“Most of us don't know a gerund from a gerbil and don't care, but we'd like to speak and write as though we did.”
“In many ways, the ability to read is the great divide that separates the very young from everyone else. Once we've joined the conspiracy of the literate, once we've crossed over to the land of the reading, everything changes.”
“The transaction between writer and reader is human civilization's most dazzling feat, yet it's such a part of our lives that it's, well, prosaic.”
Patricia T. O'Connor, U.S. writer, editor
