Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.
In a morbid condition of the brain, dreams often have a singular actuality, vividness and extraordinary semblance of reality. At times, monstrous images are created, but the setting and the whole picture are so truth-like and filled with details so delicate, so unexpected, but so artistically consistent, that the dreamer, were he an artist like Pushkin or Turgenev even, could never have invented them in the waking state. Such sick dreams always remain long the memory and make a powerful impression on the overwrought and deranged nervous system.
