The union, it was felt, was the more pregnant the more each party could contribute from previous sexual and spiritual intimacy with others.
He suffers from one great literary defect, which is often found in lonely Geniuses: he never knows when to stop. Lonely people are apt to fall in love with the sound of their own voice, as Narcissus fell in love with his reflection, not out of conceit but out of despair of finding another who will listen and respond.wystan hugh auden

The major work of the world is not done by Geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.
I'd like to go back to Buffy, but I've been in a coma, I've jumped off a building, I've been in prison - how many other ways can they bring me back? But those guys are Geniuses, so who knows?eliza dushku
