Excerpt from Farmington
Would be only a commonplace assumption of a modesty that I do not really have. It is most natural that the personal pronoun should stand as the first word of this tale, for I cannot remember a time when my chief thoughts and emotions did not concern myself, or were not in some way related to myself. I look back through the years that have passed, and find that the first consciousness of my being and the I hazy indistinct memories of my childhood are all about myself, what the world, and its men and its women, and its beasts and its plants, meant to me. This feeling is all there is of the past and all there is of the present.
