Literary Lab Quote of the Day #1

"In two weeks it'll be the longest day in the year." She looked at us all radiantly. "Do you always watch for the longest day of the year and then miss it? I always watch for the longest day in the year and then miss it."

~Daisy Buchanan, from The Great Gatsby

  1. Just the fact that you posted this has made my day. Ahhh, The Great Gatsby. One of my all-time favorites. I feel a sudden urge to go read it again right now.

  2. am i less of a writer for never having read this book? somehow it wasn't ever required in school. i feel a sudden urge to get it from the library to make up for this fallacy.

  3. Jeannie, you would be wise to do so. It's utterly amazing. I get jealous every time I read it. Talk about layers! Whew.

  4. I'm with Michelle. Yesterday I was listening to the audio version read by Tim Robbins, and I just felt jealous the whole time. Then, I got home and wrote for an hour, even though I was exhausted.
