„You do not create a style. You work, and develop yourself; your style is an emanation from your own being.“

—  Katherine Anne Porter American journalist, essayist, short story writer, novelist, and political activist 1890 - 1980

Writers at Work interview (1963)
Kontext: A cultivated style would be like a mask. Everybody knows it's a mask, and sooner or later you must show yourself — or at least, you show yourself as someone who could not afford to show himself, and so created something to hide behind... You do not create a style. You work, and develop yourself; your style is an emanation from your own being.

„It does not matter so much what you do. What matters is whether your soul is harmed by what you do.“

—  Albert Schweitzer French-German physician, theologian, musician and philosopher 1875 - 1965

Reverence for Life (1969)
Kontext: I do not want to frighten you by telling you about the temptations life will bring. Anyone who is healthy in spirit will overcome them. But there is something I want you to realize. It does not matter so much what you do. What matters is whether your soul is harmed by what you do. If your soul is harmed, something irreparable happens, the extent of which you won't realize until it will be too late.
