"Writers may be classified as meteors, planets, and fixed stars. A meteor makes a striking effect for a moment...Planets and wandering stars last a much longer time...[but]...their path is one of change and movement, and with the circuit of a few years their tale is told. Fixed stars are the only ones that are constant; their position in the firmament is secure; they shine with a light of their own; their effect today is the same as it was yesterday...They belong not to one system, one nation only, but to the universe."
-- Arthur Schopenhauer
