Hmmmmm....
Steinbeck addresses a question that has been on my mind. Is it possible to let your beneficence blind you to certain realities?

I think your father has in him, magnified, the things his wife lacks. I think in him kindness and conscience are so large that they are almost faults. They trip him up and hinder him.

-- Steinbeck, East of Eden
