25. REVISING

“If I had more time I would have written a shorter letter.” 
—Blaise Pascal

If you here require a practical rule of me, I will present you with this: 'Whenever you feel an impulse to perpetrate a piece of exceptionally fine writing, obey it - whole-heartedly - and delete it before sending your manuscript to press.' Arthur Quiller-Couch

“Words are like leaves; and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.” Alexander Pope

“Perfection is not when there is no more to add, but no more to take away.” Antoine de Saint Exupéry
