Writers Who Don’t Write Wallow in a Sea of Possibilities

The only writers who have any peace are the ones who don’t write. And there are some like that. They wallow in a sea of possibilities. To express a thought, you first have to limit it, and that means kill it. Every word I speak robs me of a thousand others, and every line I write means giving up another.
— Stanisław Lem, Polish writer.
