Quote of the Day (Barbara Kingsolver, on the Influence of a Writer)

“A pen may or may not be mightier than the sword, but it is brassier than the telephone. When the writer converses privately with her soul in the long dark night, a thousand neighbors are listening in on the party line, taking it personally.”— American novelist, essayist and poet Barbara Kingsolver, High Tide in Tucson: Essays from Now or Never (1995)
