I like to collect quotes, in particular about writing, and I'm going to share a series of them on the blog here.
I love this quote and keep coming back to it. It's from Valis, and the complete quote is:
personthere is a sentence — a series of words — which has the power to destroy him … another sentence exists, another series of words, which will heal the person. If you're lucky you will get the second; but you can be certain of getting the first: that is the way it works. On their own, without training, individuals know how to deal out the lethal sentence, but training is required to deal out the second." Philip K Dick, Valis.
