Man is a selfish animal

Most of the men will certainly not like this idea, but some would even happily admit that the proverb goes perfect, some would rather ask "...And Woman??" Well gentlemen and ladies out there, I want to make my point clear that this wisely thought of mine is a general saying in which the word 'man' refers to a common noun and not the category 'men' just as in "It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles ~Niccolo Machiavelli" OR more simple one like "A man is known by the company he keeps (though it applies on a woman too)", but when men (alone) get the credit of every thing which occurs in collaboration of them and women, then why not the title of this saying go to a man just! :)
So as I introduced the topic by admitting that we are selfish (animals), I want to bring towards readers that every relationship in this world exists out of some necessity. You help someone, you'll expect him/her to help you in future in some way or other. You even tell the God to help you and only then you would offer Him something if things go as you asked for.. You love people in order to get love in return (though in this case the converse does generally not hold), You hate and get hatred back.. That's how this world of Give and Take is operating. We cannot get rid of it.. but at least we can try to give positive things to this world, so that a positive cycle of give and take continues, and we can get positive in return from the other end..

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.


  1. Well,the post is really nice!!!
    Man is selfish, but so are animals and so is GOD..
    Well,what makes one man stand out of others is the level of sacrifice he is willing to accompany his selfishness..
    And it is gud to be socially selfish than to be individually selfish...

  2. Swati,
    As i am a man, i should not agree in this point, by the way the logic you want to clear through this topic is good.
