A Manifest Destiny

“Life is not so bad if you have plenty of luck, a good physique, and not too much imagination.” – Christopher Isherwood, Anglo-American novelist and translator.

The intelligent and insightful Isherwood lived and worked in Hollywood for many years, and the following comment could almost stand as a summary of both his experiences there and the history of America: “California is a tragic country – like Palestine, like every Promised Land.”
