File 1.47

This is a vanity I have often noted in writers; the more eminent the writer, the more pronounced this vanity is likely to be. They believe everyone should write as they do; not as well as they do, of course, but in the same fashion. In such a way do mountains long for foothills.
J. Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot, 150.
