The easiest person to deceive is one's self.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
The world runs on individuals pursuing their self interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn't construct his theory under order from a, from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn't revolutionize the automobile industry that way.
So then, the relationship of self to other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined as other than yourself.
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
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
Comparison is an act of violence against the self.
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.
The authentic self is the soul made visible.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
To be one's self, and unafraid whether right or wrong, is more admirable than the easy cowardice of surrender to conformity.
He who attends to his greater self becomes a great man, and he who attends to his smaller self becomes a small man.
I have moments where I miss my old self. But I think anyone can get caught up in what we used to have. But at the same time, we can choose to focus on the beauty of now.
Be that self which one truly is.
The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one's self. And the arbitrariness of the constraint serves only to obtain precision of execution.
Bondage is the life of personality, and for bondage the personal self will fight with tireless resourcefulness and the most stubborn cunning.
The torment of precautions often exceeds the dangers to be avoided. It is sometimes better to abandon one's self to destiny.
Lovers may be - and indeed generally are - enemies, but they never can be friends, because there must always be a spice of jealousy and a something of Self in all their speculations.
Love is when each person is more concerned for the other than for one's self.
Who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image, but thee who destroys a good book, kills reason its self.
Art attracts us only by what it reveals of our most secret self.
All relationships change the brain - but most important are the intimate bonds that foster or fail us, altering the delicate circuits that shape memories, emotions and that ultimate souvenir, the self.
True self is non-self, the awareness that the self is made only of non-self elements. There's no separation between self and other, and everything is interconnected. Once you are aware of that you are no longer caught in the idea that you are a separate entity.
Thich Nhat Hanh
If I could give my teenaged self any advice, it would be 'Calm down!'
Love is union with somebody, or something, outside oneself, under the condition of retaining the separateness and integrity of one's own self.
Then I realized that secrecy is actually to the detriment of my own peace of mind and self, and that I could still sustain my belief in privacy and be authentic and transparent at the same time. It was a pretty revelatory moment, and there's been a liberating force that's come from it.
If there is anything besides the Self there is reason to fear? Who sees the second? First, the ego arises and sees objects as external. If the ego does not rise, the Self alone exists and there is no second.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
