Letters to a young writer, 1920
Read the best English — the classical best English — and nothing but the best; live as fully as possible, mixing with all kinds of people; write constantly and burn most — or all — of what you write a month later. Don’t be in a hurry to publish or to ‘arrive.’ If you have the genuine thing in you you’ll ‘arrive’ without worrying about the exact route. See plays and pictures, listen to music.
next: George Bernard Shaw
