Wednesday Words

"It's strange, how they pride themselves upon their lacks. "I never take anything seriously," they say. "I simply couldn't imagine," they say, "letting myself care so much that I could be hurt." They say, "No one person could be that important to me." And why, why do they think they're right?"
-Dorothy Parker, Sentiment, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Backdoor brag: A woman in my essay class last year said that my writing reminded her of Dorothy Parker. I finally picked up some of Ms. Parker's work last month and I'm in love. While I have a long, long way to go to feel worthy of being compared to her, I certainly now strive for it.
