thoughts
Thoughts
  • the writer is delegated to declare and to celebrate man's proven capacity for greatness of heart and spirit—for gallantry in defeat, for courage, compassion and love. In the endless war against weakness and despair, these are the bright rally flags of hope and of emulation. I hold that a writer who does not believe in the perfectibility of man has no dedication nor any membership in literature
  • 人类已被证明具有伟大的心灵和精神——面临失败的勇气,勇敢无畏的精神,宽恕和仁爱之心。作为一名作家,必须宣扬和赞颂这些。我认为,一个作家如果不能热忱地相信人类有自我提高的能力,就不会献身于文学,也不能算是文学界的一员
