One of the great illusions of life is that I will give myself credit for being better than I am merely because I internally approve of good deeds, ideas or I “like” Facebook pages that are about good causes thinking “I’m in favor of that.”
I rate myself as above-average on compassion and justice purely because of passive internal emotional responses.

Better to take one step–even if it’s small.
