(Surprise not a Wilde.)


I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all.
~ Richard Wright, American Hunger, 1977

    It reminds me of the way we write and submit. Once we're published it will seem even more so.

    It did pack a lot of emotional power and resonated with me.
