“We are self-centred human beings. Our activities are centred in ourselves, and we act from there. This self-centred activity is a process of isolation, each person seeking their fulfilment, ambition, pleasure and importance.”
Public Talk 6 in Madras (Chennai), 6 January 1980
It’s a harsh, cruel world for most of us, but many of us can afford to reside in a bubble of confidence, if not contentment. In this bubble, we can aspire to living without this bubble, seeing as how this bubble is what enables us to behave so badly and create a world so awful that we have to inhabit a bubble of babble to bear this untenable condition.
