Artificial Stimulants by πrao))) published on 2011/07/29 17:47:38 +0000 My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, the most intricate analysis, and I'm in my proper atmosphere. Then I can dispense with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave mental exultation. That is why I have chosen my own profession, or rather created it for I am the only one in the world. I take no credit in my cases. The work itself, the pleasure of finding a field for my particular powers is my highest reward. You have made the wrong diagnosis, Doctor! I have my stimulant here.
