Quote of the Day (Robert Stone, on Being ‘Clamorous and Vain’ in the ‘60s)

“In our time [the Sixties], we were clamorous and vain. I speak not only for myself here, but for all those with whom I shared the era and what I think of as its attitudes. We wanted it all; sometimes we confused self-destructiveness with virtue and talent, obliteration with ecstasy, heedlessness with courage.” —Robert Stone, Prime Green: Remembering the Sixties (2007)
