Emile Zola, French novelist, playwright, and journalist,was a major figure in the political liberalization of France and in the exoneration of the falsely accused and convicted army officer Alfred Dreyfus, which is encapsulated in the renowned newspaper headline J’accuse. Zola was nominated for the first and second Nobel Prize in Literature in 1901 and 1902. His death from carbon monoxide poisoning may have been a murder. (Wikipedia)

If I cannot overwhelm with my quality, I will overwhelm with my quantity.
