Famous quotes containing the word selfish:

    Every experiment, by multitudes or by individuals, that has a sensual and selfish aim, will fail.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If you will think about what you ought to do for other people, your character will take care of itself. Character is a by-product, and any man who devotes himself to its cultivation in his own case will become a selfish prig.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes. It may even lie on the surface; but we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions—especially selfish ones.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)
