"Writing reminds us that we are alive, and that it's a gift and a privelege to be alive, not a right. We must earn life once it has been awarded us. Life asks for rewards back because it has favored us with animation. So while our art cannot, as we wish it could, save us from wars, privation, envy, greed, old age or death, it can revitalize us amidst it all."
Dal libro "Lo Zen nell'arte di scrittura " di Ray Bradbury
