Quote of the Day (Somerset Maugham, on Originality and the World)

"Now the world in general doesn't know what to make of originality; it is startled out of its comfortable habits of thought, and its first reaction is one of anger." —W. Somerset Maugham, Great Novelists and Their Novels: Essays on the Ten Greatest Novels of the World and the Men and Women Who Wrote Them (1948)
