“Having talent in an area does not mean that you are necessarily going to be thrilled or in wild ecstasy over every part of the process. It doesn’t mean you won’t have difficulties and frustrations. It doesn’t mean that there won’t be things to do that you would rather not do. Still, you must in some measure enjoy the process as a totality.” – Laurence Boldt, Zen and the Art of Making a Living

These involve problems of organization, style, research, logic, concentration, and persistence, which generally do not apply in writing personal letters.” – Laurence Boldt, Zen And The Art Of Making A Living

“People who read a lot and enjoy life and enjoy words make better writers.” – Candice Hern, Author, A Proper Companion
