In praise of neurotics

All the greatest things we know have come to us
from neurotics. It is they and they only who have
founded religions and created great works of art.
Never will the world be conscious of how much it
owes to them, nor above all what they have suffered
in order to bestow their gifts on it.
Marcel Proust, Guermantes Way, 1921
