AA Thought for the Day
September 7, 2017
This odd trait of mind and emotion, this perverse wish to hide a bad motive underneath a good one,
permeates human affairs from top to bottom. This subtle and elusive kind of self-righteousness can
underlie the smallest act or thought. Learning daily to spot, admit, and correct these flaws is
the essence of character-building and good living.

Thought to Ponder
Self-righteousness is a loud din raised to drown the voice of guilt within us.
L O V E = Leave Out Violent Emotion.
