“…born at that moment when one says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .””
— C.S. Lewis (The Four Loves)

“I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there ’s a pair of us—don’t tell!
They ’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!”
— Emily Dickinson (The Complete Poems)
