A Quote by Marilyn vos Savant on behavior, competition, garden, individuality, life, people, and survival

Loving behavior contributes to the group at the expense of the individual. Competition contributes to the survival of the individual at the expense of the group. In the garden of life, some people are more like flowers, and other people are more like weeds.
