Narcissism Defined

Some friends play at friendship but a true friend sticks closer than one's nearest kin.
(Promises Of Joy, Proverbs 18:24 (NRSV), p. 197)

Too many people learn to function in their dysfunction. ... You can never change what you tolerate.
(Joel Osteen, Become A Better You, p. 43-4)

... narcissism, the habit of focusing attention on oneself rather than the world of objects and of others, is considered a disorder.
(Thomas Moore, Care Of The Soul, p. 55)

How deep are your thoughts?
