Word

Jesus' life didn't go well. He didn't reach his earning potential. He didn't have the respect of his colleagues. His friends weren't loyal. His life wasn't long. He didn't meet his soul mate. And he wasn't understood by his mother. Yet I think I deserve all those things because I'm so spiritual. -- Hugh Prather, "Spiritual Notes to Myself"

What an egotistical, obnoxious quote.

I think it's quite humble, actually. He's recognizing his own arrogance and saying "Who the hell do I think I am?"
