                                       Thursday 1

                     I said I would be glad to die young, so that people might
               think that I had a tranquil conscience. When it was remarked
               that I had got up a bit late from bed this morning, I tried to find
               a  reason  to  justify  it.  I  imagined  that  certain  persons  had  a
               favourable opinion of me.


                                      Wednesday 2

                     I  said  various  words  in  praise  of  myself.  I  was  also
               gratified    to  hear  that  a  certain  person  had  a  favourable

               opinion of me. I considered myself more gentle-and-kind than
               another person.


                                       Thursday 3

                     I  considered  myself  as  clever  as  another  person.  I
               repeated a thing that was said to me that put me in a bright
               light. I also said some other words in praise of myself. I wished
               my Confessor would come to know of a pious practice that I
               do.
