Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

It is only when others take aspects of what an author has thought and said in order to develop, twist, and reinterpret his ideas to fit their own predilections and answer their own problems that the cold type of a printed page leaps to life, and, if this happens often enough, a single book…may become a real force in the cultural history of mankind. Without irony, therefore, I hope my book may be richly and repeatedly misunderstood.

William H. McNeill, The Rise of the West
