Half the harm that is done in this world
Is due to people who want to feel important.
They don’t mean to do harm — but the harm does not interest them.
Or they do not see it, or they justify it
Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle
To think well of themselves.
— from 'The Cocktail Party' by T.S. Eliot …and here ends tonight’s T.S. Eliot extravaganza as it is past one a.m. and as ever, I am busy tomorrow. But “absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves” quite sums up the nauseating way I’ve spent most of these past twenty years (or at least a good ten of them). Edit: yes there was a typo — should be world not word.
