Sly Sargent

John Singer Sargent once found himself seated next to an effusive female admirer at a dinner party. "Oh, Mr. Sargent," the young woman gushed, "I saw your latest painting and kissed it because it was so much like you."

"And did it kiss you in return?" Sargent asked. "Why, no..." "Then," he replied with a sly smile, "it was not like me."
