    Wherever the relevance of speech is at stake, matters become political by definition, for speech is what makes man a political being.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    Thomas S. Kuhn (b. 1922)

    The skilful Nymph reviews her force with care:
    Let Spades be trumps! she said, and trumps they were.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    The most striking fault in work by young or beginning novelists, submitted for criticism, is irrelevance—due either to infatuation or indecision. To direct such an author’s attention to the imperative of relevance is certainly the most useful—and possibly the only—help that can be given.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    William Gibson (b. 1948)
