R. Musil – The Man Without Qualities

For a man’s possibilities, plans, and feel-
ings must first be hedged in by prejudices, traditions, obstacles, and

barriers of all sorts, like a lunatic in his straitjacket, and only then can
whatever he is capable of doing have perhaps some value, substance,
and staying power.

* G. Dore – Idylls of the King
