    I suspect they don’t *mean* to.
    Most of the people who don’t feel claustrophobic in their own skin, but do put time into things larger than themselves, don’t insist that anyone else needs to do the same.

  2. i believe that oneself is the biggest cause. it’s the best thing we have to offer.

    Many people don’t seem to have much skin of their own. Rather like a piece of jagged marble just waiting to be shaped by a Raphael.
