"Mentalistic theories of ethical self-management appeal to entities which seem to be particularly accessible to introspection. The inner forces which are said to take place of environmental variables are feelings. Men do brave things because they feel courageous or help someone because they feel compassionate.

Psychiatrist: Good morning, Charles. You're looking splendid.
Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus: I feel splendid.
Psychiatrist: Every day, and in every way, you're feeling..
Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus: Better and better.[…] Now, now, Doctor. Some people would consider your methods most unorthodox.
Psychiatrist: I was just making sure that you're not a better liar than I am a psychiatrist."
