What's good

"The dominance of the self is not a flaw, it is an evolutionary characteristic; it is just how things are now." -Martin Amis on autobiographical fiction (and Updike) in Visiting Mrs. Nabokov

I’m a fan of narcissism. I like narcissists, as long as they can publicly demonstrate why they’re worthy of self-love.

Everything has been said, but maybe you can say something with a fresh vocabulary and intonation. Maybe people need to hear that thing again.

Hey, at least you’re not the guy on the History Channel who’s spent his life trying to figure out whether Hitler had Parkinson’s.
