"Dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen." Henrich Heine 1823

translation: Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.

The so-called faculty of writing is not so much a faculty of writing as it is a faculty of thinking. When a man says, I have an idea but I can't express it; that man hasn't an idea but merely a vague feeling. If a man has a feeling of that kind, and will sit down for a half an hour and persistently try to put into writing what he feels, the probabilities are at least 90 percent that he will either be able to record it, or else realize that he has no idea at all. In either case, he will do himself a benefit." Rear Admiral Bradley A. Fiske in Proceedings, Vol. 45 No. 192, February 1919
