Really good books are not born popular

A really good book cannot be born popular – to be instantly popular means it is merely “of the moment.” A book born popular is so easy to understand that the mass man grasps it on first reading.

The really good books are ignored in their time or born misunderstood. Their heroes are not the heroes of the moment, but the heroes of the future. A really great book is never comprehended – its heroes are ineffable even to those in the future.
