To Put To Shame My Limping Prose

"There are so many things to say. If there was no identity no one could be governed, but everybody is governed by everybody and that is why they make no master-pieces, and also why governing has nothing to do with master-pieces. And that is why governing is occupying but not interesting, governments are occupying but not interesting because master-pieces are exactly what they are not."

From What Are Master-pieces and Why Are There So Few Of Them, Gertrude Stein
