“Compassion is not weakness, and concern for the unfortunate is not socialism.”
Hubert H. Humphrey

Irwin Shaw
“An absolutely necessary part of a writer's equipment, almost as necessary as talent, is the ability to stand up under punishment, both the punishment the world hands out and the punishment he inflicts upon himself.”
Irwin Shaw

Robert F. Kennedy
“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events.

Robert F. Kennedy

John Updike
“Celebrity is a mask that eats into the face.”
John Updike, Self-Consciousness

Truman Capote
“You can't blame a writer for what the characters say.”
