The Woman Without Qualities

"[S]He is gifted, strong-willed, open-minded, fearless, tenacious, dashing, circumspect—why quibble, suppose we grant h[er] all those qualities—yet [s]he has none of them! They have made h[er] what [s]he is, they have set h[er]course for h[er], and yet they don't belong to h[er]." (Musil - The [Wo]Man Without Qualities)
