Two of mankind's most horrible enemies were granted to me as an inheritance . . . tuberculosis and mental illness. . . . A mother who died young gave me a weakness for tuberculosis; an overly nervous father, so pietistically religious as to be almost insane . . . gave me the seeds of insanity. . . . Sickness followed me through my entire childhood and youth . . . And those I loved most died, one after the other.—Edvard Munch1(p14,15)
