Quotation of the Day for December 10, 2013

"My understanding is that God and the Devil are often present in our actions. When we work with great energy it's because our best motive and our worst motive-or, to put it another way, God and the Devil-are equally engaged in the outcome and so, for a period, working within us....But my argument is that when we act with great energy, it is because God and the Devil have the same interest in the outcome. (Their differences will be settled later.) Whereas when we work with little energy, it's because they are not only at odds but are countermanding each other's impact upon us."

- Norman Mailer, writer, from an interview with Michael Lennon.
