Steinbeck – Quote

‘There is nothing so monsterous but we can belief if of ourselfs.’  John Steinbeck, The Pastures of Heaven.

From the mind of a child character within this book came this brilliant line. I’m highly fascinated by Steinbeck’s use of incorrect grammar to further the development of the child within the reader. And for me, it’s a reminder to ignore rules.
