A writer — and, I believe, generally all persons — must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art. Jorge Luis Borges, Twenty-four Conversations with Borges: Interviews by Roberto Alifano, trans. by Nicomedes Suáez Araúz, Willis Barnstone, and Noemí Escandell (via bookoasis)

I hated the freaking Gilmore Girls, but I need to make a montage of girls reading Sylvia Plath. (I USED to have the URL of an article which analyzed them all, but I lost it. sigh.)
