Quote Whore Sunday

Today's quote comes from - guess who?! - STEINBECK. Maybe I should change the name of this "tradition" to Steinbeck quote whore Sunday.

Today's quote comes from Travels with Charley which is one of the funniest books I've ever read. Steinbeck is such a careful and beautiful writer. You finish the book and just want to be his very best friend. Also, you want a French-speaking poodle named Charley.

"I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory or slobbed for a time in utter lazyness. I've lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment."
