The desire to feel important

"Half of the harm that is done is this world is due to people who want to feel important . . . . They do not mean to do harm . . . . They are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves." - T.S. Eliot
"Lack of something to feel important about is almost the greatest tragedy a man may have." - Arther E. Morgan
