Quote of the Week

“An author can hardly hope to be popular unless he can use popular language... But all this must be learned and acquired, not while he is writing... but long before. His language must come from him as music comes from the rapid touch of the great performer's fingers.” ~ Anthony Trollope

(Works by Trollope: The Way We Live Now, The Chronicles of Bartsetshire, He Knew He Was Right, and a number of other novels not listed here.)
