Quote of the Day (Jim Harrison, on What Made Him a Poet)

“I probably wouldn't have been a poet if I hadn't lost my left eye when I was a boy. A neighbor girl shoved a broken bottle in my face during a quarrel. Afterward, I retreated to the natural world and never really came back, you know.”—Poet/novelist/screenwriter (Legends of the Fall) Jim Harrison, “What I’ve Learned” (interview by Cal Fussman), Esquire, August 2014
