[I See Manuscripts And Books That Are Spoiled For The Literary Reader Because They Are One Long Stream Of Top-of-the-head Writing, A Writer Telling A Story Without Concern For Precision Or Freshness In The Use Of Language. Some Of This Storytelling Reads As If It Were Spoken Rather Than Written, Stuffed With Tired Images That Pop Into The Writer's Head Because They Are So Familiar. The Top Of The Head Is Fit For Growing Hair, But Not For Generating Fine Prose.]

Quotes About Thank God For The Blessing

"Our first night in the house, my wife and I were lying in bed. I was thanking God for my blessings. Thanking God for not having to pull aside a dining room curain to have my children near—that they were right down the hall, asleep in their Superman underwear, their little chests rising and falling to the pulse of their dreams.I thought how some blessings are fickle guests. Just when we think theyre here to stay, they pack their bags and move. When were in the midst of blessing, we think its our due—that blessing lasts forever. Next thing you know were sitting helpless beside a hospital bed. All were left with is a name on a wall, a toy in a desk, and memories that haunt our sleep.Sometimes we come to gratitute too late. Its only after blessing has passed on that we realize what we had.—chapter 2" - Author: Philip Gulley

Quotes About Photography For Instagram

"Heres a current example of the challenge we face. At the height of its power, the photography company Kodak employed more than 140,000 people and was worth $28 billion. They even invented the first digital camera. But today Kodak is bankrupt, and the new face of digital photography has become Instagram. When Instagram was sold to Facebook for a billion dollars in 2012, it employed only thirteen people. Where did all those jobs disappear to? And what happened to the wealth that those middle-class jobs created? This book is built to answer questions like these, which will only become more common as digital networking hollows out every industry, from media to medicine to manufacturing." - Author: Jaron Lanier
