“Exact resemblance to exact resemblance the exact resemblance as exact as a resemblance, exactly as resembling, exactly resembling, exactly in resemblance exactly a resemblance, exactly and resemblance. For this is so. Because.” 

If I told Him: A Completed Portrait of Picasso, Gertrude Stein, 1924. A poem written by Gertrude Stein while looking at a portrait of Napoleon I, by Picasso. When Gertrude Stein was presented with her finished portrait by Picasso; a work which he had begun in 1905, abandoned, then returned to it again in 1906, she commented that it looked nothing like her, Picasso replied that it was what she would become.
