covered  a talk Ray Bradbury gave.  He said a writer can  
only write from  love.  "What tosh," I thought, "what twaddle."  Now I   
would re-phrase what he said, "Without an amount of generosity on  the  
part of the writer, the task collapses for want of a possible  audience."
--- Indeed,
 
"A writer can only write from love."
 
Cfr. Geary: "A writer can only write from writing."
