“I guess there is no worse thing for a writer than to get the idea that his work is important. It seems to me it would make for an ‘important’ or pompous tone. I don’t know whether it has got me or not but I’m working on something now that certainly isn’t important yet is very difficult, a little study in humility.”

–John Steinbeck, in a letter about what was to become Of Mice and Men.
