Thought for the Day

. . . I think it's largely the conundrum of being human
that makes us keep making. I think it has something to do with
revision—how, not only is the world in constant revision,
but each of us is, as well. . . .
~ Poet and Essayist Carl Phillips

Quoted from Carl Phillips's wonderful The Art of Daring: Risk, Restlessnesss, Imagination (2014), part of Graywolf Press's The Art of series on the craft of writing

In February 2014, Ron Charles of The Washington Post interviewed Phillips for his "The Life of a Poet" series. Watch the video of the interview (it's excellent).
