Vita Sackville-West on what we lose if we don’t write — Quotes for writers (and people who like quotes)

Vita Sackville WestIt is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. – Vita Sackville-West

    The butterfly of the moment! How marvelous a phrase to keep me doing what I was beginning to question, although the days slipping emptily by is a constant dread!
