Sociopath quotes -- blindspots

In most cases, people, even the most vicious, are much more naive and simple-minded than we assume them to be. And this is true of ourselves too.

- Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

  1. Very, very true. Perception can often be nearly *everything*. Both perception of what is without and perception of what is within.

  3. Franklin, I had a therapist once put me in his chair so I could see perspective from a different angle. It was good but melancholy.

    I don't WANT to see all angles. I know them! They spoil my fun and I have to stop doing things that make me feel good in the moment. I like my self-imposed blinders because I can put them up and take them down to stay a kid. I don't want to grow up. You therapists always want me to grow the fuck up, don't know how to get me to have cake and eat it? What the fuck are you good for lol?

    1. Naivety - often mistaken for honor, courage, and heart - is, and always will be, a weakness

      "It wasn't the wine that killed Robert, nor the boar. The wine slowed him down and the boar ripped him open, but it was your NAIVETY that killed the king."

      In this case, and in most others, mercy and naivety are interchangeable terms used to described the same fallacious reasoning.
