quote of the day

“There is no greater happiness in the world than to be fulfilled in your vocation, even if the material rewards are minimal. There is no greater bitterness than to realize that your vocation has come to nothing, even if you’re materially successful. But life awards few consolation prizes: To fail as a writer doesn’t automatically mean that you will be successful at anything else.”

— from Writing A Novel by John Braine author of The Crying Game
