A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on good writing

At the top of the ridge Jody was winded. He paused, puffing noisily. The blood pounded in his ears. Then he saw what he was looking for. Below, in one of the little clearings in the brush, lay the red pony. In the distance, Jody could see his lungs moving slowly and convulsively. And in a circle around him stood the buzzards, waiting for the moment of death they know so well.

The boys lived in a state orphanage until their teens, then they ran away together. The Lanky Crooner and Fat Rasputin in their own little road movie. The Road to God.

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on writing, hurt, upset, good writing, and anger and writing

"I know quite well that one needs ridiculous, mad situations like that; one can't write really well about anything else. WHy was that old fellow such a marvellous propaganda technician? Becuase he had so many insane, excruciating things to get excited about. You've got to be hurt and upset; otherwise you can't htink of the really good, penetrating, X-rayish phrases."
