To write well, express yourself like the common people, but think like a wise man.

Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
Anton Chekhov

A well composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way.

I like the last comment. Wafting is such a good verb. I love quote books - they make you think.
