    Good quote Kevin. I took one down a couple weeks ago from Robert Frost, on poetry:
    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

      That’s a good one too… And I just spotted this one from Huxley: “Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly — they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”
