I have been a selfish being all my life, in practice, though not in principle.  As a child, I was taught what was right, but I was not taught to correct my temper.  I was given good principles, but left to follow them in pride and conceit.  Unfortunately, an only son (for many years an only child), I was spoilt by my parents, who, though good themselves (my father, particularly, all that was benevolent and amiable), allowed, encouraged, almost taught me to be selfish and overbearing; to care for none beyond my own family circle; to think meanly of all the rest of the world; to wish at least to think meanly of their sense and worth compared with my own.  Such I was, from eight to eight and twenty; and such I might still have been but for you, dearest, loveliest Elizabeth!  What do I not owe you!  You taught me a lesson, heard indeed at first, but most advantageous.  By you, I was properly humbled.  I came to you without a doubt of my reception.  You showed me how insufficient were all my pretensions to please a woman worthy of being pleased.

Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice (1813)

I heard a bird sing in the dark of December.  A magical thing.  And sweet to remember.  We are nearer to spring than we were in September.  I heard a bird sing in the dark of December.

(Bailando, bailando, bailando, bailando)
Tu cuerpo y mío llenando el vacío
Subiendo y bajando (subiendo y bajando)
(Bailando, bailando, bailando, bailando)
Ese fuedo por dentro me esta enloqueciendo
Me va saturando

English Translation:
(Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing)
Your body and mine filling the void
Moving up and down (up and down)
(Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing)
That fire inside me is driving me crazy
It’s filling me up

Enrique Iglesias, ft. Descember Bueno, Gente de Zona, Bailando (2014)

Charlie: I just realized I’m not pissed off anymore.  My father cut me out of his will.  You probably knew he tried to contact me over the years.  I never called him back.  I was a prick.  If he was my son and didn’t return my calls, I’d have written him out.  but it’s not about the money anymore.  You know, I just don’t understand.  Why didn’t he tell me I had a brother?  Why didn’t anyone ever tell me that I had a brother?  Because it’d have been nice to know him for more than just the past six days.

Charles “Charlie” Babbitt, portrayed by Tom Cruise, Rain Man (1988)
