Of Being Flawed and Ridiculous

The corruption of the good by the belief in their own infallible goodness is the most bloody dangerous pitfall in the human spectrum. Once you have conquered all your sins, pride is the one which will conquer you. A man starts off deciding he is a good man because he makes good decisions. Next thing, he’s convinced that whatever decision he makes must be good because he’s a good man…Always stick with people who know they are flawed and ridiculous. – Helen Fielding, author of the Bridget Jones series.

P.S. I’ve been writing Bridget Jones fan fiction. If interested, click here to check out latest post:

    1. Hi, sorry for being late in replying. I was ill for quite a while. I didn’t get to watch BJB for that reason, though it’s nice to read a positive review! I would have watched it regardless of reviews, because I love the character so much. Some of the things you mentioned from the movie does sound interesting!

      I write Bridget Jones fan fiction following events from the third book, i.e. Mad About The Boy. Here’s a link if you’re interested:
