What I hope...

I will say boldly: "This is what I have done, what I have thought, what I was. I have told the good and bad with equal frankness. I have neither omitted anything bad, nor interpoled anything good...I have shown myself as I was: mean and contemptible, good, high-minded and sublime, according as it was one with the other. I have unveiled my inmost being even as Thou hast seen it, O Eternal Being."

Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Confessions, Book I
[The Years 1712-1719]
