Happy Birthday, Émile Zola, born 2 April 1840, died 29 September 1902
Seven Quotes
If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.
Civilization will not attain to its perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest.
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.
If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.
Everything is only a dream.
There are two men inside the artist, the poet and the craftsman. One is born a poet. One becomes a craftsman.
One forges one’s style on the terrible anvil of daily deadlines.
Émile Zola was an influential French novelist, the most important example of the literary school of naturalism, and a major figure in the political liberalisation of France. After the publication of l’Assommoir, Zola became a figurehead among the literary bourgeoisie. The novel, Germinal established him as a successful author.
