A case of Inordinate Self-Esteem

No doubt we all have encountered people very full of themselves who think the world revolves around them and everyone should bow to their magnificence. I found this comment in an 18th century book that expresses this very well. Note it is very old and could be any race of people, it was just the way things were written back them;

Some Frenchmen who landed on the coast of Guinea, found a negro prince seated under a tree on a block of wood for his throne, and three or four negroes, armed with wooden spears, for his guards. His sable majesty anxiously inquired; "Do they talk much of me in France?"

I think its hilarious and well stated.
