The conflict of operating as a selfless vs. selfish person. Strength vs. nurture.
Gail Boenning

I can’t read it. it’s locked for me. well, selflessness is an illusion. all of us are selfish and should be.

The point is, ladies and gentlemen, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms: greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind.
~ Gordon Gekko, Wall Street

in my philosophy, we can cast away the illusion of selflessness and thus, you won’t have to live with contradiction.

I do not see in religion the mystery of the incarnation so much as the mystery of the social order. It introduces into the thought of heaven an idea of equalization, which saves the rich from being massacred by the poor.
~ Napoleon I of France

Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.
~ Man in Black, The Princess Bride

so is the guy who tells you we can be selfless.
