Hello here is the definition of excuse: "A reason or explanation put forward to defend or justify a fault or offense."
For comparison, here is the definition of an explanation: "A reason or justification given for an action or belief."
The two are not necessarily opposites though. An excuse is an explanation, but an explanation is not necessarily an excuse.

I think we know which gives a clearer definition regarding selfish behavior, though.



Also, I'm going to be honest here and admit that I didn't read a word beyond what was quoted.
