Quote of the Day (Renata Adler, on Boredom and Cruelty)

“Idle people are often bored and bored people, unless they sleep a lot, are cruel. It is no accident that boredom and cruelty are great preoccupations in our time. They flourish in a single region of the mind.” —American essayist-novelist Renata Adler, Speedboat (1976)
