Quotes 1 till 2 of 2.
English writer (ps. of Eric Blair) 1903-1950+1
Good novels are not written by orthodoxy-sniffers, nor by people who are conscience-stricken about their own orthodoxy. Good novels are written by people who are not frightened.
A. E. Housman
British poet 1859-19360
Oh who is that young sinner with the handcuffs on his wrists?
And what has he been after that they groan and shake their fists?
And wherefore is he wearing such a conscience-stricken air?
Oh they're taking him to prison for the colour of his hair.Source: Additional Poems (1937) No. 18, st. 1
