A Quote by Nelson Algren on belief, impossibility, love, meaning, and risk

The Impossible Generalized Man is the critic who believes in loving those unworthy of love as well as those worthy - yet believes this only insofar as no personal risk is entailed. Meaning he loves no one, worthy or no. This is what makes him impossible.

Nelson Algren (1909 - 1981)
