„One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.“

—  Virginia Woolf, Context: The human frame being what it is, heart, body and brain all mixed together, and not contained in separate compartments as they will be no doubt in another million years, a good dinner is of great importance to good talk. One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. Ch. 1, p. 18

„If people cannot write well, they cannot think well, and if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.“

—  George Orwell English author and journalist 1903 - 1950
Attributed to Orwell by John H. Bunzel, president of San Jose State University, as reported in Phyllis Schlafly, The Power of the Positive Woman (1977), p. 151<!-- Bunzel's attribution is also quoted in The Presbyterian Journal, Volume 35 (1976), p. 55, but GoogleBooks only has a snippet -->; but not found in Orwell's works or in reports contemporaneous with his life. Possibly a paraphrase of Orwell's description of the rationale behind Newspeak in 1984.

„Writing well was almost the same as thinking well, and thinking well was the next thing to acting well.“

—  Thomas Mann German novelist, and 1929 Nobel Prize laureate 1875 - 1955
Context: Writing well was almost the same as thinking well, and thinking well was the next thing to acting well. All moral discipline, all moral perfection derived from the soul of literature, from the soul of human dignity, which was the moving spirit of both humanity and politics. Yes, they were all one, one and the same force, one and the same idea, and all of them could be comprehended in one single word... The word was — civilization! Ch. 4
