“This is personal”
“I could say the same thing.”
“In 1988, two psychologists published an article arguing that positive self-deception is a normal and advantageous part of most people’s life. It turns out people lie to themselves about three things: they view themselves in implausibly positive ways, they think they have far more control over their life’s than they actually do and they believe the future will be better than the evidence of the present can possibly justify. But we’re way beyond that now; we’re on the other side of that particular mirror.”
Everyone’s got that one thing, don’t they? Some weakness that could lead you to betray every principle you ever had?
as if men had a monopoly on murder.
