F. Scott Fitzgerald Saying: Through all he said, even through his appalling sentimentality, I was reminded of something-an elusive rhythm, a fragment of lost words, that I heard somewhere a long time ago.

Quote about F. Scott Fitzgerald: To have something to say is a question of sleepless nights and worry and endless ratiocination of subject - of endless trying to dig out the essential truth, the essential justice.

But if you have talent without the conscience, you are just one of many thousands of journalists.
