TT: Almanac

"A good stylist should have narcissistic enjoyment as he works. He must be able to objectivize his work to such an extent that he catches himself feeling envious and has to jog his memory to find that he is himself the creator. In short, he must display that highest degree of objectivity which the world calls vanity."

Karl Kraus, Beim Wort genommen (trans. Harry Zohn)
