By Samuel Johnson:

Read over your composition, and wherever you meet
with a passage which you think is particularly fine,
strike it out.

No man but a blockhead ever wrote except for money.

By Sydney Smith:

In composing, as a general rule, run your pen through
every other word you have written; you have no idea
what vigor it will give your style.
