Pay Attention

“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”
– Susan Sontag

  3. Tina – I love this quote. Thank you for posting. Last week I keynote at a Senior Awareness day in Rockland County, NY on this subject, making the point of the day awareness — attention — and not being senior. I’m delighted to have Sontag’s great quote to add to the arsenal. I greatly admire her work. Thanks. Bruce (“What Should I Do With The Rest Of My Life?”/ Avery/Penguin)
