Ego — a strange thing

The ego is a strange thing. When it gets hurt, it gets bigger.

Whatever you do, even to diminish the ego, only nourishes the ego.

Nobody has lost and nobody has gained. Both have just been fooled.

The ego is an entity which increases, by any effort of yours. Even the effort to get rid of the ego, nourishes the ego.
