Be My Valentine?
“Love, we are repeatedly taught, consists of self 
-sacrifice. Love based on self-interest, we areadmonished, is cheap and sordid. True love, weare told, is altruistic. But is it?
“Genuine love is the exact opposite. It is the most
selfish experience possible, in the true sense ofthe term: it benefits your life in a way thatinvolves no sacrifice of others to yourself nor of
yourself to others.”
