Delight in what you do

March 20, 2012

Some powerful thoughts on academic writing from William Tozier:

You are not allowed to keep delight to yourself. Moron. This, above all the other things, is the thing the Academy has lied you into misunderstanding, with its delayed gratifications and postponements of your life: Delight, kept secret, always fades to nothing.
