Why bulls are better than literary critics

``Bulls don't run reviews. Bulls of 25 don't marry old women of 55 and expect to be invited to dinner. Bulls do not get you cited as a co:respondent in Society divorce trials. Bulls don't borrow money. Bulls are edible after they have been killed."

This according to a letter from Hemmingway to Pound that has been recently found. See here for details.
