William Gass

“Few of the stories one has it in one’s self to speak get spoken, because the heart rarely confesses to intelligence its deeper needs; and few of the stories one has at the top of one’s head to tell get told, because the mind does not always possess the voice for them.” – William H. Gass, Preface to In the Heart of the Heart of the Country (1981)
