American Novelist, Artist
1900 - 1948
The heart is stronger than we think and able to recover from some of the most painful sorrows. People through the centuries have seen and heard some of the ugliest behavior of mankind from starvation to murder to genocide. And writers and artists have produced great work out of this pain. When I was in college in the midst of the Vietnam war and the civil rights movement, I thought the world would explode within five years. More the forty years later the earth still circles the sun and men and women continue to suffer and survive. How much can your heart hold? How much pain have you suffered? How much love have you given? How much of your heart can you see in your work?
