On Selfishness

Every time you get more than you give, you reduce the amount of wealth available for others. Every time you work, you reduce the amount of jobs available for others. Every time you seek safe shelter, you reduce the amount of safe shelter available for others. Every time you eat, you reduce the amount of food available for others. Every time you drink, you reduce the amount of clean water available for others. Every time you breathe, you reduce the amount of oxygen in the air for others. Every time you exist, you reduce the amount of space available for others. You must be a selfish asshole. And that’s today’s two cents.
