The good writer, the great writer, has what I have called the three S's: the power to see, to sense, and to say. That is, he is perceptive, he is feeling, and he has the power to express in language what he observes and reacts to.
Lawrence Clark Powell quote
Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of husbands. Remember all men would be tyrants if they could.
~ Abigail Adams (November 22, 1744 - October 28, 1818)
