Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.

No matter who I play, it's me.

“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”

He didn’t say any more, but we’ve always been unusually communicative in a reserved way, and I understood that he meant a great deal more than that. In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores. The abnormal mind is quick to detect and attach itself to this quality when it appears in a normal person, and so it came about that in college I was unjustly accused of being a politicianbecause I was privy to the secret griefs of wild, unknown men. Most of the confidences were unsought — frequently I have feigned sleep, preoccupation, or a hostile levity when I realized by some unmistakable sign that an intimate revelation was quivering on the horizonfor the intimate revelations of young men, or at least the terms in which they express them, are usually plagiaristic and marred by obvious suppressions. Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope. I am still a little afraid of missing something if I forget that, as my father snobbishly suggested, and I snobbishly repeat, a sense of the fundamental decencies is parcelled out unequally at birth.

And, after boasting this way of my tolerance, I come to the admission that it has a limit. Conduct may be founded on the hard rock or the wet marshes …


― The Great Gatsby, Frances Scott Fitzgerald



„Kad sam bio mlađi i povredljiviji, otac mi je dao jedan savet, o kome otada često razmišljam.

― Kad god osetiš potrebu da o nekom sudiš ― rekao mi je ― pomisli samo na to da svi ljudi na ovome svetu nisu u životu imali ona preimućstva koja si imao ti.

Rekao mi je samo to, ali nas dvojica smo se uvek neobično dobro razumevali i s malo reči, tako da sam i tom prilikom shvatio i sve ono drugo što je time hteo da kaže. I zato sam otada sklon da svoje mišljenje zadržavam za sebe, a ta moja navika mi je dosad otvorila mnoge neobične prirode i učinila me žrtvom nemalog broja poznatih gnjavatora. Kad takvu osobinu poseduje normalan čovek, nastrane prirode je brzo otkriju i prikače se uz njega; i tako, dok sam bio u koledžu, nepravedno su me optuživali da sam veliki lisac, jer meni su svoje nevolje otkrivali obesni mladići koji se ničim naročitim nisu isticali. Pošto me većina tih ispovesti nije zanimala, često sam se, kad bih na horizontu primetio nesumnjivo približavanje poverljive ispovesti, pravio da spavam, da sam prezauzet poslom, ili bih jednostavno postajao neprijateljski raspoložen; jer poverljivo saopštenje mladog čoveka, ili bar način na koji je ono iskazano, obično deluje plagijatorski i očigledno neiskreno. Ako nekom ne iznesete svoj sud onda je to za onog koji očekuje da ga čuje, stvar beskonačne nade. No ipak se pomalo bojim da ću nešto propustiti ako ne kažem ― kako je to moj otac filistarski nagovestio, a ja filistarski ponavljam ― da se ljudima smisao za osnovnu pristojnost još prilikom rođenja ne dodeljuje ravnomerno.
I pošto sam se lepo razmetao svojim smislom za trpeljivost, dolazim do priznanja da i trpeljivost ima granice. Čovekovo držanje može da bude zasnovano na tvrdim stenama ili vlažnim močvarama karaktera…“
