John Ernst Steinbeck

John Ernst Steinbeck

was an American writer
It has always seemed strange to me... the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.More John Ernst Steinbeck quotes [07/11/2011 02:07:12]
