I know only that what is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.
You see, I am trying in all my stories to get the feeling of the actual life across - not to just depict life - or criticize it - but to actually make it alive. So that when you have read something by me, you actually experience the thing. You can't do this without putting in the bad and the ugly as well as what is beautiful.
I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.
