A zinger today from Howard Thurman:

“It is exceedingly difficult to keep from encouraging in oneself that which one condemns in other people.  Vices are apt to take on the halo of virtues when they are part of one’s own behavior, but seen in others they are regarded as being what in truth they are….  What I would consider a pose or pretense in my neighbor is apt to be called genuine when I do it.”

Arrghhh.  Just when I was starting to feel comfortable around mirrors!
