Quote from Truman Capote
"More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones." I wonder what Truman Capote meant by the use of the statement. Besides the literal meaning of the statement, how did it apply to his own life and experience with Perry Smith?
I take it to mean a lot of things, but mostly it boils down to, "Be careful for what you wish for. You might just get it." I wonder what Capote was wishing for and got but then later regretted receiving.
Maybe Truman Capote found this revelation when the experience of being with Perry Smith overtook him. It was a blessing to get the story from Perry, but then ultimately, the emotion that resided within him afterwords soured the experience.
