Selfishness – Quotes to Inspire Writers


It does not matter if you think well or poorly about yourself – because you are still only
thinking about yourself.

Katherine doesn’t know where this came from and when I googled it all that came up was this site with her comment.

Do you know who said this or something close? Let us know.

And share your favorite quote in comments and it will probably show up some Saturday.

  • An Episcopal minister in Ohio–Reverend Baker once said to me, “In my opinion, selfishness is the highest sin; because it spauns other sins such as covetness, adultry, jealousy, envy and so on…”

    Thought that was a neat insight on human nature and so true..

      Excellent… some of my Buddhist friends call that self-cherishing.

    I like the quote Katherine NC presented. It is so thought provoking and true.
    “That which does not kill you makes you stronger,” and “God will not give you more than you can handle.” Two of my all time favorite quotes … quotes that I live by.

  • I enjoy your weekend quotes, Anne. It gives me inspiration and something to think about as I go about my day.

      It’s interesting how the Saturday quote post has shifted. For a long time I just dug around until I found a quote I liked. Then it dawned on me my writers probably had quotes they liked so I asked… now I normally just have to format the quote and link to their website… and I’m learning all sorts of new quotes I wouldn’t have found on my own.
