Quoted and noted: A 2-for-1 kind of day & my inner grammar nerd

10 Dec

“Many only learn in two ways: one by reading and the other by association with smarter people.” ~ Will Rogers

“We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are.” ~ Anaïs Nin

I quote people for a living. I understand the importance of getting it right. But in cases like this, I wonder, is it bad to fix faulty punctuation? Because both of these used a comma incorrectly, and I fixed them. It doesn’t change the speakers’ words, though, so I’m going with it and faulting whomever wrote the quotes down in the first place.

Word.
