Best. Editing. Quote. Ever. (At Least for Print Publications)

On the first day of my first real job in journalism—on the copy desk at the Royal Oak Daily Tribune in Royal Oak, Michigan—the chief copy editor said,“Remember, every word you cut saves the publisher money.”

This words=money equation is from Michael Kinsley's "Cut This Story!", originally published in the January issue of the Atlantic. Recommended.
