In the most absolute tranquility,
Or in the midst of tumultuous events,
In safety or danger,
In innocence or corruption,
We are a crowd of others.
And this crowd is certainly a blessing for literature.

– Elena Ferrante, Italian Novelist

                    1. But good to know.
                      An anecdote here:

                      I met this distant relative of mine at a wedding. Her pet name was lovely.
                      Now, someone said to her, you look lovely.
                      She proudly replied, because I am lovely.
                      And then we were like laughing wildly.
