Jeffrey Eugenides
“We stood silent. After a moment I said, "Real Geniuses never think they're geniuses."
"Who says?"
"Because why?"
"Because genius is nine-tenths perspiration. Haven't you ever heard that? As soon as you think you're a genius, you slack off. You think everything you do is so great and everything.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex
