    "when we consider the sex-relation, it is hard to mention a genius who had a wife or mistress of even tolerable good character. [...] A good woman is too near that heaven of Reality which he is sworn to renounce!"

    -- Absinthe: The Green Goddess, p47-51, online: https://archive.org/details/The_International_-_Feb_1918

    Si on regarde la relation sexuelle, c'est dur de mentionner un genie qui a eu une femme ou mistresse d'un meme tolerable bon charactere. [...] Une bonne femme est trop proche au ciel de Realité qu'il a juré de renoncer!

    -- traduction francaise par IBS

    Wenn wir die sexuelle Beziehung betrachten, ist es schwer ein Genie nennen zu können, der ein Frau oder Geliebte mit einem wenigstens tolerabel gutem Charakter hatte. [...] Eine gute Frau ist zu nah an dem Himmel der Realität, von dem er sich zu distanzieren geschworen hat!

    -- deutsche Übersetzung von IBS
