The blemishes of being selfish

Imam Ali (peace be upon him):

Do not be obstinate, for such a person will perish

لا تَسْتَبِدَّ بِرَأْيِكَ فَمَنِ اسْتَبَدَّ بِرَأْيِهِ هَلَكَ.

Ghororalhekam, page 443.

Imam Hadi (as) says:

الْعُجْبُ صَارِفٌ عَنْ طَلَبِ الْعِلْمِ، دَاعٍ إلیَ الْغَمْطِ وَ الْجَهْلِ.

Arrogance is an obstacle of obtaining knowledge and diverts man towards ignorance and humiliation.

Bahar al-Anwar, vol. 69, p. 199
