"Every compulsion is put upon writers
to become safe, polite, obedient, and sterile.
In protest, I declined election to the
National Institute of Arts and Letters some years ago,
and now I must decline the Pulitzer Prize."
(1885-1951) American novelist, short-story writer, playwright, Nobel Prize in Literature (1930)
