„I simply state that I'm a product of a versatile mind in a restless generation — with every reason to throw my mind and pen in with the radicals.“

—  F. Scott Fitzgerald American novelist and screenwriter 1896 - 1940

Quoted, This Side of Paradise (1920)
Contexto: I simply state that I'm a product of a versatile mind in a restless generation — with every reason to throw my mind and pen in with the radicals. Even if, deep in my heart, I thought we were all blind atoms in a world as limited as a stroke of a pendulum, I and my sort would struggle against tradition; try, at least, to displace old cants with new ones. I've thought I was right about life at various times, but faith is difficult. One thing I know. If living isn't seeking for the grail it may be a damned amusing game.
