    It is a law of life that human beings, even the geniuses among them, do not pride themselves on their actual achievements but that they want to impress others, want to be admired and respected because of things of much lower import and value.

    Whilst all the land was ringed with bristling arms
    And flames laid waste our world,
    All that was left me was a little garden
    And thou within it, my beloved, my comrade.
    —Stefan Zweig (18811942)
