From the Quotation of the day mailing list, 2017-03-25:
"I grew up in New Orleans, where no one did anything. It's an endlessly charming and delightful place, but the idea that your worth was connected to things you did in the world was an alien idea." -- Michael Lewis, author of the bestsellers Moneyball and The Big Short, in praise of laziness.
