Excruciating medium. Demonstrates that brevity does not protect against dullness.

A specialist is someone who does everything else worse.
I'm not Jack Nicholson. I'm not Brando. But I do mumble.
There comes a point in many people's lives when they can no longer play the role they have chosen for themselves. When that happens, we are like actors finding that someone has changed the play.
The Beatles exist apart from my Self. I am not really Beatle George. Beatle George is like a suit or shirt that I once wore on occasion and until the end of my life people may see that shirt and mistake it for me.
It is always the same: once you are liberated, you are forced to ask who you are.
There is no private life which has not been determined by a wider public life.
Who could deny that privacy is a jewel? It has always been the mark of privilege, the distinguishing feature of a truly urbane culture. Out of the cave, the tribal teepee, the pueblo, the community fortress, man emerged to build himself a house of his own with a shelter in it for himself and his diversions. Every age has seen it so. The poor might have to huddle together in cities for need's sake, and the frontiersman cling to his neighbors for the sake of protection. But in each civilization, as it advanced, those who could afford it chose the luxury of a withdrawing-place.
Privacy is not something that I'm merely entitled to, it's an absolute prerequisite.
Isn't privacy about keeping taboos in their place?
In matters of truth the fact that you don't want to publish something is, nine times out of ten, a proof that you ought to publish it.
Publicity in women is detestable. Anonymity runs in their blood. The desire to be veiled still possesses them. They are not even now as concerned about the health of their fame as men are, and, speaking generally, will pass a tombstone or a signpost without feeling an irresistible desire to cut their names on it.
Sincerity: if you can fake it, you've got it made.
I is another.
When we are born we cry that we are come.. to this great stage of fools.
Public opinion, a vulgar, impertinent, anonymous tyrant who deliberately makes life unpleasant for anyone who is not content to the average person.
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
