Chesterton: The Maniac

door Prachtige Pjotr

Shall I tell you where the men are, who believe most in themselves? For I can tell you. I know of men who believe in themselves more colossally than Napoleon of Caesar. I now where flames the fixed star of certainty and success. I can guide you to the thrones of the Supermen. The men who really believe in themselves are all in lunatic asylums.
