“The Cocktail Party” by T.S. Eliot

This excerpt from T.S. Eliot’s 1949 play “The Cocktail Party” encapsulates the narcissist experience.

“Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm; but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.”
