    Maybe being the center of the universe isn't so bad. If, that is, we can see it for it is, see our hard-wired tendencies, and see the opportunities to move away from them.

Maybe doing so is the best thing we can do for our own selves, then the line between doing for others, and doing for self actually blurs.
