Quote of the Day

In the end, the constant pursuit of maintaining a presentation that is "larger than life," whether it is talent, beauty, achievement, or some other quality, leaves us empty, unfulfilled, and yearning for something more.  Like the Wizard in his castle, the narcissist eventually becomes a prisoner of his own defenses, disconnected and alone.

-- Eleanor D. Payson, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, p. 166
