Quote of the day for Wednesday

Every grain of experience is food for the greedy growing soul of the artist. 

Anthony Burgess

When British author Anthony Burgess (born February 25, 1917) sold A Clockwork Orange to a U.S. publisher, he allowed them to cut out the last chapter, in which the anti-hero has a change of mind and rejects violence. Burgess regretted that cut when the U.S. version became a bestseller thanks to Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation.
