'Schulz wasn't an artist because he suffered. He suffered because he was an artist. To keep choosing art over the comforts of a normal life - to grind out a strip everyday for fifty years; to pay the very steep psychic price for this - is the opposite of damaged. Its the sort of choice that only a tower of strength and sanity can make.'
Quote from Jonathan Franzen's book The Discomfort Zone .
