Himself Quotations

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. - Leo Tolstoy
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
Leo Tolstoy

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
William Shakespeare

To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favor of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior Himself.
James E. Faust

If one has the answers to all the questions - that is the proof that God is not with him. It means that he is a false prophet using religion for himself. The great leaders of the people of God, like Moses, have always left room for doubt. You must leave room for the Lord, not for our certainties; we must be humble.
Pope Francis

Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.
Douglas MacArthur
