How to use self-seeking in a sentence?

  1. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Genuine love loves all and sundry without conditions, it loves without expectations and it loves without complaints. In other words, genuine love is ever patient and tireless (it bears or tolerates all flaws, mistakes, short-comings, weaknesses, insults or disappointments) come what may. That is to say, true love is complaisant in nature (it is willing to please others). I mean, it is not self-seeking (it has the best interest of others at heart). Moreover, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances. Besides, it endures all (everything and everyone) without weakening. Also, true love does no wrong to anyone (it never hurts anybody). Conclusively, genuine love lasts perpetually and never for a short while. Oh! yes, that is just the qualities of true love. So, permit me to tell you this, whoever that lacks the above qualities is not a genuine love at all. Anyway, do quote me right or rather you can say I said so. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Anuj Somany:

    The universal fact is that the campaign initiated by a self-seeking person does not make any righteous effect or the right impact on the mindset of the wrongful people to change or correct them from within in fact.

  4. Mahabharata:

    Entangled in a hundred worldly snares, Self-seeking men, by ignorance deluded, Strive by unrighteous means to pile up riches. Then, in their self-complacency, they say, ?This acquisition I have made to-day, That will I gain to-morrow, so much pelf Is hoarded up already, so much more Remains that I have yet to treasure up. This enemy I have destroyed, him also, And others in their turn, I will despatch. I am a lord; I will enjoy myself; I?m wealthy, noble, strong, successful, happy; I?m absolutely perfect; no one else In all the world can be compared to me. Now will I offer up a sacrifice, Give gifts with lavish hand, and be triumphant.? Such men, befooled by endless vain conceits, Caught in the meshes of the world?s illusion, Immersed in sensuality, descend Down to the foulest hell of unclean spirits.*

  5. 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.
