And maybe it is the only salvation that matters

August 12, 2010

“I was starting to wonder if I was ready to be a writer, not someone who won prizes, got published, and was given the time and space to work, but someone who wrote as a course of life. Maybe writing wouldn’t have any rewards. Maybe the salvation I would gain through work would only be emotional and intellectual.”

—  Ann Patchett, Truth & Beauty (pg. 78)
