Trial by Torture

"Now there may be people who move easily into New York without travail, but most I have talked to about it have had some kind of trial by torture before acceptance. And the acceptance is a double thing. It seems to me that the city finally accepts you just as you finally accept the city."
John Steinbeck, America and Americans and Selected Nonfiction
