From Blaise Pascal, 1623-1662, French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher:

“I have only made this letter rather long because I have not had time to make it shorter.” Lettres Provincales, December 14, 1656, Cassell’s Book of Quotations, London, 1912, p. 718.

We might not write that many letters these days, but millions of us around the world frequently post to our weblogs. The challenge, at least for me, is to take the time “to make it shorter.”
