Insight for the Weekend:

From Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook:
 
"People don't mind immoral messages.  They don't mind art which says that murder is good, cruelty is good, sex for sex's sake is good.  They like it, provided the message is wrapped up a little.  And they like messages saying that murder is bad, cruelty is bad, and love is love is love.  What they can't stand is to be told it all doesn't matter, they can't stand formlessness" (454).
