Quotes I like...

While watching again one of my favorite television shows, West Wing, I came across some lines that I wanted to share with readers of this blog.

In Episode 17 of Season III entitled The U. S. Poet Laureate, the character Tabatha Fortis (poet laureate played by Laura Dern, photo below) says to character Toby Ziegler:  An artist's job is to captivate you for however long we've asked for your attention.  If we stumble into the truth, we got lucky.

I like that.

Episode by Laura Glasser and Aaron Sorkin
