Thorny Old Scott Fitzgerald


Author F. Scott Fitzgerald on idleness: “Sometimes I think that idlers seem to be a special class for whom nothing can be planned, plead as one will with them — their only contribution to the human family is to warm a seat at the common table.”

Brilliant though Fitzgerald was as a writer, his writing days were often driven by drink, so perhaps he didn’t have a passion for eating, as some folks do!
