The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame: Chapter 10 (continued) - The Literature PageHo, ho! I am The Toad, the handsome, the popular, the successful Toad!' He got so puffed up with conceit that he made up a song as he walked in praise of himself, and sang it at the top of his voice, though there was no one to hear it but him. It was perhaps the most conceited song that any animal ever composed.
`The world has held great Heroes,
As history-books have showed;
But never a name to go down to fame
Compared with that of Toad!
`The clever men at Oxford
Know all that there is to be knowed.
But they none of them know one half as much
As intelligent Mr. Toad!
'The animals sat in the Ark and cried,
Their tears in torrents flowed.
Who was it said, "There's land ahead?"
Encouraging Mr. Toad!
`The army all saluted
As they marched along the road.
Was it the King? Or Kitchener?
No. It was Mr. Toad.
`The Queen and her Ladies-in-waiting
Sat at the window and sewed.
She cried, "Look! who's that HANDSOME man?"
They answered, "Mr. Toad."'
There was a great deal more of the same sort, but too dreadfully conceited to be written down. These are some of the milder verses.
I doubt it as his trend is to say he knows more than anyone else. I would be willing to bet half of college majors in any tech field were working harder problems in hs than he even knows exists. The annoyance is his flock believes him.I wonder if he meant to say that he has the names of more people than anyone else, who know something about tech? lol

Or my favorite: "Most people don't know that Lincoln was a Republican." No Donald, you're the only one who didn't know that. ffsHe seems to lack the knowledge version of object permanence. The only knowledge that exists is what he personally knows, therefore he knows more about everything than everyone else.
Like when he tried to solve healthcare, found it difficult, and stated "nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated". Most people would think "I didn't know", but to Trump that's the same as "nobody knew".
Oooh, Republicans? I can quote Republicans!Or my favorite: "Most people don't know that Lincoln was a Republican." No Donald, you're the only one who didn't know that. ffs
aM i DoInG iT rIgHt?Robert G. Ingersoll said:Art cultivates and kindles the imagination, and quickens the conscience. It is by imagination that we put ourselves in the place of another. When the whigs of that faculty are folded, the master does not put himself in the place of the slave; the tyrant is not locked in the dungeon, chained with his victim. The inquisitor did not feel the flames that devoured the martyr. The imaginative man, giving to the beggar, gives to himself. Those who feel indignant at the perpetration of wrong, feel for the instant that they are the victims; and when they attack the aggressor they feel that they are defending themselves. Love and pity are the children of the imagination.
Actually, most people are continually amazed that Lincoln could have been a Republican when they look at him and then the modern Republican party.Or my favorite: "Most people don't know that Lincoln was a Republican." No Donald, you're the only one who didn't know that. ffs
