Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Do not, on a rainy day, ask your child what he feels like doing, because I assure you that what he feels like doing, you won't feel like watching.
This quote highlights a common scenario where children and adults may have different preferences. On a rainy day, if a parent asks their child what they want to do, it implies that the child's idea may involve activities that the parent might not find enjoyable. The quote suggests that the parent should be aware that their own preferences may not align with their child's, especially when it comes to activities during bad weather.
It is my belief that the writer, the free-lance author, should be and must be a critic of the society in which he lives. It is easy enough, and always profitable, to rail away at national enemies beyond the sea, at foreign powers beyond our borders who question the prevailing order.But the moral duty of the free writer is to begin his work at home; to be a critic of his own community, his own country, his own culture. If the writer is unwilling to fill this part, then the writer should abandon pretense and find another line of work: become a shoe repairman, a brain surgeon, a janitor, a cowboy, a nuclear physicist, a bus driver.
