Dorothy M Kennedy Quotes

"According to Wallace, the expectation that art amuses is a poisonous lesson for a would-be artist to grow up with, since it places all of the power with the audience, sometimes breeding resentment on the part of the author. I can see it in myself and in other young writers, he told McCaffery: this desperate desire to please coupled with a kind of hostility to the reader. Wallace expressed his hostility by writing unwieldy sentences, refusing to fulfill readers expectations, and bludgeoning the reader with data--all strategies he used to wrestle back some of the power held by modern audiences."

Quotes About Evil In Our World

"Mankind without truth, without God-given morals...has strength...can think...can feel things emotionally–but if he isnt given a good, solid standard for right and wrong, then theres nothing to keep him from using strength and reason and feelings in selfish...even destructive ways...We wonder why people do such evil things, why theres so much violence in the world, why people rob and cheat and betray each other. But when we erase truth from our thinking and say theres no right or wrong except for what each person thinks is right or wrong, well, we get the world we deserve...when theres no truth that applies to everyone, then theres no way to argue for the rightness or wrongness of anything..." - Author: Frank Peretti
