Sobre mim"I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there's a pair of us?
Don't tell! they'd advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one's name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!" - Emily Dickinson

And as a Nobody, I aspire to be a Nothing...

(anecdote from In Through The Labyrinth, by Peter Occhiogrosso)

"The highest rabbi of the city...comes to the synagogue on High Holy Days. When the Ark is opened he kneels down, prostrates himself, and says,'O, Lord,Thou art everything, I am nothing.' The local rabbi sees the big rabbi doing this, so he kneels down beside him and says, 'O, Lord, Thou art everything, I am nothing.'
The Cantor sees both of them, he kneels down and says, O Lord, Thou art everything, I am nothing.'
Then the little janitor - the shammash, the smallest officer in the entire establishment- sees what's going on. He kneels down and says 'O Lord, Thou art everything, I am nothing.'
So the cantor pokes the rabbi and says, 'Look who thinks he's a nothing!'"
