"All interesting people are egoists, perhaps; but it is not in itself desirable. I like the ones who are clear-eyed; but how I hate the average! How I loathe these people; I feel about them that unnatural repressions have forced them into unnatural assertions. Yet also there is no otherwordly, dreamy side to them. God forbid, let me despise strongly a person rather than think of them average. The average is a very queer study: humble, aspiring and without illusions. I seem to have no time for that at all."
