Famous quotes containing the word selfish:

    The selfish spirit of commerce, which knows no country, and feels no passion or principle but that of gain.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Single mothers have as much to teach their children as married mothers and as much love to share—maybe more. Yet their motives are often labeled selfish and single-minded—never mind all the babies brought into the world to snag husbands, “save” faltering marriages or produce heirs.
    —Anne Cassidy. “Every Child Should Have a Father But....,” McCall’s (March 1985)
