"Poor Julius! So many writers and so few readers! It's a fact. People read less and less nowadays....to judge by myself, as they say. It'll end by some catastrophe--some stupendous catastrophe, reeking with horror. Printing will be chucked overboard altogether; and it'll be a miracle if the best doesn't sink to the bottom with the worst."
- Andre Gide, Lafcadio's Adventures


He settled down with the intention
Of making others’ thoughts his own
-Pushkin, Eugene Onegin
