An interesting quote I heard, something for, especially the writers, to think about, and you tell me, if it's not as true today as it was when it was spoken. I know what I think. ;) Read on, and enjoy.
"Our tragedy today is a general and universal physical fear so long sustained by now that we can even bear it. There are no longer problems of the spirit. There is only the question: When will I be blown up? Because of this, the young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat."
