A Sorrow that Weeping Cannot Symbolize: John Steinbeck

Oranges (2.2012 by M.A. Reilly)

February 27. John Steinbeck's birthday.

In his Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Steinbeck said: "Literature is as old as speech. It grew out of human need for it, and it has not changed except to become more needed." 

Literature is critical.  Hope you'll share a work that inspires you to be better than you think you are.
