Quotes from Artemis Fowl
Confidence is ignorance. If you’re feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know.
If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.
The problem is that I know the textbook answers to any question you care to ask.
Trust me. I’m a genius.
