1. "Nu exista decât o singura regula de care trebuie sa ?ii seama: sa râzi de toate ?i sa nu-?i pese de nimeni! Pare egoist, dar, în realitate, asta e singurul remediu pentru cei care-?i plâng singuri de mila."

2. "The unhappy are egoistic, spiteful, unjust, cruel, and less capable of understanding each other than fools. Unhappiness does not bring people together but draws them apart, and even where one would fancy people should be united by the similarity of their sorrow, far more injustice and cruelty is generated than in comparatively placid surroundings."
Author: Anton Chekhov
3. "E' una di quelle notti in cui sei a bordo da cinque giorni egoisti che sembrano venti e tutto ciò che riguarda la terra sembra così lontano che non te ne frega un cazzo; e ti rendi conto che da un secolo non ascolti chiacchiere radiofoniche, non leggi un giornale, non guardi la tele, non ti parlano di politica nè di corruzione, non ti dicono sa com'è, e la vita continua il suo corso e non succede assolutamente nulla e ti domandi cosa si può fare, dove diavolo ha sbagliato l'Umanità."
Author: Arturo Pérez Reverte
4. "Finché l'umanità continuerà a brancolare nella sua nebbia millenaria di superstizioni e di venerande sentenze, finché sarà troppo ignorante per sviluppare le sue proprie energie, non sarà nemmeno capace di sviluppare le energie della natura che le vengono svelate. Che scopo si prefigge il vostro lavoro? Io credo che la scienza possa proporsi altro scopo che quello di alleviare la fatica dell'esistenza umana. Se gli uomini di scienza non reagiscono all'intimidazione dei potenti egoisti e si limitano ad accumulare sapere per sapere, la scienza può rimanere fiaccata per sempre, ed ogni nuova macchina non sarà fonte che di nuovi triboli per l'uomo. E quando, coll'andar del tempo, avrete scoperto tutto lo scopribile, il vostro progresso non sarà che un progressivo allontanamento dall'umanità. Tra voi e l'umanità può scavarsi un abisso così grande, che ad ogni vostro eureka rischierebbe di rispondere un grido di dolore universale…"
Author: Bertolt Brecht

11. "But the great artists like Michelangelo and Blake and Tolstoi--like Christ whom Blake called an artist because he had one of the most creative imaginations that ever was on earth--do not want security, egoistic or materialistic. Why, it never occurs to them. "Be not anxious for the morrow," and "which of you being anxious can add one cubit to his stature?"So they dare to be idle, i.e. not to be pressed and duty-driven all the time. They dare to love people even when they are very bad, and they dare not to try and dominate others to show them what they must do for their own good."
Author: Brenda Ueland
12. "The solitary and thoughtful stroller finds a singular intoxication in this universal communion. The man who loves to lose himself in a crowd enjoys feverish delights that the egoist locked up in himself as in a box, and the slothful man like a mollusk in his shell, will be eternally deprived of. He adopts as his own all the occupations, all the joys and all the sorrows that chance offers."
Author: Charles Baudelaire

14. "Non faccio parte di quegli esaltati che sognano la realtà invece di vederla o che l'agghindano come un'amante lontana e appena intravista: la rivestono di mille qualità, mille parole non pronunciate, mille intenzioni inconfessate che concorrono alla loro felicità, mille silenzi che avranno una loro favorevole spiegazione. No, io non sono uno di questi amanti immaginari, fabbricatori di bellezza, artigiani di bontà, doratori dell'ideale, demiurghi della felicità. La realtà, io la conosco; peggio ancora, la sospetto. Mi attendo sempre che sia peggiore di quanto sembri, più violenta, più sinuosa, più torturata, ambigua, capziosa, vendicativa, interessata, egoista, tirchia, aggressiva, ingiusta, versatile, indifferente, vana; in una parola: più deludente. Di conseguenza io non abbandono la realtà, io la bracco, le resto attaccato al culo, faccio la posta a ogni sua debolezza e cattivo odore, la spremo sino a farne sprizzare il suo succo immondo. (da Il Vangelo secondo Pilato, pag. 101)"
Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt

17. "I want peace; yes, I'd sell the whole world for a farthing, straight off, so long as I was left in peace. Is the world to go to pot, or am I to go without my tea? I say that the world may go to pot for me so long as I always get my tea. Did you know that, or not? Well, anyway, I know that I am a blackguard, a scoundrel, an egoist, a sluggard."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
18. "Dragostea abstracta pentru umanitate ascunde aproape întotdeauna o iubire egoista fata de tine însuti."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
19. "Some gentlemen have made an amazing figure in literature by general discontent with the universe as a trap of dulness into which their great souls have fallen by mistake; but the sense of a stupendous self and an insignificant world may have its consolations. Lydgate's discontent was much harder to bear; it was the sense that there was a grand existence in thought and effective action lying around him, while his self was being narrowed into the miserable isolation of egoistic fears, and vulgar anxieties for events that might allay such fears."
Author: George Eliot
20. "His soul was sensitive without being enthusiastic: it was too languid to thrill out of self-consciousness into passionate delight; it went on fluttering in the swampy ground where it was hatched, thinking of its wings and never flying. His experience was of that pitiable kind which shrinks from pity, and fears most of all that is should be known: it was that proud narrow sensitiveness which has not mass enough to spare for transformation into sympathy, and quivers threadlike in small currents of self-preoccupation or at best of an egoistic scrupulosity."
Author: George Eliot
21. "Non si tratta diincrementare la popolazione, ma di trasmettere chi siamo e cosa abbiamo imparato, così che le cose vadano avanti. Così da non limitarci a morire. Lo so che per certi versi è egoista, ma quale altro senso avrebbero le nostre vite?"

Author: John Buchanan Robinson

Author: Marilyn Monroe
27. "Mi intencion de hacerte reir es totalmente egoista , solo hago para ver tu sonrisa"
Author: Matias Silva
28. "You call me the unhuman," it might say to him, "and so I really am—for you; but I am so only because you bring me into opposition to the human, and I could despise myself only so long as I let myself be hypnotized into this opposition. I was contemptible because I sought my 'better self' outside me; I was the unhuman because I dreamed of the 'human'; I resembled the pious who hunger for their 'true self' and always remain 'poor sinners'; I thought of myself only in comparison to another; enough, I was not all in all, was not—unique.[102] But now I cease to appear to myself as the unhuman, cease to measure myself and let myself be measured by man, cease to recognize anything above me: consequently—adieu, humane critic! I only have been the unhuman, am it now no longer, but am the unique, yes, to your loathing, the egoistic; yet not the egoistic as it lets itself be measured by the human, humane, and unselfish, but the egoistic as the—unique."
Author: Max Stirner

30. "In crime the egoist has hitherto asserted himself and mocked at the sacred; the break with the sacred, or rather of the sacred, may become general. A revolution never returns, but an immense, reckless, shameless, conscienceless, proud—crime, doesn't it rumble in the distant thunder, and don't you see how the sky grows ominously silent and gloomy?"
Author: Max Stirner
31. "You see, loneliness is the price we have to pay for being born in this modern age, so full of freedom, independence, and our own egoistical selves."

33. "Such excessive preoccupation with his faults is not a truly spiritual activity but, on the contrary, a highly egoistic one.The recognition of his own faults should make a man humbler, when it is beneficial, not prouder, which the thought that he ought to have been above these faults makes him."
Author: Paul Brunton
34. "No society has succeeded in abolishing the distinction between ruler and ruled... to be a ruler gives one special status and, usually, special privileges. During the Communist era, important officials in the Soviet Union had access to special shops selling delicacies unavailable to ordinary citizens; before China allowed capitalist enterprises in its economy, travelling by car was a luxury limited to tourists and those high in the party hierarchy Throughout the 'communist' nations, the abolition of the old ruling class was followed by the rise of a new class of party bosses and well-placed bureaucrats, whose behaviour and life-style came more and more to resemble that of their much-denounced predecessors. In the end, nobody believed in the system any more. That, couple with its inability to match the productivity of the less bureaucratically controlled, more egoistically driven capitalist economies, led to its downfall."
Author: Peter Singer
35. "NBA is not exactly the friendliest environment for teaching selflessness. Even though the game itself is a five-person sport, the culture surrounding it celebrates egoistic behavior and stresses individual achievement over team bonding."

Author: Robertson Davies
39. "Erano stati vanesi ed egoisti, persino Cam. Ma ora tutto ciò non aveva più importanza perché non era rimasto niente, tranne loro, tranne gli Dèi Bianchi che avanzavano sullaterra in cerca di qualcosa che non esisteva più."

Author: Sulejman Bugari
44. "What is needed now is for leaders to become more open, more flexible, less egoistic and less hypocritical. We must loosen our death grip on whatever we believe to be the truth simply because it is how we want the truth to look. We must be honest with ourselves and invite honesty from others."
Author: Susan Scott
45. "I had made the fatal mistake of believing in his touch, as if the intelligence of his hands, our orgasms, the way he penetrated me, had affected him as much as it had affected me. Perhaps this is the catch cry of the egoist: I love, therefore I must be loved. Perhaps it is the Achilles' heel of my gender."
Author: Tobsha Learner
46. "Greks, kuru es senak aukleju samudžinatas sirds stigas, mon grand peche radieux, ir saplacis lidz savai butibai: lidz neaugligam un egoistiskam netikumam; un tieši to es svitroju lauka un noladu. Jus varat zoboties par mani un piedraudet atbrivot tiesas zali, bet, kamer man mute neiebazis sprudu un nenoslapes mani, es kliegtin kliegšu par savu nabaga taisnibu. Briesmigi velos, lai visa pasaule uzzinatu, cik loti es milu savu Lolitu, šo Lolitu, balu un aptraipitu, ar svešu bernu zem sirds, bet vel arvien pelekam acim, arvien krasotam skropstam, arvien vel gaišmatainu un salkani smaidošu, arvien vel Karmensitu, arvien vel manu, manu… Changeons de vie, ma Carmen, allons vivre quelque part ou nous ne serons jamais separes."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
