Quote of the Day (Marge Piercy, on Getting Through the Workday)

“I love people who harness themselves, an ox to a heavy cart,
Who pull like water buffalo, with massive patience,
Who strain in the mud and the muck to move things forward,
Who do what has to be done, again and again.”—Marge Piercy, “To be of use,” in Bill Moyers, Fooling With Words: A Celebration of Poets and Their Craft (1999)
