human = selfish

"We rolled up the pain, assigned it to a shelf, left it there, with a certain self-congratulatory sense of relief at our own good fortune as we looked the other way [...] and soon, we forgot we had ever felt any discomfort." (Denise Chávez, "The Last of the Menu Girls")

We are human, thus we are selfish. There is no other way.
