Quote of the Day

You know, you read a great poem in a magazine somewhere, and you just can't stand the fact that you didn't write it.  What do you do?  Well, you can't get whiteout, and blank out the poet's name and write yours in -- that's not fair.  But you can say, "Okay, I didn't write that poem, let me write a poem like that, that's sort of my version of that."  And that's basically the way you grow...

 -- Billy Collins
