Kind und Schüler.
Mann's school career was NOT crowned with success - probably more to do with the Prussian military drill style of schooling than with young Tom's intelligence.

Loos said that a house has to please everyone, a work of art need please no-one. But the neighbours hated this.

Paul Klee visits Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinsky in Ainmiller Street on a snowy day in April. Maybe he got his feet wet on the way. While his shoes dry, Münter at last gets to paint his portrait.

the Conde delighted in her letters, but he thought that when he had enjoyed the style he had extracted all their richness and intention, missing (as most readers do) the whole purport of literature, which is the notation of the heart. Style is but the faintly contemptible vessel in which the bitter liquid is recommended to the world.
