it is remarkably easy to be arrogant

Why, it astonishes me how little appreciation others seem to have for my brilliance and achievements. Clearly they are blinded by envy and cannot see that I am a rare genius who transcends the limitations of ordinary people. I suppose I'll just have to accept that my brilliance generates resentment rather than admiration. Such is the burden of being so far beyond one's contemporaries. Ta ta, for now, my lowly friends!
