The feeling of being harried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is, on the contrary, born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else – we are the busiest people in the world.
~~ Eric Hoffer
Hoffer wrote about the relationship with self-esteem and the impact of trying to live a full life in absence of it. He observed societal change and authored several books including, “Reflections On the Human Condition” and “The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements“.
