"It is said that Sartre drank thirty cups of coffee a day in order to function correctly. It is also said that Philip K. Dick used vast amounts of speed. Picasso had a lot of sex. Bandelaire surprisingly relied on routine, whilst Magritte preferred suburbia. Charles Dickens was spurred on by deadlines. Mozart liked solitude. Some artists work late at night, others early in the morning. Some are quiet, some talk a lot. Many drink a lot. Clearly the whole issue of inspiration is unclear."
