comment what is the difference in the usage of [成]{な}るべく and できるだけ?
@Tsuyoshi San, you are right. I didn't think of that. An explanation I found explains it thusly: なるべく implies frequency or rate, as well as "as ~ as possible" [できるだけ[小さく切った]]紙片を貼り付けてください。 [なるべく[小さく切った]]紙片を貼り付けてください。 [なるべく[小さく切った紙片を貼り付けて]]ください。 So in example one and two the meaning is "the smallest scraps" with なるべく modifying 紙片, なるべく can also imply "please affix as many small scraps." どう思いますか。 Is that better?

comment What are some sentences that exhibit わがまま
Well, わがまま isn't exactly "selfish;" to me it is more of a self-centered, stubborn person, so maybe I wasn't being broad enough. Another example of this phrase I googled was Andou Miki the skater:「もうわがままを言わない。大人になろうと決めたんです」. "I won't speak egotistically. I've decided I have to grow up." Does that make more sense?
