“The world is always struggling to express itself,” he went on.  “Most people are not capable of voicing their feelings.  They depend on others.  That is what genius is for.  One man expresses their desires for them in music; another one in poetry; another one in a play.  Sometimes nature does it in a face — it makes the face representative of all desire.  That’s what has happened in your case.” – Sister Carrie
