They don’t read to free themselves of guilt, to quench their thirst for rebellion, or to get rid of alienation. They still believe in God, the family, angels, devils, witches, goblins, logic, clarity, punctuation, and other such obsolete stuff…. They don’t expect their beloved writer to redeem humanity. Young as they are, they know that it is not in his power. Only the adults have such childish illusions.

Originality Is The Sum Total Of A Man’s Thinking Or Writing

Originality is not seen in single words or even in sentences. Originality is the sum total of a man’s thinking or his writing.
