Quote by Natalie Clifford Barney
Most virtue is a demand for greater seduction.
This quote suggests that often what is considered virtuous behavior or actions is a means of acquiring more power of attraction or influence over others. It implies that people often adopt virtuous qualities or engage in virtuous actions not purely out of genuine moral values, but with a hidden agenda to manipulate or persuade others. In essence, the quote implies that the pursuit of virtue can sometimes be driven by a desire to gain advantage or seduce others into compliance or admiration.
I was born left-handed, but I was made to use my other hand. When I was writing 'Famished Road,' which was very long, I got repetitive stress syndrome. My right wrist collapsed, so I started using my left hand. The prose I wrote with my left hand came out denser, so later on I had to change it.
