"I am that I am" in General Book Discussions Posted November 2, 2011 · Report reply Claudia, can I ask why you're asking this sort of question.. is it a general query, or some sort of homework help? No, Michelle...sometimes sentences just pop up in my mind, but I cannot remember the origin... For instance, in this case I was listening the song "I am what I am" and I remember that I knew also the other sentence. So, I thought I might have read it in some books. Thus, I asked the help of the forum. Is it a problem?
