Thought for the day

I remember reading something in one of the many self improvement books that I read.  It may have come from Napoleon Hill's Success Though A Positive Mental Attitude and Dale Carnegie's books.

That something is this:  not even a bad man, like Al Capone, thinks of himself as evil.  If rebuked, he may well get angry with you.

Men prefer the darkness and not the light.  This is a paraphrasing of that something from the Gospel of John.

Here is what prompted this post:

I have had some conversations recently that seem to confirm that things have gotten bad out there.

I'd rather not add to it, but who knows when one does something evil?  For you may not be thinking of it as evil.
