THE WORDS OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS...
|"I was not writing because of any urge
to write nor for any particular love of writing. I was writing because
I had a wife and two babies . . . . I loathed poverty and I would have
liked to put my hands on the party who said that poverty is an honorable
estate. It is an indication of inefficiency and nothing more. There is
nothing honorable or fine about it."
