Romain Rolland: "There are no living beings but those who create."

There is no joy except in creation. There are no living beings but those who create. All the rest are shadows, hovering over the earth, strangers to life. All the joys of life are the joys of creation: love, genius, action.

--Romain Rolland (1866-1944), Nobel Prize winner, in "Lightning Strikes Christophe".

Rolland and Gandhi in Villeneuve, Switzerland, 1931.
