Quick, Bit Unpleasant,Thought

Such I suppose is vanity intermingled with a dash of stupidity, there are people who seem to imagine the mere act of reading we'll say more refined writers places themselves on an equal or perhaps even higher intellectual footing than those very writers; that this level of expression or thought is their own natural intellectual level which chance or perhaps just their earlier position in the temporal sequence had allowed those writers to express those thoughts before they themselves had a chance to do so. The same self-exaltation of course goes in the various artistic fields - the relevant artist looked down on from a position on high.
