I get a Daily Literary Quote from my iGoogle page and wanted to share today’s quote with you.

“I cannot and do not live in the world of discretion, not as a writer, anyway. I would prefer to, I assure you — it would make life easier. But discretion is, unfortunately, not for novelists.”

Philip Roth

When writing ficiton, one should not play it safe. Be bold. Be passionate. Be reckless.
