Quote of the Day
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.
Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.
Thomas S. Monson
Be yourself, but always your better self.
Karl G. Maeser
Being cool is being your own self, not doing something that someone else is telling you to do.
Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man's life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self.
B. R. Ambedkar
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
The greatest self is a peaceful smile, that always sees the world smiling back.
Bryant H. McGill
Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.
Inner beauty should be the most important part of improving one's self.
Loving oneself isn't hard, when you understand who and what 'yourself' is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It's so beyond all of those things and it's what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure.
There is no respect for others without humility in one's self.
Henri Frederic Amiel
Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.
Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self.
Owing to ignorance of the rope the rope appears to be a snake; owing to ignorance of the Self the transient state arises of the individualized, limited, phenomenal aspect of the Self.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.
The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one's self a fool; the truest heroism is to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom, to know when it ought to be resisted, and when it be obeyed.
If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.
Do we not realize that self respect comes with self reliance?
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Feelings aroused by the touch of someone's hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith - all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.
Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I'm on the path to being someone I'm equally terrified by and obsessed with. My true self.
All bad qualities centre round the ego. When the ego is gone, Realisation results by itself. There are neither good nor bad qualities in the Self. The Self is free from all qualities. Qualities pertain to the mind only.
Sometimes you've got to let everything go - purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything... whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.
I don't even call it violence when it's in self defense; I call it intelligence.
This above all; to thine own self be true.
If we lose love and self respect for each other, this is how we finally die.
C. S. Lewis
