Are there many selves? Is there a true self? Are you the one you choose? Or are you the one that chooses you?
These and other age-old questions are answered by this collection of pithy sayings and witty rejoinders from the likes of William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Peter Sellers, Jean Paul-Sartre, Gertrude Stein, Carl Jung, Marilyn Monroe, and many more of history's most introspective—and, perhaps, narcissistic—writers, poets, philosophers, musicians, comedians, actors, and politicians.
