Adele Wiseman on Aiming High

Adele Wiseman on aiming high:

In my own work, which has for me the force of a vocation, to aim for other than the highest would be not only self-destructive but worse, boring. To aim for and miss the highest is only failure. Not to aim for the highest is betrayal.

From “Memoirs of a Book-Molesting Childhood” (1987).

I love the title of this book (and the sentiment in the quote). I must read Wiseman, really must.

Crackpot is a good one by Wiseman.
