"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." T.S. Eliot
This quote is used in an article just released on LeadershipJournal.net entitled, "Pastoral Narcissism: The Shadow Side of Ambition" by JR Kerr. So true and convicting... for some of us.
