    Most people sell their souls, and live with a good conscience on the proceeds.
    Logan Pearsall Smith (1865–1946)

    However intense my experience, I am conscious of the presence and criticism of a part of me, which, as it were, is not a part of me, but a spectator, sharing no experience, but taking note of it, and that is no more I than it is you.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
