Writing Quote of the Day: D.H. Lawrence

I am a man, and alive.... For this reason I am a novelist.  And being a novelist, I consider myself superior to the saint, the scientist, the philosopher, and the poet, who are all great masters of different bits of man alive, but never get the whole hog.  

~D.H. Lawrence, preface to Shestov, All Things Are Possible, 1938
