Selflessness Quotes

Kahil Gibran had rightly said, “Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” Selflessness is one virtue that absolves man of selfishness, conquers pride and guards one against meanness and jealousy. A selfless person is someone who volunteers his service without any selfish motive or without being expected to be served in return. Read these famous selflessness quotations and sayings and experience the real joy of being selfless.

Dalai Lama

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Dalai Lama

If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.

Charles Kingsley

It is only the great hearted who can be true friends. The mean and cowardly, Can never know what true friendship means.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The body has to be utilized for service to others. More bliss can be got from serving others than from merely serving oneself.

Thomas Merton

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

Thomas Merton

Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.

There is pleasure when a sore is scratched, But to be without sores is more pleasurable still. Just so, there are pleasures in worldly desires, But to be without desires is more pleasurable still.
