Quote of the Day

From Sir Tom Stoppard:

 “Words are innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across the incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they’re no good anymore. I don’t think writers are sacred, but words are. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little or make a poem which children will speak for you when you’re dead.”
