Morgan Weistling painting
If any ambitious man have a fancy to revolutionize,
at one effort, the universal world of human thought,
human opinion, and human sentiment, the opportunity
is his own- the road to immortal renown lies straight,
open, and unencumbered before him. All that he has to
do is to write and publish a very little book.
Its title should be simple- a few plain words-
My Heart Laid Bare. But- this little book must be
true to its title.
Edgar Allan Poe
