Upbeat Cynicism

what do you mean i lost my mind?

Quote of the day

The novelist not only works on more various elements, he appeals to more ordinary minds than the poet. This indeed is the strongest practical proof of his essential inferiority as an artist. All who are capable of an interest in incidents of life which do not affect themselves, may feel the same interest more keenly in a novel; but to those only who can lift the curtain does a poem speak intelligibly.

— Thomas Hill Green, An Estimate of the Value and Influence of Works of Fiction in Modern Times, 1911
