Quote of the Day

It must be made clear that the importance of identifying and understanding severe degrees of pathological narcissism is not just for the improved quality of our personal lives.  Our very survival as a society and species is most likely dependent on our recognition of unhealthy narcissism and our ability to confront these issues in others and ourselves.  We must come to terms with the fact that the human psyche is complicated, and we are obligated to develop psychological understanding beyond simplistic notions of right and wrong or good and evil.

-- Eleanor D. Payson, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, p. 153-154
