Maurice Maeterlinck, August Strindberg, Friedrich Nietzsche and Leo Tolstoy:
They are radicals in thought, and reformers of society, inasmuch as their speculations and aspirations are relevant to practical problems of living.
And yet what gives them such a durable hold on our attention is not their particular apostolate, but the fact that their artistic impulses ascend from the subliminal regions of the inner life, and that their work brings one into touch with the hidden springs of human action and human fate.
This means, in effect, that all of them are mystics and that notwithstanding any difference, however apparently violent, of views and theories, they follow the same introspective path towards the recognition and interpretation of the law of life. From widely separated ethical premises they thus arrive at an essentially uniform appraisal of personal happiness as a function of living.
