We pledge ourselves to liberate all our people from the continuing bondage of poverty, deprivation, suffering, gender and other discrimination.
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But, it's usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.
We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.
We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
We can each define ambition and progress for ourselves. The goal is to work toward a world where expectations are not set by the stereotypes that hold us back, but by our personal passion, talents and interests.
The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.
At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.
Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.
Barbara de Angelis
I think we all have blocks between us and the best version of ourselves, whether it's shyness, insecurity, anxiety, whether it's a physical block, and the story of a person overcoming that block to their best self. It's truly inspiring because I think all of us are engaged in that every day.
Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us.
What we wish, we readily believe, and what we ourselves think, we imagine others think also.
An effort made for the happiness of others lifts above ourselves.
Lydia M. Child
Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
e. e. cummings
Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly.
Amos Bronson Alcott
Intelligent, successful, attractive people can be intimidating. They force us to hold a mirror to ourselves; we can be disappointed, jealous or inspired toward personal growth.
Ian K. Smith
If we accept being talked to any kind of a way, then we are telling ourselves we are not quite worth the best. And if we have the effrontery to talk to anybody with less than courtesy, we tell ourselves and the world we are not very intelligent.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
