Quote of the day

This may have been said years ago, but I read it today. He's talking about New Zealand:
"It's true you can't live here by chance: you have to do and be, not simply watch or even describe," wrote Wellington poet Lauris Edmond, who died in 2000, in The Active Voice. "This is the city of action, the world headquarters of the verb."
And what an appropriate publication for such a quote: The Active Voice. I love it.

I haven't yet been able to discover what The Active Voice is, but I have found out that the quote is on a literature-as-art piece in Wellington. It is part of a Wellington Waterfront project that sets in concrete the words of writers with local ties.
