Day 12

Today's quote comes from Angela Carter, who's one of my new writing heroes. The quote resonates with me, as it reflects where I feel I am in my life at present.

Anxiety is the beginning of conscience, which is the parent of the soul but is not compatible with innocence.
Angela Carter (1940-1992), British postmodern novelist. repr. Penguin. Nights at the Circus, part 3, ch. 11, Chatto & Windus (1984).
