Stefan Zweig
“Erst im Unglück weiß man wahrhaft, wer man ist.”
Stefan Zweig, Marie Antoinette: The Portrait of an Average Woman

Jack London
“It was a habit he developed, of incubating and maturing his thought upon a subject, and of then rushing into the type-writer with it.  That it did not see print was a matter a small moment with him.  The writing of it was the culminating act of a long mental process, the drawing together of scattered threads of thought and the final generalizing upon all the data with which his mind was burdened.  To write such an article was the conscious effort by which he freed his mind and made it ready for fresh material and problems.”
Jack London, Martin Eden
