Oh Hugh Prather. Love some of his stuff, and can’t stand some of his stuff.
This I like…raw honesty:
“I am continually underestimating my capacity for selfishness. I like to think of myself as generous, especially toward my friends, but I’ll suddenly see new uses for some old possession I am about to give away, or in the middle of a favor–that I have offered to do– I begin resenting the time it is taking. I wish I weren’t afraid. I wish I could loosen my grip and enjoy this very simple pleasure of giving.”
