Quote of the Day 9/14/08 (Spots of Time: 2 of 3)

Poets talk about "spots of time," but it is really fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment. No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone.

in Norman Maclean's A River Runs Through It

Ohhh ... great line! Is that from A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT? It has been two or three years since I last read it.
