I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see. Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I've ever known.
"There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature."— William Upski Wimsatt (via impetrate)
