Quote of the Day
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.
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.
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
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.
There is no respect for others without humility in one's self.
Henri Frederic Amiel
I don't even call it violence when it's in self defense; I call it intelligence.
The greatest self is a peaceful smile, that always sees the world smiling back.
Bryant H. McGill
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.
Sometimes I wish that I could go into a time machine right now and just look at my self and say, 'Calm down. Things are gonna be fine. Things are gonna be all great. Just relax.'
This above all; to thine own self be true.
Be yourself, but always your better self.
Karl G. Maeser
If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.
Singing is my passion, my first love and the secret of my energy. Music to me is like finding my inner self, my soul. It gives me a great joy to see audiences enjoying with me. I have given my heart to singing. When I sing, I can feel romance in everything around me.
Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.
A. C. Benson
Inner beauty should be the most important part of improving one's self.
There can be no failure to a man who has not lost his courage, his character, his self respect, or his self-confidence. He is still a King.
Orison Swett Marden
I love my husband very much. I knew it was real true love because I felt like I could be myself around that person. Your true, true innermost authentic self, the stuff you don't let anyone else see, if you can be that way with that person, I think that that's real love.
Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self.
Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.
The real power of the Buddha was that he had so much love. He saw people trapped in their notions of small separate self, feeling guilty or proud of that self, and he offered revolutionary teachings that resounded like a lion's roar, like a great rising tide, helping people to wake up and break free from the prison of ignorance.
True happiness arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one's self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions.
The 'self-image' is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior.
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.
We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
