I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than on the opinions of others.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
C. S. Lewis
Being noticed can be a burden. Jesus got himself crucified because he got himself noticed. So I disappear a lot.

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.
A man's natural rights are his own, against the whole world; and any infringement of them is equally a crime, whether committed by one man, or by millions; whether committed by one man, calling himself a robber, (or by any other name indicating his true character,) or by millions, calling themselves a government.
