A Monday Quote

The writer's first affinity is not to a loyalty, a tradition, a morality, a religion, but to life itself, and to its representation in language. Nothing is taboo. The writer will go anywhere, say anything to get it said; in fact, the writer is bent on doing so. The writer is bent.

Jayne Anne Phillips, "Why She Writes" from Why I Write: Thoughts on the Craft of Fiction (Little Brown).
