"Images Are Taking Over, And Writers Are A Dying Breed. The Norman Mailers Of Today Are Reduced To Writing Pun-filled Captions For Paparazzi Photos. Blogs--which Were Threatening Enough To Professional Writers--are Being Replaced By Video Blogs. We Writers Need To Embraced The Second Commandment As Our Rallying Cry For The Importance Of Words. In A Literally Biblical World, All Publications Would Look Like The Front Page Of The Wall Street Journal. Or The Way It Used To Look, Anyway."

I was at once content and stimulated with what I saw: I liked what I had seen, and wished to see more. Yet, for a long time, I treated you distantly, and sought your company rarely. I was an intellectual epicure, and wished to prolong the gratification of making this novel and piquant acquaintance: besides, I was for a while troubled with a haunting fear that if I handled the flower freely its bloom would fade-the sweet charm of freshness would leave it. I did not then know that it was no transitory blossom; but rather the radiant resemblance of one, cut in an indestructible gem."
