A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #57

“I have withstood the obsession with politics because I do not believe any system will make man less cruel or less greedy. He has to do this himself, individually.”

– from “[September 1945]” in The Diary of Anais Nin: Volume Four, 1944 – 1947, edited and with a preface by Gunther Stuhlmann
