A Defective Ear.  "We still belong to the mob so long as we always shift the blame on to others; we are on the track of wisdom when we always make ourselves alone responsible; but the wise man finds no one to blame, neither himself nor others”.  Who said that?  Epictetus, eighteen hundred years ago.  The world has heard but forgotten the saying.  No, the world has not heard and not forgotten it: everything is not forgotten.  But we had not the necessary ear, the ear of Epictetus.  So he whispered it into his own ear?  — Even so: wisdom is the whispering of the sage to himself in the crowded market-place.
