Quote of the day: HURT

September 23, 2010


When a beast is hurt it roars in incomprehension.
When a bird is hurt it huddle sin its nest.

But when a man is hurt,
he makes himself an expert.
Then he stands there with a glass in his hand
staring into nothing
as if he was forming an opinion.

— Tony Hoagland, from “When Dean Young Talks About Wine”
