"I fall in love with myself, and I want someone to share it with me. And I want someone to share me, with me" - Eartha Kitt
This is our inner discourse. We have to be two [...] the living one and the dying one.
“Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one’s self esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all.”
— Thomas Szasz
