480 – “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” | “How do I know what I think until I see what I say.”

–Flannery O’Connor | –E M Forster [both attributed]

Quote Number:  615

Source: attributed

Source Notes: In addition, Karl E Weick uses a similar quote (“In the recipe, How can I know what I think until I see what I say, saying equates…”) in Sense Making in Organizations, but he is using it as an already existing idea, so is unlikely to be the original source for the quote.
