From a Book: Self-Worship Is Everywhere

“You are a liar and a coward and a thief. You think you have no master, and so you are lawless in your self-worship.”

Eli flushed. “I have no love for myself.”

“Self-loathing and self-worship can easily be the same thing. You hate the small sack of fluids and resentments that you are, and you would go to any length, and betray anything and anyone, to preserve it.”

-from Dandelion Fire (Book 2 of the 100 Cupboards Series) by N. D. Wilson, Loc 1941
