Quote of the Day (Moliere, Letting a Narcissist Speak for Himself)

“I'm clever, handsome, gracefully polite;
My waist is small, my teeth are strong and white;
As for my dress, the world's astonished eyes
Assure me that I bear away the prize.
I find myself in favor everywhere,
Honored by men, and worshipped by the fair;
And since these things are so, it seems to me
I'm justified in my complacency.”— French playwright, actor, and poet Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, AKA Moliere (1622–1673), The Misanthrope (1666), translated by Richard Wilbur (1955)
