Selfish

Thomas à Kempis

Love is swift, sincere, pious, pleasant, gentle, strong, patient, faithful, prudent, long suffering, manly and never seeking his own, for wheresoever a man seeketh his own, he falleth from love.

John Chrysostom

Humility leaves us free to obey happily.  So long as we yield humbly to another we overcome ourselves in our hearts, we overcome our own selfishness and break its enslaving bonds.

Iris Murdoch

Happiness is a matter of one’s most ordinary and everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self.

Helen Keller

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

Brian Tracy

Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, “What’s in it for me?”

Booker T. Washington

In my contact with people I find that, as a rule, it is only the little, narrow people who live for themselves, who never read good books, who do not travel, who never open up their souls in a way to permit them to come into contact with other souls — with the great outside world.

Booker T. Washington

In meeting men, in many places, I have found that the happiest people are those who do the most for others; the most miserable are those who do the least.
