William Butler Yeats
We all have a dinosaur deep within us just trying to get out.
Can ye fathom the ocean, dark and deep, where the mighty waves and the grandeur sweep?
It's a deep and all but certain truth about narcissistic personalities that to meet them is to love them, but to know them well is to find them unbearable. Confidence quickly curdles into arrogance; smarts turn to smugness, charm turns to smarm.
