I liked the Mother Teresa quote. she seemed to understand that we are both rational and irrational. The rational part of her brain is exploiting the irrational part of her brain. She understands that if she looks at the masses she'll be overwhelmed and won't do anything, so she chooses to look at the individual, so that she will do something and do the most good. We need to recognize that we are both rational, and irrational, and work with that. We are human beings, for better and for worse.
