… The world agrees
That he writes well who writes with ease.

As those move easiest who have learn’d to dance.

Of all those arts in which the wise excel,
Nature’s chief masterpiece is writing well.
        Buckingham.—Essay on Poetry.

’Tis hard to say, if greater want of skill
Appear in writing or in judging ill.
        Pope.—On Criticism, Line 1.

As much in writing, as in living well.
