Commonplace

“My first short story was harshly denounced by one particular critic. I brooded and made caustic remarks about the man. Then one day I reread the story and realized he had been correct. It was shallow and badly constructed. I never forgot the incident, and years later, when the Luftwaffe was bombing London, I shone a light on the critic’s house.”
–Woody Allen, “Reminiscences: Places and People,” Side Effects (1980)
