"You have no idea how promising the world begins to look once you have decided to have it all for yourself.  And how much healthier your decisions are once they become entirely selfish.  It is the simplest thing in the world to decide what you want to do - or, rather, what you don't want to do - and just to act on that... Within your own scope you can accomplish much more.  You can be self-centered, and that is a marvelous lesson to learn.  To assume your own centrality may mean an entirely new life."

- Hotel du Lac, Anita Brookner
