His pride," said Miss Lucas, "does not offend me so much as pride often does, because 
there is an excuse for it. One cannot wonder that so very fine a young man, with family, 
fortune, everything in his favour, should think highly of himself. If I may so express it, he 
has a right to be proud." 

"That is very true," replied Elizabeth, "and I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not 
mortified mine." 

"Pride," observed Mary, who piqued herself upon the solidity of her reflections,"is a very common failing, I believe. By all that I have ever read, I am convinced that it is very common indeed; that human nature is particularly prone to it, and that there are very few of us who do not cherish a feeling of self-complacency on the score of some quality or other, real or imaginary. Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us."

It seems that there is a very specific area in the brain which could be called poetic memory and which records what has charmed us, what has moved us, what gives our life its beauty.

Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity... It is, in short, the subject of the history of the Grail. Only a predestined being has the ability to ask another: what is your torment? And he doesn't have it when he enters life. He has to go through years of dark night.

Almost everyone in the world is self-absorbed within themselves. They regard themselves as the most important beings. People rarely speak bad about themselves. They are the heroes in their own story no matter how much entanglement of lies and bullshit is needed to achieve a gratifying and satisfying version of the tale.

By observing their actions, you could trace back their thought pattern, intentions, interest, and vision. Stop for a moment and analyze the action. Stop caring about what they say, what they think about how the world should be, how everyone can execute their best, or why the world is so messed up. They speak whatever hell it takes to sound amazing. Listen to their actions. Listen only and only to their actions.

Every night, we get lost in the meanders of our psyche Every night, we get lost in the meanders of our psyche
Evgeniy Evchenko via Artstation

We all have forests on our minds. Forests unexplored, unending. Each one of us gets lost in the forest, every night, alone.
