Quote of the Day

fightingwords.jpgI have to run off to Home Church so I can’t stay and post. I will, however, offer you this interesting quote from this neat little book I picked up:
Fighting Words: Writers Lambast Other Writers
.

Take Hemingway. People always think that the reason he’s easy to read is that he is concise. He isn’t. I hate conciseness – it’s to difficult. The reason Hemingway is easy to read is that he repeats himself all the time, using “and” for padding.
Tom Wolfe, on Ernest Hemingway

About the author

Kevin Holtsberry

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season - oh, and watching golf too).
