Quotation of the Week

Every week, I’ll put up a quotation related to writing or creation and tell you a little bit about the person who said it.  I’ll try to vary the speakers as much as possible.

“True ease in writing comes from art, not chance, as those who move easiest have learned to dance.” - Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope was an English poet that lived in the early eighteenth century.  He is famous for his translation of Homer, the author of Iliad and Odyssey.  His poems were known to be satirical, such as The Rape of the Lock. (Wikipedia)

(I found the quotation via @TheBookDoctors on Twitter.)
