Security For Happiness

You shall not, for the sake of one individual, change the meaning of principle and integrity, nor endeavour to persuade yourself or me, that selfishness is prudence, and insensibility of danger security for happiness.

-- Jane Austen (1775 - 1817), English novelist who recorded the domestic manners of the landed gentry, Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 24
