Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

“Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void, but out of chaos; the materials must, in the first place, be afforded: it can give form to dark, shapeless substances, but cannot bring into being the substance itself.”


Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Frankenstein
