And, oh how we have longed
For something that would
Make us feel so…“

„If I had not existed, someone else would have written me, Hemingway, Dostoevsky, all of us.“

—  William Faulkner American writer 1897 - 1962

Paris Review interview (1958)
Kontext: If I had not existed, someone else would have written me, Hemingway, Dostoevsky, all of us. Proof of that is that there are about three candidates for the authorship of Shakespeare's plays. But what is important is Hamlet and A Midsummer Night's Dream, not who wrote them, but that somebody did. The artist is of no importance. Only what he creates is important, since there is nothing new to be said. Shakespeare, Balzac, Homer have all written about the same things, and if they had lived one thousand or two thousand years longer, the publishers wouldn’t have needed anyone since.
