Random Quote from a Book Deemed Good Enough to Bring Home
"I don't know why people shouldn't write to each other anyway. They did in the old days. But now I guess all they want is to be on television."
to Arthur Mizener, 1950
Selected Letters, p. 697
(from Ernest Hemingway* on Writing, edited by Larry W. Phillips)
Dawn of a new daily feature day here, folks. As in, nobody cares about books anymore so each morning, or afternoon, or whenever I get a chance to, will pick, at random, a book from my office and offer an interesting quote from therein.
As Tuesdays are deadline days, however, they'll be reserved for the Greatest American Writer*.
Other than that, they may be classics, they may be new releases sent to work and they may be utterly ridiculous. But they'll all remind us that reading's cool, mmmkay. Hope you enjoy.
