Elegance is refusal.
"The roles that we construct are constructed because we feel that they will help us to survive and also, of course, because they fulfill something in our personalities; and one does not, therefore, cease playing a role simply because one has begun to understand it. All roles are dangerous. The world tends to trap and immobilize you in the role that you play; and it is not always easy – in fact it is always extremely hard – to maintain a kind of watchful, mocking distance between oneself as one appears to be and oneself as one actually is."
