"William Saroyan wrote a great play (The Time of Your Life) on this theme, that purity of heart is the one success worth having."


“I like William Saroyan, the writer. I read his plays when I was, like 22. And he said one line talking about his work. He was asked ‘Why do you write?’ He said ‘because it’s the only way I chose to survive’. And that was literally in front of me going through rejection year after year.” — DUSTIN HOFFMAN
