The Wanderer was walking with two of his friends through the streets of New York.
Suddenly, in the midst of a casual conversation, the other two began to argue, almost attacking each other.
Later -when things had calmed down -they were sitting in a bar. One of them apologized to the other. “I've noticed that it's very easy to be hurtful to those you know,” he said. “If you were a stranger, I would have controlled myself much more. But because we are friends -and you know me better than anyone does -I wound up being much more aggressive. That's human nature.”
Maybe it is human nature. But we should fight against it.
