“I was caned for my penmanship, more than once. I lived in fear of essays with smudges. I used to spill vast blots of ink, all the time. I really grew to like Robert Motherwell because of it. And I remember how on my thin white cotton shirts, all the pockets were endlessly stained with bright blue blossoms.”

“Better Penmanship, Less Pain,” by David Colman, The New York Times, February 4, 2011.
