Writers on Writing

Accuracy is not just a matter of facts; it is also correct spelling, punctuation, grammar, measurement, context, relevance — in a word, precision. I learned this from my first city editor, who taught me that a door is not a doorway; that "no injuries were reported" does not mean that "there were no injuries"; that a man charged with burglary is not necessarily a burglar ... At its best, accuracy is a painstaking, caring, patient and reasonable faculty of mind. — Evan Hill
