David Foster Wallace

Am I a good person? Deep down, do I even really want to be a good person, or do I only want to seem like a good person so that people (including myself) will approve of me? Is there a difference? How do I ever actually know whether I’m bullshitting myself, morally speaking? —  David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster and Other Essays. (Little, Brown and Company; First Edition edition December 13, 2005)
