Quote of the Day (Fran Lebowitz, on Not Writing)

“Sulking is a big effort. So is not writing. I only realized that when I did start writing. When I started getting real work done, I realized how much easier it is to write than not to write. Not writing is probably the most exhausting profession I’ve ever encountered. It takes it out of you. It’s very psychically wearing not to write—I mean if you’re supposed to be writing.”—Fran Lebowitz, “Fran Lebowitz, A Humorist at Work,” interviewed by James Linville and George Plimpton, The Paris Review, Summer 1993
