Selfishness Quotes

1. To love at all is to be vulnerable.

Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken.

If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal.

Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements.

Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.


To love is to be vulnerable.

- C.S. Lewis

2. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not selfish, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

3. Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians.

Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck.

Well, where do people think these politicians come from?
They don't fall out of the sky.
They don't pass through a membrane from another reality.

They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens.

This is the best we can do folks.
This is what we have to offer.
It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out.

If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders.
Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans.

So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it's not the politicians who suck.
Maybe something else sucks around here... like, the public.
Yeah, the public sucks.
There's a nice campaign slogan for somebody:

'The Public Sucks. F*ck Hope.

- George Carlin

But some people act like a blessing in disguise.
