random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
  One of the joys of historical research is the revelation of how much milk of human kindness there is in libraries. It is in the realm of research that one sees librarians in their truest light. They are a race apart, untrammelled by false distinctions of creed, color, or national origin. Big and small, male and female, young and old, they share a sense of interest in what they have to offer, and once assured of this, they give of themselves without stint. Few avocations have a greater claim to sainthood or a truer key to happiness.

daily kos blogs for the love of it

Kos blogs for the love of it — not for money.

A reporter asked, “So, uh, blogging … what’s your revenue stream?”

I responded, “I don’t blog because I have to, I blog because I want to. It’s the essence of writing — doing it for the joy of it.” Perhaps I imagined it all, but I sensed a grudging respect from them, a few nods of the head. Things are obviously different now, at least in the “revenue stream” department.

What’s that famous quote about nobody but a fool writing for anything but money?
