Peripheral Ego Overflow

USA Today has compiled a list of some of Kanye West's best quotes and put them together in the "Kanye Weest Self-confidence Generator" to help preserve for posterity one of history's greatest self-love affairs. One of my favorites:

"When someone comes up and says something like, "I am a god," everybody says "Who does he think he is?" I just told you who I thought I was. A god. I just told you. That's who I think I am."

-BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, 2013
