"I have found no other justification for my life except this effort to create. For almost all the rest,I have failed. And if this doesn't justify me, my life won't deserve absolution."
"I do not desire anything other than what I have. My misfortune, and my punishment, is to be unable to enjoy what I have."
Whoever gives nothing has nothing. The greatest misfortune is not to be unloved, but not to love."
