On the Unexamined Life -- Edwin McDowell



Whoever said the unexamined life is not worth living apparently never intended to go into book publishing, where there is almost no research and where much of the conventional wisdom is a pastiche of folklore, myth and wishful thinking.
    -- Edwin McDowell, "Publishing: And They All Said It Wouldn't Sell", New York Times, February 6, 1989
