Hjalmar Bergman was a Swedish writer and playwright.

The son of a banker in Örebro, Bergman briefly studied philosophy at Uppsala University but soon broke off his studies and took up the life of a free writer. He married Stina Lindberg, the daughter of actor and stage producer August Lindberg and Augusta Lindberg, and sister of Per Lindberg. Up to his father's death in 1915 Bergman was heavily sponsored by the family patriarch; after the old man died from a stroke it turned out that the family business had become highly indebted and Bergman was forced to start making money out of his writing and court readers in a more outgoing and more entertaining manner. He rose to the challenge and in the following ten years reached the peak of his work

“Minnet, vårt minne, är en förunderlig sak - nyckfullt, opålitligt, skämtsamt, illfundigt, pinsamt försvagande, tröstande men framför allt - oumbärligt. Vi lever genom minnet, vi lever i minnet, ingenting sätter vi - och det med rätta - så högt som ett gott minne. Hon är vår dagliga oumbärliga tjänarinna och hon blir vår härskarinna. Sviker minnet, träder strax slumpen i kraft. Man lever nyckfullt, man har saker och ting på känn. Nå ja, ibland går det ju bra även på det sättet.”
Hjalmar Bergman, Jac the Clown

“Men förvalta slanten väl, min gosse, för jag måste säga dig att tretusen kronor är inte snutna ur näsan på en tupp här i gården. Kan du en gång i framtiden betala igen, så gör det. Kan du inte - så minns, att vi har glömt.”
Hjalmar Bergman, Jac the Clown
