Is it true that we do things mostly for our benefits?

I have stumbled across someone saying that "As human beings, everything we do is because of our own benefits. Even when we choose to help someone, we do it because the kind act brings us happiness."

To some extent it is true. What do you think about this point of view?

  • Jul 30 2013: Yes it is true , but the difference is, some look for there benefits were other also benefits. Others only look for there benefit even at the loss or total loss to others. These kind of people's benefits are very short lived & One keeps on closing one door after another on himself . The one who cares for others keeps on opening new doors for himself time & every time.
