How to use self-seeking in a sentence?

  1. Ed Asner:

    ... After I stumbled through that disaster, I figured the damage was done, so I might as well continue the performance. I do n’t lead cavalry charges down Pennsylvania Avenue, but I ’ll make comments. And with the president we’ve got now, how can you not comment on this evil ? It’s an unbelievable aberration. And it’s not because of him, it’s what he represents that enormous core of self-seeking, discriminating, angry, racist people in the United States.

  2. John Jay Chapman:

    Is there something in trade that desiccates and flattens out, that turns men into dried leaves at the age of forty? Certainly there is. It is not due to trade but to intensity of self-seeking, combined with narrowness of occupation. Business has destroyed the very knowledge in us of all other natural forces except business.

  3. Pope Francis:

    Roman Catholic Church is Roman Catholic Church, playbook page 82. Roman Catholic Church is what they do -- they hide, they are deceitful in what they do. Roman Catholic Church is self-seeking, and they're going to spin every story.

  4. Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7:

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
