Words are beautiful things.

"I love it that as a writer 
you work with the poetry 
and music of words. 
Words are as wild as rocky peaks. 
They're as smooth as a millpond 
and as sunny as a day in a meadow. 
Words are beautiful things. 
Every word matters."

~ Brian Jacques, 
in The Wand in the Word: 
Conversations with Writers of Fantasy

I was reading The Wand in the Word (compiled and edited by Leonard S. Marcus) the other night and this quote jumped out at me.  I love Brian Jacques's description of writing! Words are beautiful things.
