Art: Attention is vitality

A quote by Susan Sontag from an article about her in last Friday's NY Times by Holland Cotter - On Sontag: Essayist as Metaphor and Muse
“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”
