Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them.
W. Clement Stone

Oscar Wilde

Easy reading is damn hard writing. But if it's right, it's easy. It's the other way round, too. If it's slovenly written, then it's hard to read. It doesn't give the reader what the careful writer can give the reader.
Maya Angelou
