Theodore Dreiser   Category: Art

Assure a man that he has a soul and then frighten him with old wives' tales as to what is to become of him afterward, and you have hooked a fish, a mental slave.
Theodore Dreiser   Category:

Theodore Dreiser   Category: Love

Theodore Dreiser   Category:

Theodore Dreiser   Category:

Theodore Dreiser   Category:

Theodore Dreiser   Category:
