Was John Steinbeck born on 1901, or 1902?
"It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second."
-- John Steinbeck, Cannery Row.
this is a quote by Steinbeck (?) which you can find quite often... but is it really in that novel...? I think if this is the case it may deserve a place here...(?)
