...We rarely confide in those who are better than we. Rather, we are more inclined to flee their society. Most often on the other hand, we confess to those who are like us and share the weekess. Hence we do not want to improve ourselves or be bettered for we first have to be judged in default. We merely wish to be pitied and encouraged in the course we have chosen. In short, we should like, at the same time, to cease being guilty and yet not make the effort of cleansing ourselves.
