delusions

We are satisfied with our decent little life.
We are pleased with our good habits; we take them for virtues.
We are pleased with our little efforts; we take them for progress.
We are proud of our activities; they make us think we are giving ourselves.
We are impressed by our influence; we imagine that it will transform lives.
We are proud of what we give, though it hides what we withhold.
We maybe even be mistaking a set of coinciding egoisms for real friendships.
