Q: “How can one make the best of one’s life?”

A: “By converting as wide a range of experience into conscious thought.” – novelist Andre Malraux

Talk about succinct! Malraux captures the theme of The Lifelong Activist in two sentences.

And he’s not even the first smart French novelist to do so:

“regular and orderly in your life like a bourgeois, so that you may be violent and original in your work.” Gustave Flaubert

Okay, this guy’s not French, and not even a novelist, but he still rates a mention:

“dreams begin responsibilities” William Butler Yeats
