"All the potential selves we can admire stop short of what we are, and this is true however little we may be satisfied with what we are."

(Hugh Kenner, "The Cubist Portrait", in Approaches to Joyce’s "Portrait": Ten Essays, ed. Thomas F. Staley and Bernard Benstock ([Pittsburgh]: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1976))
