Wow, came across this in a friend's e-mail signature line today. I've felt the same way lately

"All this is flashy rhetoric about loving you.
I never had a selfless thought since I was born.
I am mecenary and self-seeking through and through;
I want God, you, all friends, merely to serve my turn.

Peace, reassurance, pleasure, are the goals I seek,
I cannot crawl one inch outside my proper skin;
I talk of love--a scholar's parrot may talk Greek--
But, self-imprisoned, always end where I begin."

C.S. Lewis
