Quote of the day

We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand. – Cecil Day Lewis who was born on this day in 1904.

Apropos of which, he also said:

First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it.
