Quote of the Day 2

“The search for meaning will fill you with a sense of meaning.  Otherwise life passes by in about seven weeks, and if you are not paying attention and savoring it as it unfurls, you will wake up one day in deep regret.  It’s much better to wake up now in deep regret, desperate not to waste more of your life obsessing and striving for meaningless crap.  Because you will have finally awakened.”

Anne Lamott, Stitches

Quote of the Day

“A truly excellent writer, though, pursues her obsessions and allows them to dictate what form her work will take.  That sounds simple, but in fact it is hard for any writer to recognize what those obsessions are, to face them squarely when they are frightening or puzzling, and to shape them into persuasive works of art.”

J. Robert Lennon, reviewing Jamie Quatro’s I Want To Show You More, The New York Times Book Review
