The story goes that, before or after he died, he found himself before God and he said: "I, who have been so many men in vain, want to be one man: myself." The voice of God replied from a whirlwind: "Neither am I one self; I dreamed the world as you dreamed your work, my Shakespeare, and among the shapes of my dream are you, who, like me, are many persons�and none."
That is from Jorge Luis Borges's Essay on Shakespeare. (Link via middlestage). It is a great article, especially for some one who wants to write. Thanks, Chandrahas Choudhury.
