From Bernhard's autobiography, Gathering Evidence, which ends at his 19th year, at which point he was sick of it and dropped the project:
"When I am writing I read nothing, and when I am reading I write nothing. For long periods I read and write nothing, finding both equally repugnant."
Gathering Evidence: A Memoir, tr. David McLintock (New York: Knopf, 1985; Vintage, 1994), p. 205.
