A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on story, world, humans, caught, life, lives, thoughts, hungers, ambitions, avarice, cruelty, kindness, generosity, good, evil, well, and ill

"I believe that there is only one story in the world...Humans are caught--in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too--in a net of good and evil...A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean question: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well--or ill?"

John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968)
