Quotable | Alive!

Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

-- William Saroyan, (1908-1981) American author whose stories celebrated optimism in the middle of trials and difficulties of the Depression-era. Saroyan worked tirelessly to perfect a prose style, that was full of zest of for life and was seemingly impressionistic. The style became known as 'Saroyanesque.' His memory, style, and works are celebrated by the William Saroyan Society.
