Words of Wisdom from Steinbeck

And here’s a story you can hardly believe, but it’s true, and it’s funny and it’s beautiful.  There was a family of 12 and they were forced off the land.  They had no car.  They built a trailer out of junk and loaded it with their possessions.  They pulled it to the side of 66 and waited.  And pretty soon a sedan picked them up.  Five of them rode in the sedan and seven on the trailer, and a dog on the trailer.  They got to California in two jumps.  The man who pulled them fed them.  And that’s true.  But how can such courage be, and such faith in their own species?  Very few things would teach such faith.

The people in flight from the terror behind – strange things happen to them, some bitterly cruel and some so beautiful that the faith is refired forever.

From John Steinbeck’s: The Grapes of Wrath
