"If Gold Rusts, What Shall Iron Do?"
People are born with the insatiable desire to find somebody perfect. We spend our whole lives ransacking the world for the immaculate human being who deserves our boundless reverence and whom we should emulate. We are on an unceasing quest to find our own paragon of virtue. But what a treacherous thing it is to believe that a person is more than just a person! (John Green)
The inherent thing in people is that we are fallible creatures. We have unfounded high self-esteem. We are so intransigent and implacable that we often subliminally become supercilious and put our nearest and dearest off. Our burning ambition - the struggle to live up to our own expectations, achieve our goals and realize our dreams has its toll on us. We become high-achievers in pursuit of success and mercantile satisfaction.
