    If self-love is indulged without subordination to the supreme will of God, if the simple desire of happiness controls us without subjection to the higher purpose of glorifying God, then it degenerates into selfishness.

    The selfish man is always miserable. To make happiness our chief aim is infallibly to miss it.
