"Many of the young writers or aspirants to literature consider eroticism as a sure way to quick recognition. This type of literature is quite difficult to write, because between eroticism, pornography and a public toilet the differences are minimal, but essential, and unless you're a very educated person, with vast readings, instead of erotic literature you get to write pornographic, or toilet literature. It is not enough to have the courage to write down four or three-letter words, you need a conscience to use them in such a way that they do not become the target of your writing, but absolutely necessary instruments in expressing a feeling or a truth."
