“I believe there exist in society both good selfishness and bad selfishness. Good selfishness is where I benefit, but you actually benefit more. Raising children well, or running an ethical charitable organization are but two examples of what I call good selfishness.

Bad selfishness is where I benefit, but literally everyone else pays a price for it. Drug dealing, financial fraud, and heads of state defrauding the government they were entrusted to run, are all examples of bad selfishness.”

John Hope Bryant from his bestseller Love leadership.
