Let no one endeavor to cover up his own sins by revealing the mistakes of someone else. God has not given us this work to do.—Manuscript 56, 1904, 3. (“Take Heed to Thyself,” Talk, May 23, 1904.) 6MR 220.1

Selfish interest must ever be made subordinate; for if given room to act, it becomes a controlling power which contracts the intellect, hardens the heart, and weakens the moral power. Then disappointment comes. The man has divorced himself from God and sold himself to unworthy pursuits. He cannot be happy, for he cannot respect himself. He has lowered himself in his own estimation. He is an intellectual failure.—Manuscript 21, 1899, 1. (“Give Unto the Lord the Glory Due Unto His Name,” typed March 8, 1899.) 6MR 220.2
