The Little Men

“An age which is incapable of poetry is incapable of any kind of literature except the cleverness of a decadence. The boys can say anything, their scenes are almost tiresomely neat, they have all the facts and all the answers, but they are little men who have forgotten how to pray.”

~ Raymond Chandler, in a letter to Charles W. Morton, dated January 5, 1957
