Nick, ever conscious of the way he is being perceived, reflects on the images that people choose to portray in the world—constructed, sometimes plagiarized roles that we present as our personalities.

"That virtue we appreciate is as much ours as another's. We see so much only as we possess." - Henry David Thoreau
