Henry James
[Writer, b. 1843, New York, d. 1916, Rye, England.]

 Every good story is of course both a picture and an idea, and the more they are interfused the better the problem is solved. 
 Any point of view is interesting that is a direct impression of life. You each have an impression colored by your individual conditions; make that into a picture, a picture framed by your own personal wisdom, your glimpse of the American world.
