The environment that we call society is created by past generations; we accept it, as it helps us to maintain our greed, possessiveness, illusion.
Sacrifice still exists everywhere, and everywhere the elect of each generation suffers for the salvation of the rest.
It may be that the most striking thing about members of my literary generation in retrospect will be that we were allowed to say absolutely anything without fear of punishment.
Each generation wants new symbols, new people, new names. they want to divorce themselves from their predecessors.
Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
