Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.
—1 Corinthians 10:24 (NIV)
There is an idea abroad among moral people that they should make their neighbors good. One person I have to make good: myself. But my duty to my neighbor is much more nearly expressed by saying that I have to make him happy—if I may.
... Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), The Works of Robert Louis Stevenson, v. XII, New York: C. Scribner's Sons, 1922, p. 396 (see the book)
