Have you ever experienced a truely 'Unselfish Act'?
I have heard many times that there is no such thing as an unselfish act.
Not to say that someones actions aren't well intentioned, just saying there is always a pay off for the person commiting a good deed. Therefore, it can't be considered completely unselfish. What do you think?
Many times. I have written about it here in my hubs. Do you know the angels is one of the greatest examples.
Actually, I have witnessed unselfish acts every day of my life, and I have been living for nearly seven decades.
As an example, way back when my late mother was was raising and caring for my sister and me, she carried out unselfish acts throughout each day.
Yes, I find myself doing things that are not selfish quite often. I suppose on some level you could say that no act is completely selfless, as even the feeling of knowing you helped someone is self gratifying.
a few times. i've had people give me food when i was a kid hitch hiking because they could tell i needed it. no one else new they gave it to me and they asked for nothing in return.
Yes I think there are acts of kindness that fall into that category. A few years back, I was living in a shelter in Florida with my family. Near the local soup kitchen, there was a van giving away pizzas to the homeless people that slept in the park. We were terribly hungry. When we got to the front of the line, there were no more. As I was leaving, a ragged man stopped me and gave us his pizza. I started to cry and begged him to join us. I knew that that was going to be his only meal of the day. And he gave it up so my kids could have a warm lunch. Examples like this are everywhere.
In response I'll just cite one of my favorite quotes: "A mother is a person who, when seeing there are only four pieces of pie left for five people, says she never really cared for pie."
