William Faulkner
Universal Truths
printer friendly version
He [the writer] must teach himself that the basest of all things
is to be afraid; and, teaching himself that, forget it forever,
leaving no room in his workshop for anything but the old verities
and truths of the heart, the old universal truths lacking which
any story is ephemeral and doomed-- love and honor and pity
and pride and compassion and sacrifice.

(Speech upon receiving the Nobel Prize in Stockholm,
December 10, 1950)
