on writing - ursula le guin

A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they
say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so
they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using
words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their
lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make
the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper.

-Ursula Le Guin

She is so wise. Check out her quotes page on Goodreads.
