Steinbeck: A life in Letters

I.

All the goodness and the heroisms will rise up again, then be cut down again and rise up. It isn´t that the evil thing wins -it never will- but that it doesn´t die. I don´t know why we should expect it to. It seems fairly obvious that two sides of a mirror are required before one has a mirror, that two forces are necessary in man before he is a man.

II.

Spain wasn´t what we expected. I wonder what it was! It is a completely contradictory country. Everything you say or see or think is cancelled out by something else you see. It is a country about which it is impossible to make generalities.
