Quotes from Wittgenstein's Nephew. ― Thomas Bernhard, quote from Wittgenstein's Nephew “For before I met my friend there had been a period when I was prey to a morbid melancholy, if not depression, when I really believed I was lost, when for years I did no proper work but spent most of my days in a state of total apathy and often came. Wittgenstein’s Nephew is a recollection of the author’s friendship with Paul Wittgenstein, the nephew of Ludwig Wittgenstein and a member of the wealthy Viennese Wittgenstein family.
