    have vitality enough of knowing enough of what you
    mean, somebody and sometime and sometimes a great
    many will have to realize that you know what you mean
    and so they will agree that you mean what you know,
    what you know you mean, which is as near as anybody
    can come to understanding any one.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    If you need a certain vitality you can only supply it yourself, or there comes a point, anyway, when no one’s actions but your own seem dramatically convincing and justifiable in the plot that the number of your days concocts.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
