Fishing for Truth   2 comments

“Thinking by the river [in A River Runs Through It] is like fishing: the thinker tries to catch understanding but often fails to hook it.  Time and the river rush on, and it is not until long after events have occurred that knowledge takes shape.  When it does, it does so through creative, imaginative re-engagement with facts and perceptions, through a literary activity that reexamines and reorganizes things into something meaningful.”  —Chapter 2, By the River
