Introduction It is immoral not to tell. – Camus It gives me great pleasure indeed to see the stubbornness of an incorrigible nonconformist warmly acclaimed. – Albert Einstein The only way out is the way through. – Howard Nemerov In dreams begin responsibilities. –Delmore Schwartz Almost everything conspicuously great is great in defiance, has come into being in defiance of affliction and pain, poverty, destitution, bodily weakness, vice, passion, and a thousand other obstructions. Forbearance in the fact of fate, beauty constant under torture, are not merely passive. They are a positive achievement, an explicit triumph. –Thomas Mann, Death in Venice Run mad as often as you chuse, but do not faint.--Jane Austen
