Hans Andersen

“What annoyed him most was not so much the loss of his shadow, but the knowledge that there was already a story about a man without a shadow. All the people at home knew that story.”

Hans Christian Andersen (Odense 1805 – Kopenhagen 1875), The Shadow, Skyggen, (1847), vertaling Jean Hersholt
