So said my husband, as he sorted through all the high school, college and law school notes and papers that we were still storing in the attic. He finally dumped the notes, but kept all the papers. "After all," he said, "I worked hard on those, and besides, I'm just so good."
I, on the other hand, being neither as good a writer, nor the egomaniac of the family, only saved my papers from my major and from grad school. Sadly, my German reading capabilities have slipped so far in the last ten years that I couldn't tell whether my papers had any brilliant insights in them or not.
