The Perfect Quote for Me & My Book

When I write something I usually think it is very important
and that I am a very fine writer.
I think this happens to everyone
but there is one corner of my mind
in which I know very well what I am,
which is a small, a very small writer.
I swear I know it.
But that doesn’t matter much to me.

–Natalia Ginsburg, My Vocation (Translated by Dick Davis)

Came across that quote an hour before hiking here.
