Quote of the Day (Katherine Anne Porter, on the ‘Work of the Artist’)

“Human life itself may be almost pure chaos, but the work of the artist — the only thing he's good for — is to take these handfuls of confusion and disparate things, things that seem to be irreconcilable, and put them together in a frame to give them some kind of shape and meaning.”—Katherine Anne Porter (1890-1980), interviewed for Writers at Work, Second Series (1963) edited by George Plimpton
