“These illustrations suggest four general maxims[…].

The first is: remember that your motives are not always as altruistic as they seem to yourself.

The second is: don’t over-estimate your own merits.

The third is: don’t expect others to take as much interest in you as you do yourself.

And the fourth is: don’t imagine that most people give enough thought to you to have any special desire to persecute you.”

― Bertrand Russell, The Conquest of Happiness

“There are more things in heaven and earth…than are dreamt of by your philosophy.”
