On Good, Evil & Ourselves

“We are ready to appropriate to ourselves the merits of which we have been only the agents, while we hasten to project upon Things, Destiny or Others an evil whose roots are really in ourselves.”

~ Denis De Rougemont, The Devil’s Share (New York, NY: Meridian Books, 1956), 44-45.
