Random quote of the day:

Random quote of the day:

“In a creative writing class of twenty people anywhere in this country, six students will be startlingly talented. Two of those might actually publish something by and by. [What distinguishes those two from the rest is that] they will have something other than literature itself on their minds. They will probably be hustlers, too. I mean that they won’t want to wait passively for somebody to discover them. They will insist on being read.”

—Kurt Vonnegut, interview, The Paris Review, Issue 69, Spring 1977
