The Comic Art of George Herriman
You have written truth, you friends of the "shadows," yet be not
harsh with "Krazy." He is but a shadow himself caught in the web of
this mortal skein. We call him "Cat." We call him "Crazy." Yet he is
neither. At some time will he ride away to you, people of the twilight.
His password will be the echoes of a vesper bell, his coach a zephyr
from the west. Forgive him, for you will understand him no better than we
who linger on this side of the pale.
-- George Herriman, 1917
