Less Talk More Action

“The fun of talk is to explore, but much of it and all that is irresponsible should not be written.” — Ernest Hemingway

Not sure if he means conversation generally or prose dialogue in particular, but I could write better were I to remember this.

Eating Words

“Words are events, they do things, change things. They transform both speaker and hearer; they feed energy back and forth and amplify it. They feed understanding or emotion back and forth and amplify it.” — Ursula K LeGuin
