Famous quotes containing the word writing:

    As if reasoning were any kind of writing or talking which tends to convince people that some doctrine or measure is true and right.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When, said Mr. Phillips, he communicated to a New Bedford audience, the other day, his purpose of writing his life, and telling his name, and the name of his master, and the place he ran from, the murmur ran round the room, and was anxiously whispered by the sons of the Pilgrims, “He had better not!” and it was echoed under the shadow of the Concord monument, “He had better not!”
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
