“We have discovered that writing allows even a stupid person to seem halfway intelligent, if only that person will write the same thought over and over again, improving it just a little bit each time. It is a lot like inflating a blimp with a bicycle pump. Anybody can do it. All it takes is time.”
—Kurt Vonnegut Jr. (1922-2007), a writer who was rarely overinflated, from Palm Sunday (1981)
