"I do not write to earn a living or to build a reputation. I write to
battle enemies.

"Who are they? Every outdated traditional notion, every irrational system
that stands in the way of social progress and human development, and every
instance of cruelty in the face of love. These are my great enemies.

"My pen is alight and my body aflame. Until both burn down to ash, my love
and my hate will remain here in the world."


(1905- )
