Quote of the Week: The Long Ball

"[W]e are always kinder to "partial" achievements in the long run of history than we are in the lifetime of the artist, when we keep wanting more. We judge an artist in his lifetime by batting average; afterward, only by home runs."
 - Adam Gopnik,"The Man in the White Suit," about Mark Twain, in the 11/29/10 New Yorker
