“A writer is a person who cares what words mean,
what they say, how they say it.
Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom,
and so they use them with care,
with thought, with fear, with delight.
By using words well they strengthen their souls.
Story-tellers and poets spend their lives
learning that skill and art of using words well.
And their words make the souls of their readers
stronger, brighter, deeper.”
—Ursula K. Le Guin
