"All the fun is in how you say a thing." - Robert Frost
KISS is an acronym of the phrase "Keep It Simple, Stupid". Another version of the phrase is "Keep It Short & Simple" which you might hear quite often before you deliver your speech or presentation to a group of people who have a very tight schedule.
Sidney Smith wrote: "The writer helps us the most who give us the most knowledge, and takes from us the least time."
If you understand this principle well, you will always try to keep your writing short and simple by going straight to the point.
I love short and simple quotes because they are easy to remember and give remarkable impact. Below are some of those short quotes that I love:
"Men learn while they teach.
"Conceit is the quicksand of success."
"Today is the future I created yesterday."
"I look within to find my treasures."
"Good, to forgive; Best, to forget."
"Our attitude determines our altitude."
"You never know what you can do till you try."
"You never miss the water till the well runs dry."
"We are often our own worst enemy."
"Mistakes are the best teachers."
"Delegate but don't forget."
The above short quotes can be good topics for blogging!
In commercial world, very few thin books make big money even though their content can be superb because many could finish reading those books without the need of buying. However, in blog I tend to believe that we don't need long posts because many people don't really have time to read as there are so many blogs nowadays. Besides, since we blog daily, breaking a long post into multiple posts should be more effective.
What is your view about this? By the way, if you have short quotes you love, please share in your comments. Thank you.
