    They are as inherent to all humanity as benevolence and altruism is.

    I know quite a few people who think of other peopel and other peoples interest.

    I know someone who thinks almost exclusively in the terms of other peoples interests (which seems to lead towards a very screwed up existance for them ironically).

    One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people.
