Literary Lines: September 10

“One of the few things about which I feel I’ve gained any wisdom as I’ve grown older is the insight that nearly everybody believes himself to be a good person.  We all feel as though we’re doing our best.  When others find us obnoxious or insolent or cruel, it is only, we think, because we were misunderstood or because they deserved it, or because they are the bad people.  Not us.  Nobody thinks of himself as a villain.  Not even villains.”

–from location 2281 of Michael Ian Black’s Navel Gazing
