The process of writing can be a powerful tool for self-discovery. Writing demands self-knowledge; it forces the writer to become a student of human nature, to pay attention to his experience, to understand the nature of experience itself. By delving into raw experience and distilling it into a work of art, the writer is engaging in the heart and soul of philosophy – making sense out of life.
~ Georg Buehler

Words have power. They work. That’s why poetry can affect people. That’s why music and lyrics and songs affect people.
~ Sammy Hagar, American rock vocalist.
