The thing I find really scary about ghosts and demons is that you don't really know what they are or where they are. They're not very well understood. You don't know what they want from you. So it's the kind of thing you don't even know how to defend yourself against. Anything that's unknown and mysterious is very scary.
You have to be in love with yourself before anyone else can fall in love with you; to be happy with yourself.
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.
Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.
If your man is a sports enthusiast, you may have to resign yourself to his spouting off in a monotone on a prize fight, football game or pennant race.
A rapper is about being completely true to yourself. Being an actor is about changing who you are.
The purpose of morality is to teach you, not to suffer and die, but to enjoy yourself and live.
Remember that no relationship is a total waste of time. You can always learn something about yourself.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Imagine for yourself a character, a model personality, whose example you determine to follow, in private as well as in public.
Don't kid yourself that you're going to live again after you're dead; you're not. Make the most of the one life you've got. Live it to the full.
Do not speak of your happiness to one less fortunate than yourself.
The fearful unbelief is unbelief in yourself.
I think it is a sin to look at another person as inferior to yourself because of race or because of ethnic background, and I think the greatest thing to do is to pray that God will give you love for them, and I do.
You should breathe deeply and chant, 'Money will easily and effortlessly flow into my life' as often as you can every day. Things will start to change after a month. If you believe you will be financially secure, then you are opening yourself up to change.
Louise L. Hay
By imposing too great a responsibility, or rather, all responsibility, on yourself, you crush yourself.
Ultimately spiritual awareness unfolds when you're flexible, when you're spontaneous, when you're detached, when you're easy on yourself and easy on others.
God expects but one thing of you, and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made and let God be God in you.
If you don't love yourself, you can't love anybody else. And I think as women we really forget that.
When you're in the position I'm in, you have two options: you can either shut yourself off from everybody, from the world, and not live a full life. Or you welcome everybody into your life and occasionally somebody will try to take advantage.
Take stock of your thoughts and behavior. Each night ask yourself, when were you negative when you could have been positive? When did you withhold love when you might have given it? When did you play a neurotic game instead of behaving in a powerful way? Use this process to self-correct.
Chaos is rejecting all you have learned, chaos is being yourself.
Emile M. Cioran
I think they all went too far. Their jeans got too low, their tops got too see-through. Personally, I think that sexy is keeping yourself mysterious. I'm really an old-fashioned girl, and I think I'm totally sexy.
The act of writing is a way of tricking yourself into revealing something that you would never consciously put into the world. Sometimes I'm shocked by the deeply personal things I've put into books without realizing it.
Men are destroyed for being rebellious, and women destroy themselves by failing to be rebellious. Unless you can make that next jump to either getting along with people or resisting people, you are ultimately destroying yourself.
My characters tend to be more dynamic because they're reaching that point in their lives where their old way of being is breaking down. They're conflicted by the idea that they don't know what's next. You could call it Kierkegaard's leap of faith, when you get tired of sort of reinventing yourself on a very superficial level.
John F. Kennedy
