Weekend Quote #35

“I may turn out an intellectual, but I'll never write anything but mediocre poetry.”

Still from This Side of Paradise by Fitzgerald. This is a quote by Amory Blaine, which is himself a pretty good poet, and better reader.

This quote has nothing to do with except for the fact that I also feel that I won't be able to write anything beyond mediocre – be it poetry or prose. The more I read, the more I feel worthless. Those great people – Shakespeare, Pushkin, Dumas, Hugo, and other great writers – make me feel like a dwarf among giants.

Okay. Something too much of this. That's the quote I want to share with you, and please share yours with me. Have a nice weekend.
