    But I have not said that it is also very difficult, I think maybe it is the most difficult thing in the world to listen to yourself when you are telling yourself unhappy truths. When you are both truth-teller and reluctant truth-listener. I think we make terrible truth-listeners to our truth-teller selves, I think that is where we fail most spectacularly and on a scale so grand it makes us sort of giants of failure, titans of unrealized potential, colossi of mediocrity. It is a failure so regrettable and disappointing, even the mean gods weep for us.
