"[T]he logical fallacy in the notion that love for others and love for oneself are mutually exclusive should be stressed. If it is a virtue to love my neighbor as a human being, it much be a virtue--and not a vice--to love myself, since I am a human being too. There is no concept of man in which I myself am not included."
