William Faulkner famous quote #122

All of us have failed to match our dream of perfection. I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. If I could write all my work again Im convinced I could do it better. This is the healthiest condition for an artist. Thats why he keeps working trying again he believes each time that this time he will do it bring it off. Of course he wont.
