My favorite John Steinbeck quotes
Man is the only kind of varmint who sets his own trap, baits it, then steps in it.
It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure on the world.
If you're in trouble, or hurt or need - go to the poor people. They're the only ones that'll help - the only ones.
Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.
I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man has no dedication nor any membership in literature.
