The illness of Self-Delusion


"Among these human illnesses, there is one disease which is so common that I think that no one can escape it, except a rare individual... This disease can be of greater or lesser (severity), like other physical and spiritual illnesses. The illness to which I refer consists of the fact that every individual person considers himself more perfect than he really is, and desires and lusts that all that enters his mind should possess perfection, without effort and fatigue."

(Maimonides, Medical Aphorisms 25:59)

Have a great day,
