"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember, from time to time, that nothing worth knowing can be taught."
"It is always a joy to me to sit and think and create words and shapes and colors. I know so many people who look down on writing, who say it won't help the world at large. Who say it's not practical. Who say it's not stupid. It's comments like those that make me cry (and that's really hard to do. Seriously). It's comments like those that lead to the Dark Ages.
Those who don't see the value and beauty of writing have never learned history. The swords may have fought the crusades, but the words began it. John F. Kennedy incited the fires in the hearts of a nation with his prose. Martin Luther King Jr. tore down walls, while Winston Churchill built them. Orwell protested the government, and the government has protested countless others. Lincoln was a politician with them, Malcolm X a rebel. God led his people out of the desert, Buddha calmed the mind, Vishnu destroyed, Muhammad enlightened.
When pen meets paper, something incredible happens. Something transient and desperate and loving and hating happens.
Life happens on that paper.
And then paper meets voice, and things change.
And soon a man is on the moon, and people have a dream, and rebels find their cause.
All because of the words.
Maybe I'll never achieve that level of greatness. Maybe no one will ever get chills when they witness my words. But they are mine. A soul fragment on a blank eight and a half by eleven sheet, with nothing in the way of my innermost thoughts except the great white chasm of indecision and the accursed writers' block. And procrastination, lots of that. Laziness is a key factor.
The point is... well… I sort of lost track of myself. What were we talking about again?
Well, that's how it goes I guess."
