When you look back at your life and cringe at something you did, it's very often because your ego got in the way. Maybe if you'd left yourself out of it, you would have done it better.

I cringe when I remember the visit to Ireland in 1980 of Dr Karl Karstens, president of West Germany. He had been elected only a year earlier amid some controversy over his Nazi past - having joined Hitler's Brownshirt stormtroopers in the early 1930s.
