In the age of the Internet, anyone can spread a lie around the world, a privilege which, in earlier times, was reserved to the Media. Author unrevealed

Natan Sharansky   Do not "compromise for the sake of stability with those who will come to power -- and who, inevitably, if they have the opportunity to lead as dictators, will try to lead as dictators"

George Orwell> ("Politics and the English Language," 1946 )
"A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus: 1. What am I trying to say? 2. What words will express it? 3. What image or idiom will make it clearer? 4. Is this image fresh enough to have an effect? And he will probably ask himself two more: 1. Could I put it more shortly? 2. Have I said anything that is avoidably ugly?:"


In the syle of Ranganathan:
There is no paper so bad that it cannot be published.
OR "Every paper has its journal"

But: There are some papers so good that they cannot be published anywhere.
