Sincerity is overrated

“Sincerity is a much overrated virtue.  We are all capable of persuading ourselves that what is good for us is good for the country [or our family, our spouse, our company, etc.]”  Despite our sincerity, it may in fact not be good for the country, or our family, our spouse, our company, etc.
