A philosopher once said, ‘Half of good philosophy is good grammar.”

A. P. Martinich

Grammar is a piano I play by ear. All I know about grammar is its power.

Joan Didion

Like everything metaphysical the harmony between thought and reality is to be found in the grammar of the language.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Anarchy is as detestable in grammar as it is in society.

Maurice Druon

Grammar is to a writer what anatomy is to a sculptor, or the scales to a musician. You may loathe it, it may bore you, but nothing will replace it, and once mastered it will support you like a rock.

B. J. Chute

Grammar is not a set of arbitrary rules; it is a compact between people who wish to understand each other.

Robert Breault

Grammar is the logic of speech, even as logic is the grammar of reason.

Richard Chenevix Trench
