  2. 2. <ul><li>“ I turn sentences around. That's my life. I write a sentence and then I turn it around. Then I look at it and I turn it around again. Then I have lunch. Then I come back in and write another sentence. Then I have tea and turn the new sentence around. Then I read the two sentences over and turn them both around. Then I lie down on my sofa and think. Then I get up and throw them out and start from the beginning .” — Philip Roth </li></ul>02/18/11 Abdeslam Badre - 18th All ALC Annual Conference - Agadir 2011
