I’m reading a proposal for a nonfiction book for my internship at a literary agency and all I can think of is this John Green quote:

"I would argue that it is because I have a liberal arts education and because I’ve spent time thinking about the eyes on that billboard that I’m able to listen to you talk for four minutes about something that I don’t understand yet."

While reading this, I can only thank goodness that my English degree taught me to pay attention to the details even when I’m bored. Because otherwise I don’t know how I’d be getting through this manuscript.
