“Man is least himself when he speaks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
I like that one, though I'm not sure what Oscar Wilde would think about the veneer of online dating self-summaries. Take it as you will, then. I love my life. I'm extremely lucky to have it, but worked my off at the same time to get here. I work in an ER. My job is wild, absurd, difficult, occasionally hilarious and sometimes deals in life-and-death. Performing the job is, itself, a disease that can only be cured by whiskey. But I am really good at it, which tends to balance the scales.
