Text:
It is also again strange how each person thinks mainly of himself even in matters where everyone should subordinate to the whole. This shows that in order to get beyond oneself, one needs a certain reflection of a pronounced self-education. A big monumental task in which several people are engaged can be compared to the theater. Not everyone is equally suitable. If one does not know this exactly from the beginning, then everyone must first be tested. And then you soon see that it is just like on the stage. Envy, resentment, mutual accusations, slander, prima donna pain. And even more so when it is a matter of winning money.
