Famous quotes containing the word style:

    To translate, one must have a style of his own, for otherwise the translation will have no rhythm or nuance, which come from the process of artistically thinking through and molding the sentences; they cannot be reconstituted by piecemeal imitation. The problem of translation is to retreat to a simpler tenor of one’s own style and creatively adjust this to one’s author.
    Paul Goodman (1911–1972)

    One man’s style must not be the rule of another’s.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    One never tires of what is well written, style is life! It is the very blood of thought!
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)
