Can you name a braggart who needs this advice from a genius?

But will never read it, nor heed it, because he neither reads nor heeds.

It has always been in my observation of human nature, that a man who has any good reason to believe in himself never flourishes himself before the faces of other people in order that they may believe in him.

–From Charles Dickens, David Copperfield
