A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week: 1st anniversary edition

This is quote of the week is #53. I’ve been sharing these for a year now, and to celebrate the anniversary, I give you a word of wisdom from one of my favorites:

“He used to say I was an incurable optimist, but it wasn’t optimism, it was the deep realization that, even though the world busy digging its grave, there was still time to enjoy life, to be merry, carefree, to work or not to work.”

— from Quiet Days in Clichy by Henry Miller
