Often what we, looking at a life from without, may think is trouble may not be trouble at all, but only a different way of living from that which we prefer. … It may be that an individual may willingly endure handicaps in his personal life because other things are more important to him. That sometimes is the price of genius. It is frequently through the storm and the stress of unfulfilled emotion, through trouble and unhappiness, that the great achievements of art and science are attained.

Karl De Schweinitz in The Art of Helping People Out of Trouble (1924)
