Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.
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.
That is what we are supposed to do when we are at our best - make it all up - but make it up so truly that later it will happen that way.
Pound's crazy. All poets are. They have to be. You don't put a poet like Pound in the loony bin.
