Sunday’s Snippets: Epigrams To Write By

Easy as A, B, C . . . from BB (by way of Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations)

Thinking you have nothing to say, on paper, on email, on computer, on Twitter?  Think again:

“There is nothing to write about, you say.  Well, then, write and let me know just this,— that there is nothing to write about; or tell me in the good old style if you are well.  That’s right.  I am quite well.” ~ Pliny the Younger.

“I write long epigrams, you yourself write nothing.  Yours are shorter.” ~ Martial in Epigrams

“‘Fool!’ said my muse to me, ‘look in they heart, and write.’” ~ Henry IV of France

“Talkers are no good doers.” ~ Shakespeare
