Quotable quote

Came across this olden quotation, and it struck me that perhaps I should take it as my personal mantra.
"Fie upon those who hear me yet have not the wit to appreciate my greatness, for I shall spit upon their faces and continue on my merry way, unaffected by their oxen like stupidity"
Not bad, and it sounds a bit more empowering (even if in a somewhat militant way) than saying I should let things "roll off me like water off a ducks back." Yup. In my newfound crankiness I think I like it.

Except the spitting part. Eww.And a bit over the top (although...). But oxen-like stupidity? Seen plenty of that in this postdoc...
