Pour me

"Looking back you realize that a very special person
passed briefly through your life  -- and it was you.
It's not too late to find that person again."

-- Robert  Brault

"A face stared up at her from the mirror beside her hand.
Was that really what she looked like?
Was that really what she looked like, all sharp lines and huge silver-grey eyes?
... those extraordinary eyes ...
what memories lived in them that she could not share?"

-- P.C. Hodgell, God Stalk

"Perhaps it is impossible to understand one's own face ...
People who live in society have learned how to see themselves in mirrors
as they appear to their friends.
I have no friends."

-- Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea

"Gussie, a glutton for punishment, stared at himself in the mirror."

-- P.G. Wodehouse, Right Ho, Jeeves
