“Anton Chekhov was a real triple threat: while we all know him best for his accomplishments as a dramaturge and an author, he also practiced medicine while making his numerous artistic achievements on the side. “Medicine is my lawful wife, and literature is my mistress,” he once wrote. That’s about as close to baller as anyone ever got in the 1800s. No wonder we still celebrate his work more than a century after his fatal bout with tuberculosis.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
