“Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you would have preferred to talk.”
“Your home is whatever in this world you love more than you love yourself. So that might be creativity, it might be family, it might be invention, adventure, faith, service. It might be raising corgis. I don’t know. Your home is that thing to which you can dedicate your energies with such singular devotion that the ultimate results become inconsequential.
For me, that home has always been writing.”
