Quote of the Day/Week- Gertrude Stein

We continue our series of quotes from American writers with a quip from Gertrude Stein (1874-1976) who was played in the Woody Allen movie "Midnight in Paris" by Oscar-winner Kathy Bates (pictured). "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas" is among her famous works:

"I write for myself and strangers. This is the only way that I can do it."

SIDEBAR: Arielle Martin, 26, a BMX women's biker from Cedar Hills, Utah, who will compete at the 2012 London Olympics is the subject of an excellent feature in "The Deseret Morning News" (Salt Lake City newspaper) by Amy Donaldson. Martin crashed during the world championships for the sport in China  in 2008 (not during the Olympics). But, she has not only made a full recovery; she will also compete for the United States at the 2012 London Olympics.
