„Every man alive in the world is a beggar of one sort or another, every last one of them, great and small.“

—  William Saroyan, Context: Every man alive in the world is a beggar of one sort or another, every last one of them, great and small. The priest begs God for grace, and the king begs something for something. Sometimes he begs the people for loyalty, sometimes he begs God to forgive him. No man in the world can have endured ten years without having begged God to forgive him. "The Beggars" in The William Saroyan Reader (1958)

—  Northrop Frye Canadian literary critic and literary theorist 1912 - 1991
Context: In literature you don't just read one poem or novel after another, but enter into a complete world of which every work of literature forms part. This affects the writer as much as it does the reader.
