If you are possessed by an idea, you find it expressed everywhere, you even smell it.

Thomas Mann (1875-1955) German writer, critic, philanthropist, Nobel laureate [Paul Thomas Mann]
Tonio Kröger (1903)

Alt. trans. [B. Morgan]: "It is strange. If an idea gains control of you, you will find it expressed everywhere, you will actually smell it in the wind."
