Love is the doorway through which the human soul passes from selfishness to service.
Need drives men to envy as fullness drives them to selfishness.
Selfishness is not living your life as you wish to live it. Selfishness is wanting others to live their lives as you wish them to.
Less, less of self each day, And more, my God, of Thee!
This idea of selfishness as a virtue, as opposed to generosity: That, to me, is unnatural.
