There is nothing in the world that I loathe more than group activity, that communal bath where the hairy and slippery mix in a multiplication of mediocrity. ___Vladimir Nabokov
This quote has intrigued my mind. Although I consider myself a mediocre, I would not like to be lost in the sea of mediocrity. But what Vladimir has said, is a proof of his passion for excellence and his self-consciousness. Isn't it?
I need to think more on this and then talk/write. But surely, this is a thought to ponder over, worth a deep analysis. There are more dimensions to this statement than the apparent ones, including intra-personal, interpersonal, and social perspective . What say!
Let me come back to share my understanding of it.
