Self-pity

Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the non-pharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality.

John W. Gardner (1912-2002) American educator, and social activist.

Of all the infirmities we have, the most savage is to despise our being.

Montaigne (1533-1592) French philosopher and essayist.
