What is it that I wish to convey? I wish to convey the stream of which Fichte speaks. I wish to convey something immaterial and I have to use material means for it. I have to convey something which is inexpressible and I have to use expression. I have to convey, perhaps, something unconscious and I have to use conscious means. I know in advance that I shall not succeed and cannot succeed, and therefor all I can do is to get nearer and nearer in some asymptotic approach; I do my best, but it is an agonising struggle in which if I am an artist, or indeed for the German romantics any kind of self-conscious thinker, I am engaged for the whole life.
From Isaiah Berlin’s “The Roots of Romanticism”

It’s an odd thing, but anyone who disappears is said to be seen in San Francisco. It must be a delightful city and possess all the attractions of the next world.
