Flattery

"The ego is a leaky balloon, forever requiring helium of external love to remain inflated, and ever vulnerable to the small pin pricks of neglect."
~ Gurcharan Das, The Difficulty of Being Good

We all claim to be sane. Not engrossed in ourselves. Not influenced by flattery.
But we all are. 
I think most of us realize once the other person is overdoing it.. but till then, it's all music to our ears...
