Happy Birthday to Pearl S. Buck—winner of the 1938 Nobel Prize for Literature! She also won the Pulitzer in 1932 for her best-selling novel The Good Earth.
“There was only this perfect sympathy of movement, of turning this earth of theirs over and over to the sun, this earth which formed their home and fed their bodies and made their gods…Some time, in some age, bodies of men and women had been buried there, houses had stood there, had fallen, and gone back into the earth. So would also their house, some time, return into the earth, their bodies also. Each had his turn at this earth. They worked on, moving together-together-producing the fruit of this earth.” —The Good Earth
