art & artifice

What greater vanity exists than to see yourself reflected in the words of someone else? You cannot conquer countries or make a historical difference, but you can conquer moments and drive my pen.

A story is the closest thing to immortalization, isn't it?

You vain thing! You know I won't refuse my pen. But I can and will refuse your name; I'll use the words someone else already uttered (and not to you):

"Love the art in yourself, not yourself in the art."
