noticers of life

Literature makes us better noticers of life; we get to practice on life itself; which in turn makes us better readers of detail in literature; which in turn makes us better readers of life.

– James Wood, How Fiction Works

I read this wonderful quote, with which I believe wholeheartedly, in Mary Karr’s The Art of Memoir.
