Writing Quote Tuesday

It’s Tuesday again!

“Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn’t matter. I’m not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn’t make us better, then what on earth is it for.”
― Alice Walker

What do you think, folks? Do you agree with Alice Walker? Can a bad person write a good book?
