A gentleman of the better type is, in our opinion, only he who entertains a fair number of vain and foolish ideas about himself, and who above all imagines that his nose is better than any other good and sensible human nose whatsoever.

—Robert Walser (1878-1956), “The Walk” (translated from German by Christopher Middleton)
