HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

Wisdom from Polonius


George Gordon, Lord Byron

“Words are things; and a small drop of ink / Falling like dew upon a thought, produces / That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.”


Christopher Morley

“Words are a commodity in which there is never any slump.”


Nathaniel Hawthorne

“Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.”


Kingsley Amis

“If you can’t annoy someone, there’s little point in writing.”
