"The strife of the world in all
its forms, whether it be war, social or political quarrelling, sectarian
hatred, private disputes or commercial competition, has its origin in
one common cause, namely, individual selfishness. And I employ this
term selfishness in a far-reaching sense; in it I include all forms
of self-love and egotism- I mean by it the desire to pander to, and
preserve at all costs, the personality."
