Importance of writing

Therefore, I count writing among the most significant of all human efforts. Good writing, after all, is simply the result of enormous reading, detailed research, and careful thought. It means studying to gain a good vocabulary, and practicing to learn how to use it. It seems to me that these kindred skills should be developed and nourished from the very first, if man is to grow intellectually. And unless he can express his thoughts well, he can exert little influence on his fellow men.

Captain Lambert,

Admiral Rikower, was not as handsome as this caricature and never really cared about all the stripes he is shown with in this portrayal, he was known for not paying any attention to receiving that next promotion. And he was right again in his attitude about writing, if one is unable to read and write at the highest level, his comprehension of the words will also be at a lower level, and he will be limited by those factors.

Very Respectfully,
