Quote o' the Morning to You

From Aloft, by Chang-rae Lee

"...because anyone knows that the best way to make a living is to spend the workaday hours submitting to your obsessions and that everything else is just plain grubby labor. But that's the life of the charming and the lucky and the talented, and for the rest of us perfectly acceptables and okays and competents it's a matter of persistence and numbness to actual if minor serial failure and a wholly unsubstantiated belief in the majesty of individual destiny, all of which is democracy's spell of The Possible on us."
