“Payment and reserved copyright are at bottom the ruin of literature.  Only he who writes entirely for the sake of what he has to say writes anything worth writing.  It’s as if there were a curse on money: every writer writes badly as soon as he starts writing for gain.” – Arthur Schopenhauer, “On Books and Writing” (trans. Hollingdale)
