John Steinbeck was an American Pulitzer Prize winning writer who will be remembered for his truly unforgettable contributions to the literary world, including but not limited to… The Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden, and Of Mice and Men.
This man was a living, breathing classic quote making machine. In other words… if you follow PhiloSwag you’ll see more from this man in the coming months.
The city I currently call home just received its first “real snow,” hence why I choose today’s Quote with Philosophical Swag.
“Literature is as old as speech. It grew out of human need for it, and it has not changed except to become more needed.”
– Snagged from his Nobel Prize acceptance speech in 1962
For those wondering, William Shakespeare’s Richard III also said,
“Now is the winter of our discontent /
Made glorious summer by this sun [or son] of York,” .
