Emile zola, the masterpiece 2 likes Dreyfus friend is innocent. I stake my life on it - my honor! At this solemn moment, in the presence of this tribunal which is the representative of human justice, before you, gentlemen of the jury, who are the very incarnation of the country, before the whole of France, before the whole world, i swear that Dreyfus. By my forty years of work, by the authority that this toil may have given me, i swear that Dreyfus is innocent. By all I have now, by the name i have made for myself, by my works which have helped for the expansion of French literature, i swear that Dreyfus is innocent. May all that melt away, may my works perish if Dreyfus be not innocent!
All seems against me - the two Chambers, the civil authority, the military authority, the most widely-circulated journals, the public opinion which they have poisoned. And I have for me only an ideal of truth and justice. But i am quite calm; I shall conquer. I was determined that my country should not remain the victim of lies and injustice. I may be condemned here. The day will come when France will thank me for having helped to save her honor.
Emile zola, an open letter to French President Felix faure on the scandal known as the Dreyfuss Affair, "J'accuse! 13, 1898 2 likes have you ever reflected that posterity may not be the faultless dispenser of justice that we dream of? One consoles oneself for being insulted and denied, by reyling on the equity of the centuries to come; just as the faithful endure all the abominations of this earth in the firm belief of another life, in which each will be rewarded according to his. But suppose paradise exists no more for the artist than it does for the catholic, suppose that future generations prolong the misunderstanding and prefer amiable little trifles to vigorous works! What a sell it would be, eh?
To have led a convict's life-to have screwed oneself down to one's work-all for a mere delusion! Emile zola, the masterpiece 2 likes From the moment I start a new novel, life's just one endless torture. The first few chapters may go fairly well and I may feel there's still a chance to prove my worth, but that feeling soon disappears and every day i feel less and less satisfied. I begin to say the book's no good, far inferior to my earlier ones, until i've wrung torture out of every page, every sentence, every word, and the very commas begin to look excruciatingly ugly. Then, when it's finished, what a relief! Not the blissful delight of the gentleman who goes into ecstasies over his own production, but the resentful relief of a porter dropping a burden that's nearly broken his back.
