Writing Quotes

Is the 'is' in Richard Brinsley Sheridan's quote 'Never say more than is necessary' necessary?





I am the seasons, I think sometimes, January, May, November; the mud, the mist, the dawn. I cannot be tossed about, or float gently, or mix with other people.



 

Someone will remember us
I say
even if in another time

Sappho translated by Anne Carson

 
Wouldnt it be wonderful
if all our letters could be published
in the future
in a more enlightened time

Then all the world could see
how in love we are

correspondence between WWII soldier Gilbert Bradley & sweetheart Gordon Bowsher


memories in photos
too easy to rewrite
left as lonely shadows
holding each other tight

Call me crazy. Call the universe cruel.
Call my mother on the phone, with
an apology she’ll never believe. Call
me soulmate, I never believed in them
anyway. Call to ask how I’m doing.
Call for all of your kitchen dances
and hazey car kisses back. Call
my name in your sleep, call it when
you unravel.

You ask my why all of my writing sounds
sad, but you don't understand the way it
manifests. The way my words are strung
fairy lights, in an empty house at
midnight, trying to make all of the dark
edges beautiful again.

The term “big personality” confuses me. I don’t quite understand what it means. it makes me think, If some people have big personalities, then I must have a very small personality. yes, I have a timid, bird-like personality; she is meant for ocean views, snow, warm drinks, intimacy and soft grey mornings. though she is quiet, she dances; ripples; blossoms in lovelight. in trusted company, in the eyes of an understanding one, she can become quite grand. she persists and she is an intricate tree with roots of her own. she is a little timid. she is a little scared of multitudes - and she is quite small, my personality

I'm terribly sorry for my absence,
you see I was a touch too busy for witty.
I fell in love with someone nearly a year
ago, and to this day, I get excited for
every single date, but I'm still trying to
figure out how to write about being
happy.
