Does working in a group destroy individualism?
“One is not important, except insofar as one’s example can serve to elucidate a more widespread human trait and make readers feel a little less lonely and freakish.”
“The man who writes about himself and his time is the man who writes about all people and all time.”
“What is true for you in your private heart is true for all men”
“All our stories are the same.”
“…Unless a film of flesh envelops us, we die. Man exists only insofar as he is separated from his surroundings.”
“…Note…what it is about your work that the critics don’t like-then cultivate it. That’s the part of your work that is individual and worth keeping.”
