Personal Quote:

[on free will] The man who arrives young believes that he exercises his will because his star is shining. The man who only asserts himself at 30 has a balanced idea of what will-power and fate have each contributed. The one who gets there at 40 is liable to put the emphasis on will alone. See more »

Trivia:

For about a year and a half in the late 1930s, he rented a house from Edward Everett Horton on Horton's "Belly Acres" estate in Encino. The area where the house was is now part of the 101 highway (westbound lane). Fitzgerald paid 200 dollars a month rent. See more »
