Gluttony not in the sense of eating too much, but instead, of sampling a taste of everything the world has to offer (breadth) and not taking the time for richer experience (depth).

Gluttony. It's what I've got to watch for. You know why? Because when I start to like something, really like it, when I start to go beneath the very top of the surface and it starts feeling... comfortable... Then I stop. I feel like it's not mine. I feel unclean and unworthy... No, not that. I feel like an outsider. Like it's not mine to touch, not deeply. I'm afraid I won't pass, so I don't move past scanning. So I just taste it. Keep things light. And move on.
