Famous quotes containing the word selfish:

    A spirit of innovation is generally the result of a selfish temper and confined views. People will not look forward to posterity, who never look backward to their ancestors.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)

    The ability to secure an independent livelihood and honorable employ suited to her education and capacities is the only true foundation of the social elevation of woman, even in the very highest classes of society. While she continues to be educated only to be somebody’s wife, and is left without any aim in life till that somebody either in love, or in pity, or in selfish regard at last grants her the opportunity, she can never be truly independent.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)

    The selfish man suffers more from his selfishness than he from whom that selfishness withholds some important benefit.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
