Quote of the Day (Philip Roth, on Literature as a ‘Habit of Mind’)

“Literature takes a habit of mind that has disappeared. It requires silence, some form of isolation, and sustained concentration in the presence of an enigmatic thing.” ―Philip Roth quoted in David Remnick, “Into the Clear,” The New Yorker, May 8, 2000
