Uncritical American boosterism - automatic endorsement of every government action - is myopic and self-defeating.
The physical sensation of gliding with the wind in your face is exhilarating.

A. S. Byatt

I've not been a prolific poet, and it always seemed to me to be a bad idea to feel that you had to produce in order to get... credits.

A huge part of keeping women in their place has to do with creating a really limited definition of what a 'real' woman is like.

The 'OK Plateau' is that place we all get to where we just stop getting better at something. Take typing, for example.
