“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself”
― Simone de Beauvoir
I could not become malicious. In fact, I could not become anything: neither bad nor good, neither a scoundrel or an honest man, neither a hero nor insect. And now I am eking out my days in my corner, taunting myself with the bitter and entirely useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot seriously become anything; that only a fool can become something - Notes From the Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky.
"Nothing in excess"
- Inscription from the temple of Apollo at Delphi.
