Well, if you’re a true saint, if you’re Mahatma Ghandi or Mother Theresa, you don’t have to broadcast it. Part of being a saint is you don’t have an ego. You don’t feel the need to go on social media and proclaim to the world, “Look at all the great things I’m doing.”
The best forms of charity, of altruism, is when the other person doesn’t even know you’re doing it. You’re hiding yourself, so they don’t feel beholden to you. You’re not lording over them your act of charity.
So a true saint doesn’t need to promote him or herself, and the fact that you have to promote this is a sign of something a little bit dubious.Robert Greene
