John Ernst Steinbeck

John Ernst Steinbeck

was an American writer
It always seemed strange to me that 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, aquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and selfinterest are the traits of sucess. And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.More John Ernst Steinbeck quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
