."
So, don't let the pace of today's multimedia lifestyle keep you from quiet time with pen and paper, or with your computer. Capture your thoughts. There are always new markets for our writing. Let's not waste any opportunities.
