I feel that America is essentially against the artist, that the enemy of America is the artist, because he stands for individuality and creativeness, and that’s un-American somehow.

where you imitate the shade of my mother

The key is in the window, the key is in the sunlight at the window – I have the key – Get married Allen don’t take drugs – the key is in the bars, in the sunlight in the window.

Fitzgerald on Storytelling and Life

"Mostly we authors must repeat ourselves - that's the truth. We have two or three great and moving experiences in our lives, experiences so great and moving that it doesn't seem at the time that anyone else has been so caught up and pounded and dazzled and astonished and beaten and broken and rescued and illuminated and rewarded and humbled in just that way ever before. Then we learn our trade, well or less well, and we tell our two or three stories - each time in a new disguise - maybe ten times, maybe a hundred, as long as people will listen."

-F. Scott Fitzgerald-
