Ego quotes by Suzy Kassem
#1. The human ego is the ugliest part of man. We lift up men who only show us darkness, and put down those brave enough to show us the light. Likewise, people engage in darkness when it is light outside, and acknowledge the light only when it is dark. We abandon those fighting for us to cheer behind those fighting against us. And, we only remember good people and God when it is convenient for us, and take them for granted because their doors are always open - only to chase after closed doors and personalities void of substance and truth. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Ego quotes by Rumi
#2. Kill the cow of your ego as quickly as you can, so that your inner spirit can come to life and attain true awareness. #Quote by Rumi
Ego quotes by Roger Ailes
#3. When a guy has his ego hurt, he's liable to jump into a fight he doesn't need to have. #Quote by Roger Ailes
Ego quotes by Frank Gehry
#4. You see a lot of so-called architecture that part of the ego trip overpowers the functionality and the budget and all that stuff. #Quote by Frank Gehry
Ego quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#5. It's tempting to tether ourselves to the familiar comfort of the way things are, but fulfillment is often discovered in the unpredictable and unknown. We can serve ourselves and our universe, best, when we can take the journey that takes us from the limited desire of our ego, to the ever-expanding love and wisdom, of our divine nature. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Ego quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#6. Who are we to think we deserve anything? What makes us so great? No one is "lucky" to have us. We are all full of it. #Quote by Donna Lynn Hope
Ego quotes by David Bowie
#7. I think much has been made of this alter ego business. I mean, I actually stopped creating characters in 1975 - for albums, anyway. #Quote by David Bowie
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#8. The second thing: nobody has ever been able to drop the ego because ego is not a reality that you can drop; anything to be dropped at least has to be real, substantial. Ego is just a notion, an idea. You cannot drop it, you can only understand it. Can you drop your shadow? You can run as fast as you want but your shadow will run at the same speed, exactly the same speed ... #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Renee Paule
#9. ... life isn't a battle between us and the rest of the world, but rather a battle to overcome ourselves - our inimitable egos ... #Quote by Renee Paule
Ego quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#10. Very unconscious people experience their own ego through its reflection in others. When you realize that what you react to in others is also in you (and sometimes only in you), you begin to become aware of your own ego. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Ego quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#11. Ego is more interested in proclaiming its existence than in basking in the limitless energy of real spirituality. I entreat you to not cheat yourself on the spiritual path. There is no one to impress, nothing to "get", nowhere to rush to, nothing to miss on. The truth is always there, plain and simple, hiding somewhere near you. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Ego quotes by Greg Saunier
#12. I feel vulnerable when my ego is threatened - if I get jealous of another band's good time slot at a big festival, if I'm about to get clobbered in a political debate, if I'm trying to impress someone I have a crush on. It's the opposite of openness, letting go, allowing deep feelings to express themselves. For me, that comes from playing music and from kissing. #Quote by Greg Saunier
Ego quotes by Josh Mecka
#13. The ego is the preprogrammed response and your awareness is at a higher level of consciousness. Awareness allows you to drive right past your ego, so you can detach from it in order, meaning it won't consume you. #Quote by Josh Mecka
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#14. 'I am' is nothing but another name for the ego. Now you will be getting into trouble. If the ego is convinced that the only way is to drop the ego, then who is going to drop whom? And how? It will be like pulling yourself up by your own shoestrings. You will look just silly. Watch each word that you use. 'I am' is nothing but the ego. #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Jacent Mary Mpalyenkana
#15. Grounding is taking a conscious effort to retract oneself from the world's distractions, and then focusing on listening to isolate the voice of God within from the voice of the ego. The voice of God within is where all the answers lie. #Quote by Jacent Mary Mpalyenkana
Ego quotes by Tennessee Williams
#16. Nobody sees anybody truly but only through the flaws of their own ego. #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Ego quotes by Human Angels
#17. Ego is based on judgment. Stop judging and you will be free from the ego: in the Oneness there is no judgment, only Unconditional Love. #Quote by Human Angels
Ego quotes by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
#18. I get that you have a huge ego and probably don't want to admit you're a disgusting, shallow bastard, but don't hide behind a doctor's note. #Quote by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Ego quotes by R.F. Kuang
#19. We don't die so much as we return to the void. We dissolve. We lose our ego. We change from being just one thing to becoming everything. Most of us, at least. #Quote by R.F. Kuang
Ego quotes by Ryan Holiday
#20. You're not as good as you think. You don't have it all figured out. Stay focused. Do better. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Ego quotes by Anupama Garg
#21. Always be attentive of your ego. #Quote by Anupama Garg
Ego quotes by Human Angels
#22. The total acceptance of ourselves in the present moment without judging things that happen, letting things happen as they happen, is the final act that frees us from the ego: this is the unconditional surrender of the ego to the Higher Self. #Quote by Human Angels
Ego quotes by Ken Goldstein
#23. Pain has an odd way of expressing itself in the acts of business. No matter how many setbacks a leader might experience, there always seems to be a new opaque watermark of endurance testing, invisibly triggered for erratic combustion in each compounding decision. Every CEO in the world knows this, yet few have the good sense to walk away from the table when their cards are hot. Why win in Act Two when a comeback in Act Three gives you a longer biography? Ego is not so much about immortality as it is about demonstrating stately resistance to nightmarish attacks in public forums. Any good smack to the head is a continuity wake up call, or at least another invitation to be interviewed by Charlie Rose. #Quote by Ken Goldstein
Ego quotes by Aleksandr Voinov
#24. ... and then showed Owen the reservation. Four people.
"But we're only two," Owen said.
"Yeah, but my ego needs more space than that. #Quote by Aleksandr Voinov
Ego quotes by Unarine Ramaru
#25. If you value your relationship or friendship, your ego won't stand in the way of a meaningful apology. #Quote by Unarine Ramaru
Ego quotes by Marcus Buckingham
#26. You have a filter, a characteristic way of responding to the world around you. We all do. Your filter tells you which stimuli to notice and which to ignore; which to love and which to hate. It creates your innate motivations - are you competitive, altruistic, or ego driven? It defines how you think - are you disciplined or laissez-faire, practical or strategic? It forges your prevailing attitudes - are you optimistic or cynical, calm or anxious, empathetic or cold? It creates in you all of your distinct patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior. In effect, your filter is the source of your talents. #Quote by Marcus Buckingham
Ego quotes by Danny Boyle
#27. The great thing with film is that it doesn't have an ego. It's just a film. Everybody that makes them has an ego, and the problem with awards and stuff like that is that it always affects the egos, and everyone gets stained by it in some way. And that can be fine and very innocent, but it can be horrible as well. #Quote by Danny Boyle
Ego quotes by Jimi Hendrix
#28. Definitely, and it's getting more spiritual. Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words ... Meaning nothing. Therefore you will have to get an earthier substance, like music or the arts. #Quote by Jimi Hendrix
Ego quotes by Paul Levy
#29. The ego isn't a bad thing. If we didn't develop a strong ego, a strong sense of self, we wouldn't be able to relate to and engage with the extremely powerful and archetypal forces (both dark and light) of the unconscious. If we don't have a strongly developed sense of self (even though it is not, ultimately speaking, the true self), we will get overwhelmed and taken over by the powers of the unconscious such that we will compulsively act them out. #Quote by Paul Levy
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#30. Your ego is just an idea implanted in your mind. It is poisonous. Your ego keeps driving you madder and madder. #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Michelle Rodriguez
#31. The egos in this industry are incredibly vulnerable and everybody's afraid to wipe out. So everybody plays it safe and everybody tells everybody else how great they are. #Quote by Michelle Rodriguez
Ego quotes by Frederick Lenz
#32. What is there when the ego is gone? Eternity, love. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Ego quotes by Philip Toshio Sudo
#33. Always thinks of the other; ego thinks only of oneself. Love is always considerate; ego is absolutely inconsiderate. Ego has only one language and that is of self. Ego always uses the other; love is ready to be used, love is ready to serve. #Quote by Philip Toshio Sudo
Ego quotes by Huston Smith
#34. Love is the movement within life that carries us, that enables us, that causes us to break out of what Alan Watts calls the "skin-encapsulated ego." Without love, we are self-centered, but love enables us to move the center of our lives outside our ego. Therefore it expands our lives and, needless to say, enriches it. Any human being would give anything to love or be loved. When it really happens, it is like heaven on earth. #Quote by Huston Smith
Ego quotes by Gina Lake
#35. [ ... ] Essence simply enjoys and commits attention and love to whatever is. In fact, committing attention to anything that is present results in enjoyment. The ego enjoys so little because it commits attention to what isn't present and to what it doesn't have, and suffers over that, instead of committing attention to whatever is. It loves its fantasies, dreams, and desires more than it loves reality. #Quote by Gina Lake
Ego quotes by Jane Austen
#36. His second ... must give him the pleasantest proof of its being a great deal better to choose than to be chosen, to excite gratitude than to feel it. #Quote by Jane Austen
Ego quotes by Jim McGrath
#37. What he lacks in intelligence he makes up for with ego. #Quote by Jim McGrath
Ego quotes by Sebastiao Salgado
#38. When I was just starting out, I met Cartier-Bresson. He wasn't young in age but, in his mind, he was the youngest person I'd ever met. He told me it was necessary to trust my instincts, be inside my work, and set aside my ego. In the end, my photography turned out very different to his, but I believe we were coming from the same place. #Quote by Sebastiao Salgado
Ego quotes by Joni Mitchell
#39. All my battles were with male egos. I'm just looking for equality, not to dominate. But I want to be able to control my vision. #Quote by Joni Mitchell
Ego quotes by Paul Cezanne
#40. All my compatriots are asses compared to me. #Quote by Paul Cezanne
Ego quotes by James Hollis
#41. The goal of individuation is wholeness, as much as we can accomplish, not the triumph of the ego. #Quote by James Hollis
Ego quotes by Traci Harding
#42. Kali comes from the Sanskrit word 'kal', meaning time. She is a Hindu goddess, who is greatly misunderstood by the Western world as being associated with sex, death and violence, but in the Hindu text she kills only demons. For humankind, she represents the death of the ego and the will to overcome the 'I am the body' idea. She reminds us that the body is only temporary, and through this realisation she provides liberation to her children. To the soul who aspires to greater spiritual endeavours, Kali is receptive, supportive and loving. It is only a person filled with ego who will perceive Kali in a fearsome form. Her black skin represents the womb of the quantum darkness, the great non-manifest from which all of creation arises and into which all of creation will eventually dissolve. #Quote by Traci Harding
Ego quotes by Masanobu Fukuoka
#43. Giving up your ego is the shortest way to unification with nature. #Quote by Masanobu Fukuoka
Ego quotes by Ivan Figueroa-Otero
#44. The Ego, The Thief that Steals Happiness from Our Hearts #Quote by Ivan Figueroa-Otero
Ego quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#45. Most importantly: Don't adjust your results to build up the ego of the chief strategist. Especially if the strategist is you. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Ego quotes by Roger Zelazny
#46. I don't know that I ever wanted greatness on its own. It seems rather like wanting to be an engineer, rather than wanting to design something - or wanting to be a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip. #Quote by Roger Zelazny
Ego quotes by Evan Esar
#47. Ego: The only thing that can keep growing without nourishment. #Quote by Evan Esar
Ego quotes by RuPaul
#48. Ego loves identity. Drag mocks identity. Ego hates drag. #Quote by RuPaul
Ego quotes by Osho
#49. In the world of matter nothing succeeds like the ego, in the world of consciousness nothing fails like the ego. #Quote by Osho
Ego quotes by Henry Adams
#50. Since [Rousseau's] time, and largely thanks to him, the Ego has steadily tended to efface itself, and, for purposes of model, to become a manikin on which the toilet of education is to be draped in order to show the fit or misfit of the clothes. The object of study is the garment, not the figure. #Quote by Henry Adams
Ego quotes by Maha Khalid
#51. There is nothing but love. There was nothing but love. Love is all it is, and nothing exists that does not exist of love. That which is real and true is love. Suffering pain and loss is not real. Reality is that which is from love and love is the essence of the divine. What is not love is not real. What is not real is a construct made up by the ego through the instrument of the mind. It is the world of illusion, the veil on our eyes of utter darkness preventing us from seeing that which is real and true, which is love #Quote by Maha Khalid
Ego quotes by Taite Adams
#52. The ego is never satisfied. So, if you're not satisfied with what you have right now, consider what is driving you. #Quote by Taite Adams
Ego quotes by Mooji
#53. I come to call you Home.
Those who resonate with my words and follow them internally, will find that place and know It's completeness, its joy and fullness.
I have come to call you away from suffering, from fear and from a life of sorrow and into your own, divine Being.
I did not come here to give you decorative stories, to excite your imagination, or sign you up for some long program but to show you how available Truth is, and to remind you that you are never separate from It.
No person on this planet is apart from the Truth in the Heart and yet the world is so vast and varied in expression.
The greatest good and greatest evil is here.
In this forest of duality and complexity you must find your way Home.
You must win your Self back. Wisdom and trust will be your compass.
Many voices came to call us but we are here today because we are freshly called by the voice of God, Love, Truth.
Do not come half way home, but fully home.
I know the voice that called you is true and Truth and that where you are being called to is also Real.
It is inside your own Heart.
It is what gives me the strength to be here.
I love to see the beings being set free from the hypnosis of conditioning; from fears, false projection and the grip of ego.
And I know that to be liberated is not difficult.
It requires only openness and the sincere desire to be free.
I don't need to hear anything about your past.

Ego quotes by Ramakrishna
#54. All troubles come to an end when the ego dies #Quote by Ramakrishna
Ego quotes by R. Carlos Nakai
#55. A birth we embark on a good journey, seeking a destination of happiness. The journeys on our life-road facilitate development of our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual states-of-being, into a way of true power and wisdom. The Heart-center power, expressed as happiness and love, will guide us upward on a path away from frustration, bitter toil and travail. These journeys are directed inward, not outwardly in material mementos of ego and possession. The lesson is relearning that which has been suppressed and forgotten, in ourselves, since our earliest childhood. #Quote by R. Carlos Nakai
Ego quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#56. Mitchell had answered that, as far as he understood them, mystical experiences were significant only to the extent that they changed a person's conception of reality, and if that changed conception led to a change in behavior and action, a loss of ego. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Ego quotes by Ken Wilber
#57. When the thunder roars, do you not hear your Self? When the lightening cracks, do you not see your Self? When clouds float quietly across the sky, is this not your very own limitless Being, waving back at you? #Quote by Ken Wilber
Ego quotes by Seth Rogen
#58. I guess it's a kind of a goal for any actor to be the lead of a movie. Not for ego reasons, but because it is creatively the biggest challenge. #Quote by Seth Rogen
Ego quotes by Craig Venter
#59. Show me a highly successful person in any field that has gotten there having a weak ego. You have to believe in yourself, and you have to believe in what you're doing. #Quote by Craig Venter
Ego quotes by Joan Jett
#60. The most important thing is being genuine, and real, and not getting caught up in the "Star-Ness" of it. You don't want to act like a star around other people. You have to watch it, and you want to stay grounded, it's very important, and that's probably what I have learned most because you definitely have opportunities to let your ego run wild and you have to keep your ego in check. #Quote by Joan Jett
Ego quotes by Thomas Sowell
#61. Ego trips by coteries of self-exalting people are treated in the media as idealism, rather than the petty tyranny it is. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Ego quotes by Dada Vaswani
#62. The Hindu marriage may be described as the union of two families. In this union, there is no room for petty ambitions and personal ego-trips. What is involved is love for the entire family that one is marrying into. #Quote by Dada Vaswani
Ego quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#63. Conflicting egos destroy many relationships. Lasting, stable marriages are a true treasure because they demand that both parties adjust to the constant cellular flux of their partner as they metaphase through changing seasons of life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Ego quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#64. That ego of yours getting in the way."
"Of what?"
"The perfect package."
He snorted. "Let me tell you, I have the perfect-"
"Don't be gross."
"You have such a dirty mind. I was going to say I'm perfect in all the ways that count. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Ego quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#65. Furthermore, any teaching that puts the spotlight of attention on the workings of the ego will necessarily provoke egoic reaction, resistance, and attack. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Ego quotes by Antonio Banderas
#66. When you go to a movie with so many stars [like The Expendables 3], you don't know what you're going to find, exactly. You don't know if it's going to be an ego trip, ego on the set, who is taking this position, where the camera is, I want to be in front of this guy - that's true ... It's worse, actually, when you have people around you that are very hungry to obtain something that they never had. Success. #Quote by Antonio Banderas
Ego quotes by Karen A. Baquiran
#67. When I thought everything was impossible to achieve, my spirit defied my thoughts and did the impossible. My ego sees limitations, but my spirit sees opportunities. #Quote by Karen A. Baquiran
Ego quotes by Aya Sabrine Soussi
#68. We all need something:
The blood needs the red
The sky needs the blue
The grass needs the green
The good need the best
The last needs the first
The bye needs the same
The air needs the light
The light needs the sun
The moon needs the stars
The night needs the awake
The you need the all But then you lose'em all
The lies need the truth
The love needs the care
The mom needs the son
The son needs the dad
The parents need the both In the end they disappear
The self needs the ego
The body needs the soul
The death needs the breath
The grave needs you there. #Quote by Aya Sabrine Soussi
Ego quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#69. As a child, a person builds up an egoic sense - the child has a name, has an "I," has a mind. But then, to awaken, a person needs to completely transcend that sense of ego. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Ego quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#70. A dictatorship of relativism is being built that recognizes nothing as definite, and which leaves as the ultimate measure only one's ego and desires ... Having a clear faith, according to the credo of the church, is often labeled as fundamentalism. Yet relativism, that is, letting oneself being carried 'here and there by any wind of doctrine,' appears as the sole attitude good enough for modern times. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Ego quotes by Eliyahu M. Goldratt
#71. The minute you supply a person with the answers, by that very action you block them, once and for all, from the opportunity of inventing those same answers for themselves. If you want to go on an ego trip, to show how smart you are, give the answers. But if what you want is action to be taken, then you must refrain from giving the answers. #Quote by Eliyahu M. Goldratt
Ego quotes by Joseph P. Kauffman
#72. Enlightenment is not about building a false sense of spirituality or blindly following religious doctrine, it is about carefully cultivating practices that relieve one of the ego and transcend the illusory perceptions of the world. #Quote by Joseph P. Kauffman
Ego quotes by Anonymous
#73. I was stubborn and refused to chase, I threw my ego away and chased; it does not matter. Some people are just not meant to be. #Quote by Anonymous
Ego quotes by Timothy Keller
#74. Pride is unstable because other people are absentmindedly or intentionally treating the proud man's ego with less reverence than he thinks it deserves. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#75. The ego is like too many dark clouds around the sun - the sun gets lost #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#76. Love starts when we push aside our ego and make room for someone else. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#77. That is again the same story played on a more subtle level. That's what the religious people have been doing down the ages - pious egoists they have been. They have made their ego even more decorated; it has taken the color of religion and holiness. Your ego is better than the ego of a saint; your ego is better, far better - because your ego is very gross, and the gross ego can be understood and dropped more easily than the subtle. The subtle ego goes on playing such games that it is very difficult. One will need absolute awareness to watch it. #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Mark X.
#78. Ah Buddha, you boastful charlatan. You may have learned nothing after 6 years of suffering, but then what of 7 years? What of 17? What might you have learned from a lifetime of pain? [ ... ] From what I can tell, the wisest man in all these scriptures was the first person Buddha ever tried to teach - an Ajivika named Upaka. Buddha bragged to him of how he achieved nirvana, to which Upaka simply replied: "That may be so," and walked away. #Quote by Mark X.
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#79. I would like you to drop the ego, to dissolve, to disappear, because only then is there fulfillment. The ego knows only emptiness; it is always unfulfilled. By the very nature, by its very intrinsic nature, it cannot attain to fulfillment. When you are not, fulfillment is. Call it God, or give it a name Patanjali would like - samadhi - the attainment of the ultimate, but it comes when you disappear. #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Alison Bechdel
#80. Your unconscious wants to express the pain you feel about your own lost innocence. But your ego wants to keep it repressed. To the compromise is anxiety. #Quote by Alison Bechdel
Ego quotes by Bryant McGill
#81. Evolve your understanding of success from the outer realm of control, materialism, and ego, to the inner realm of surrender, spirituality, and compassion. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Ego quotes by Aidan Chambers
#82. I am without any doubt whatever a NON-actor. For a start, the gushing pretension of would-be actors puts me off. Ergo ego. I watch them preening in front of the rehearsal mirrors in the drama hall. Just waiting for applause. All they want is to be liked. Plus admired, adored, idolized, flattered, etc. And they're more like groupy than glue. If they're on their own for more than five minutes they get withdrawal symptoms and go walkabout, looking for kindred lost souls to coagulate with. #Quote by Aidan Chambers
Ego quotes by Chad Coleman
#83. Andrew Lincoln has to be the nicest, ego-less lead actor that I've ever met in my life. His energy and temperament just falls over everyone. #Quote by Chad Coleman
Ego quotes by Kirsty Eagar
#84. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's the wounded male ego. It's as though Hollywood thinks I've got some choice in whether I like him or not. As if. I can't change who I am. #Quote by Kirsty Eagar
Ego quotes by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
#85. In the creative process, my ego has always been a huge tyrant ... a dictator and kind of rude and very misleading, because sometimes when I'm doing something, I say, "This is great! This is fantastic! Very genius!" And 20 minutes later, I feel like a dead jellyfish. "You are a stupid a**hole. This is a piece of sh*t. Nobody will care about it." #Quote by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Ego quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#86. Greed is the thief of the soul. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Ego quotes by Robert Kodingo
#87. We hate each other by race, color, tribe, wealth, gender etc because everyone wants to feel special and different than the other. I do not however have a solution on how people can stop having an ego that makes them specially superior than the other. #Quote by Robert Kodingo
Ego quotes by Tom Watson
#88. If you have an ego of any sort, this course [Augusta] will take it and shove it down your throat. #Quote by Tom Watson
Ego quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#89. Everyone is the most important person in the world to themselves. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Ego quotes by Nicolas Winding Refn
#90. Film works when a director and a star have a connection. You know, when there's something telekinetic between them, there's a partnership, it's like alter egos. It's like James Stewart and Alfred Hitchcock, or Fellini and Mastroianni. I'm not comparing, I'm just saying, if you can come into a relationship where the director and star have such a bond, it's so much easier to make a movie. #Quote by Nicolas Winding Refn
Ego quotes by Ram Dass
#91. I'm a Bhakti, meaning I practice devotional yoga and the heart and love, so I say to people, start with your ego and go down to your heart. #Quote by Ram Dass
Ego quotes by Jay Woodman
#92. At work, or anywhere in life, people should be a team, working for the best of all, not protecting individual egos. #Quote by Jay Woodman
Ego quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#93. High ego makes you think that you are the king of the universe while you are in fact the king of nothing! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Ego quotes by Walter M. Miller Jr.
#94. The monk's ultimate goal is direct union with the Godhead. But to aim at that goal is to miss it altogether. His task is to rid himself of ego so that consciousness, once its usual discordant mental content is dumped out of it through ritual prayer and meditation, may experience nonself as a living formlessness and emptiness into which God may come, if it please Him to come. #Quote by Walter M. Miller Jr.
Ego quotes by Nikki Haley
#95. I think it's very important to get ego out of the room. I think it's important to realize it takes two hands to clap - stop the pointing, stop the blame game. I think we've seen enough of that, I think the country is tired of it. I think they want to see Washington function, they want to see action. #Quote by Nikki Haley
Ego quotes by Joan Konner
#96. Love is transcending the ego to connect with another, #Quote by Joan Konner
Ego quotes by Daniel James Brown
#97. Somewhere among them - those green and untested boys - lay much of the stock from which he would have to select a crew capable of going all the way. The trick would be to find which few of them had the potential for raw power, the nearly superhuman stamina, the indomitable willpower, and the intellectual capacity necessary to master the details of technique. And which of them, coupled improbably with all those other qualities, had the most important one: the ability to disregard his own ambitions, to throw his ego over the gunwales, to leave it swirling in the wake of his shell, and to pull, not just for himself, not just for glory, but for the other boys in the boat. #Quote by Daniel James Brown
Ego quotes by Maurice Sendak
#98. Art has always been my salvation. And my gods are Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson, Mozart. I believe in them with all my heart. And when Mozart is playing in my room, I am in conjunction with something I can't explain - I don't need to. I know that if there's a purpose for life, it was for me to hear Mozart. Or if I walk in the woods and I see an animal, the purpose of my life was to see that animal. I can recollect it, I can notice it. I'm here to take note of. And that is beyond my ego, beyond anything that belongs to me, an observer, an observer. #Quote by Maurice Sendak
Ego quotes by Lisa Bedrick
#99. Some people only go to church for the social life. They like having all the friends in church or getting the praises of men by doing certain things, but they don't go there to actually worship God. They go there so others can worship THEM instead. #Quote by Lisa Bedrick
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#100. Doing brings ego. Ego is the shadow of action. And there is only one thing that is not doing and that is awareness, watchfulness. The only thing that is not part of the world of action is pure awareness. No shadow is created by pure awareness. It is so pure that light can pass through it - it is transparent and no shadow is created. #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Denise Duhamel
#101. I just didn't get it -
even with the teacher holding an orange (the earth) in one hand
and a lemon (the moon) in the other,
her favorite student (the sun) standing behind her with a flashlight.
I just couldn't grasp it -
this whole citrus universe, these bumpy planets revolving so slowly
no one could even see themselves moving.
I used to think if I could only concentrate hard enough
I could be the one person to feel what no one else could,
sense a small tug from the ground, a sky shift, the earth changing gears.
Even though I was only one mini-speck on a speck,
even though I was merely a pinprick in one goosebump on the orange,
I was sure then I was the most specially perceptive, perceptively sensitive.
I was sure then my mother was the only mother to snap,
"The world doesn't revolve around you!"
The earth was fragile and mostly water,
just the way the orange was mostly water if you peeled it,
just the way I was mostly water if you peeled me.
Looking back on that third grade science demonstration,
I can understand why some people gave up on fame or religion or cures -
especially people who have an understanding
of the excruciating crawl of the world,
who have a well-developed sense of spatial reasoning
and the tininess that it is to be one of us.
But not me - even now I wouldn't mind being god, the force
who spins the planets the way I spin a globe, #Quote by Denise Duhamel
Ego quotes by Anthony Trollope
#102. Colonial governors at their seats of government, and Ministers Plenipotentiary in their ambassadorial residences are very great persons indeed; and when met in society at home, with the stars and ribbons which are common among them now, they are less, indeed, but still something. But at the Colonial and Foreign Offices in London, among the assistant secretaries and clerks, they are hardly more than common men. All the gingerbread is gone there. His Excellency is no more than Jones, and the Representative or Alter Ego of Royalty mildly asks little favours of the junior clerks. #Quote by Anthony Trollope

#103. Whoever ego motivates becomes an idol worshipper #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Ego quotes by Debbie Ford
#104. To get past your ego and its defenses you need to get quiet, be brave, and listen to your inner voices ... When you embrace the messages of each aspect of your shadow, you begin to take back the power you've given to others and form a bond of trust with your authentic self. The voices of your unembraced qualities, when allowed into your consciousness, will bring you back into balance and harmony with your natural rhythms. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Ego quotes by Joseph Priestley
#105. To me there is in happiness an element of self-forgetfulness. You lose yourself in something outside yourself when you are happy; just as when you are desperately miserable you are intensely conscious of yourself, are a solid little lump of ego weighing a ton. #Quote by Joseph Priestley
Ego quotes by Arthur Helps
#106. Selfishness, when it is punished by the world, is mostly punished because it is connected with egotism. #Quote by Arthur Helps
Ego quotes by Belsebuub
#107. Pleasure brings pain, but inner silence brings nothing negative; it is in itself of great value and is a far better way to be than to be in ego states. #Quote by Belsebuub
Ego quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#108. Cosmologists have plenty of ego. How could you not when your job is to deduce what brought the universe into existence? #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Ego quotes by Jessica Clare
#109. When in doubt, flatter the ego. #Quote by Jessica Clare
Ego quotes by Deepak Chopra
#110. If you approach a difficult problem without struggle, your ego will at first try to take charge from years of habit. Do the minimum and stand back. Solutions incubate at a deep level, not at the speed demanded by your mind. Take a break and come back the next day. Allow the answers to arise from your center, even if it takes a while. However much you have to retrain yourself in this practice of Least Effort, the ability to come from your center is worth the highest price anyone could pay. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Ego quotes by Vishal Chipkar
#111. Our planet for Superhumans.

Let us change the name of our planet as Divine Home,
Let us compel the higher consciousness to descend upon our divine home, Let us change the United Nations to United Humans. When the self ignorance, ego and immaturity is removed from mankind, politics and religion will no more exist,
When politics is removed, borders won't be required, When the religion is removed, hatred, misbelief and mass ignorance will not exist, god as dual wont exist.
Let us live on the 29% earth as one Home, the divine home.
Welcome Superhumans". #Quote by Vishal Chipkar
Ego quotes by Marilyn Nelson
#112. How sweet it is to let God purge our souls of ego and bitterness, and to have a little taste of heaven here on earth. #Quote by Marilyn Nelson
Ego quotes by Alan W. Hirshfeld
#113. If there was one overriding element to Faraday's character, it was humility. His 'conviction of deficiency,' as he called it, stemmed in part from his deep religiosity and affected practically every facet of his life. Thus Faraday approached both his science and his everyday conduct unhampered by ego, envy, or negative emotion. In his work, he assumed the inevitability of error and failure; whenever possible, he harnessed these as guides toward further investigation. Faraday adhered to no particular school of scientific thought. Nor did he flinch when a favored hypothesis fell to the rigors of experiment. #Quote by Alan W. Hirshfeld
Ego quotes by Mike Madrid
#114. The real source of her villainy came from those qualities that supposedly make men great leaders- a thirst for power, relentless drive paired with massive ego, and a total lack of emotions. #Quote by Mike Madrid
Ego quotes by Carl Jung
#115. The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends. #Quote by Carl Jung
Ego quotes by Jen Groover
#116. Seeking what you get from others fuels the ego& depletes the soul.
Seeking what you can give others is where purpose& fulfillment begins. #Quote by Jen Groover
Ego quotes by Matthew Kelly
#117. The challenge life presents to each of us is to become truly ourselves
not the self we have imagined or fantasized about, not the self that our friends want us to be, not the self our ego would have us be, but the self God has ordained us to be from before we were in our mother's womb. #Quote by Matthew Kelly
Ego quotes by Wayne Dyer
#118. Ego is simply an idea of who you are that you carry around with you. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Ego quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#119. Every human being is indeed unhappy as long as he is not free from kashays. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Ego quotes by Claire Danes
#120. When somebody's ego is in service of really brilliant, innovative work, it's hard to, cause I'm such an asshole, it's hard to criticize their failures as a human sometimes. #Quote by Claire Danes
Ego quotes by Cindy Gerard
#121. Jesus, would you look at him. Hair too long and too blond. Eyes too sexy and too blue. Body too buff, ego in danger of liftoff. Standing there in his tight fitted jeans, painted-on T-shirt, and snakeskin boots, he looked like God's guilty gift. Trouble was, he knew it. #Quote by Cindy Gerard
Ego quotes by Paul Tudor Jones
#122. Don't be a hero. Don't have an ego. #Quote by Paul Tudor Jones
Ego quotes by Marianne Williamson
#123. The ego seeks intimacy through control and guilt. The Holy Spirit seeks intimacy through acceptance and release. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Ego quotes by Tom Robbins
#124. Meditation ... dissolves the mind. It erases itself. Throws the ego out on its big brittle ass. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Ego quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#125. Man only remains hypnotised with the false idea of an ego. When this ghost is off from us, all dreams vanish, and then it is found that the one Self only exists from the highest Being to a blade of grass. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Ego quotes by Allen Iverson
#126. We got to stop people. We go ahead and we score 100 points every night, but we give up more. Our whole thing was, we know we can score, and we have to start having some kind of fun on the defensive end. Everybody want to play offense. Not too many people want to play defense. Defense is ego, pride, and that's the way we've been coming out, just taking the challenge. Man-on-man first, and having each other's back when a guy gets beat. #Quote by Allen Iverson
Ego quotes by Riley Redgate
#127. Sometimes you go a long time having fooled yourself into thinking that you're as grown-up as you'll ever be, or that you're more mature than the rest of the world thinks you are, and you live in this state of constant self-assurance, and for a while nothing can upset you from this pedestal you've built for yourself, because you imagine yourself to be so capable. And then somebody does something that takes a golf club to your ego, and suddenly you're nine years old again, pieced together from humiliation and gawky youthfulness and childlike ideas like, Somebody please tell me what to do, nobody taught me how to handle this, God, just look at all the things I still don't understand, and you can't muster up the presence of mind to do anything but stand there, stare, silent, sorry. #Quote by Riley Redgate
Ego quotes by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
#128. A man of wisdom always looks at every problem from the other's point of view also. You cannot be wise if you have only one point of view. Sometimes try to stand in others' shoes and just look from there. #Quote by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#129. Helping, fixing, and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. when you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul. #Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen

Ego quotes by Jonathan Ames
#132. One last thing on objectives - I like to make things, create things, so that's probably been the primary objective all along, even before the ego objective - to make. To record. But why record ... [that] gets back to the ego, a little. Oh, well. Making is good. I like to make things. #Quote by Jonathan Ames
Ego quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#133. I try to find myself in things but never quite make it and end up losing myself in them. That is the fate of the ego. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#134. You cannot drop the ego. Once you start trying to drop the ego you will get in a very deep mess; you will become more and more worried and puzzled. And this is not the way to get rid of the ego. The only way to get rid of the ego is to look at it. #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Rajneesh
#135. The ego and the personality have to be dropped, then you will find individuality arising ... a feeling of uniqueness. Yes, you are unique. Everybody else is also unique. In this world only unique people exist, so comparison is just stupid, because you alone are like yourself. There is nobody like you, so how to compare? #Quote by Rajneesh
Ego quotes by Truman Capote
#136. I was jut vamping for time to make a few self-improvements: I knew damn well I'd never be a movie star, it's too hard; and if you're intelligent, it's too embarrassing. My complexes aren't inferior enough: being a movie star and having a big fat ego are supposed to go hand-in-hand; actually, it's essential not to have any ego at all. #Quote by Truman Capote
Ego quotes by Traci LaRussa
#137. If there is anything I have learned, it is this - we must seek truth and goodness and stop stroking the ego of a crowd. In the words of C.S. Lewis, "Courage, dear heart. #Quote by Traci LaRussa

Ego quotes by Toba Beta
#140. Smartass Disciple: Master, I'm going to change the whole world.
Master of Stupidity: It changes within you. It changes without you. #Quote by Toba Beta
Ego quotes by Jean Klein
#141. Liberation does not concern the person, for liberation is freedom from the person. Basically the disciple and teacher are identical. Both are the timeless axis of all action and preception. The only difference is that one 'knows' himself for what he is while the other does not. The idea of being a person, an ego, is nothing other than an image held together by memory. #Quote by Jean Klein
Ego quotes by Vandana Shiva
#142. My mother was a tremendous woman. I was just cleaning up old trunks and I found a book with her notes written during the war years, in the 1940s. She was studying in Lahore, which became Pakistan. She was writing about how women alone could bring peace to the world, that the men with all their greed and egos were creating all these tensions and violence. I always knew she was a feminist, ahead of her time. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Ego quotes by Jason Kirkey
#143. There is a saying that 'the psychotic drowns in the waters that the mystic swims in.' The health and structural integrity of the ego means the difference between spiritual emergence, the unfolding of a transpersonal identity; and a spiritual emergency a crisis brought on by the same unfolding, during which the foundations of sanity can be shaken. #Quote by Jason Kirkey
Ego quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#144. There have been many people for whom limitations, failure, loss, or pain in whatever form turned out to be their greatest teacher. It taught them to let go of false self-images and superficial ego-dictated goals and desires. It gave them depth, humility and compassion. It made them more real. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Ego quotes by Noha Alaa El-Din
#145. What do you want to hear? I am sure you want to hear some praises, the one who does mischievous deeds loves to get praised by the most unpleasant negative comments to nourish one's ego. #Quote by Noha Alaa El-Din
Ego quotes by Aurora Rose Reynolds
#146. No man wants to give a woman the power to crush his ego, and baby, I hate to tell you this, because I like that you don't realize how beautiful you are, but you are the kind of woman that could make a man feel like he has it all or make him feel like he has absolutely nothing. #Quote by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Ego quotes by Jacque Fresco
#147. Architects are mostly self-centered and their buildings express their ego. [They are] not social buildings to make it more comfortable for people - to make life better for people. The cities have to be designed so people can get together and talk with one another. #Quote by Jacque Fresco
Ego quotes by C. G. Jung
#148. and doctrinairism are the disease of our time; they pretend to have all the answers."44 Where primitives identify themselves with the world itself, moderns identify themselves with the part of them that controls the world: the ego. #Quote by C. G. Jung

#149. The instant you take the lead in the tug-of-war with your ego, enlightenment becomes your state of being. #Quote by Pooja Ruprell
Ego quotes by Pat Conroy
#150. The Bear had once confided to me that Durrell's ego could fit snugly in the basilica of St. Peter's in Rome but in very few other public places. This runaway megalomania marked him as a blood member of the fraternity of generals. If looks alone could make generals, Durrell would have been a cinch. He was built lean and slim and dark, like a Doberman. A man of breeding and refrigerated intelligence, he ordered his life like a table of logarithms. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Ego quotes by Idries Shah
#151. When humility is exercised, people begin to realise that they do not, as it were, exist at all. #Quote by Idries Shah
Ego quotes by Robert Thurman
#152. The point is that you free the ego. The ego is only a pronoun. It's a Greek first person pronoun, ergo. When you're in Greece you say, Ergo wants to take a bus, and you don't mean your ego wants to take a bus, like some big entity, you only mean I want to take a bus. #Quote by Robert Thurman
Ego quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#153. So our ego has to be seen. It is to be watched in a witness state, how it works and how it tries to dissuade us from the right path of movement. One has to be only careful on that point because that is the last centre which has to be opened out. Once it is completely open, you are one with the Divine and all your problems will be solved because these problems are so frivolous and have no meaning. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Ego quotes by Aleister Crowley
#154. On the Path of the Wise there is probably no danger more deadly, no poison more pernicious, no seduction more subtle than Spiritual Pride; it strikes, being solar, at the very heart of the Aspirant; more, it is an inflation and exacerbation of the Ego, so that its victim runs the peril of straying into a Black Lodge, and finding himself at home there. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Ego quotes by Bert McCoy
#155. The ego is the ultimate conspirator. #Quote by Bert McCoy
Ego quotes by Taylor Hackford

Ego quotes by Valerie Harper
#161. I used to get some ego thing out of saying I wasn't a star, just an actress. Forget it. I'm a star. I wanted it. I worked for it. I got it. #Quote by Valerie Harper
Ego quotes by Oliver Sacks
#162. Transient states of depersonalisation are appreciably commoner during migraine auras. Freud reminds us that " ... the ego is first and foremost a body-ego ... the mental projection of the surface of the body." The sense of "self" appears to be based, fundamentally, on a continuous inference from the stability of body-image, the stability of outward perceptions, and the stability of time-perception. Feelings of ego-dissolution readily and promptly occur if there is serious disorder or instability of body-image, external perception, or time-perception, and all of these, as we have seen, may occur during the course of a migraine aura. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Ego quotes by Orson Scott Card
#163. If our systems should fail, we would faithfully report the fact. We have no ego-protection that would cause us to deceive you or ourselves. Whereasyou are engaged in ego-protection right now. You thought you would be necessary during the voyage, and you now discover that you were not. This makes you feel bad. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Ego quotes by A.J. Darkholme
#164. Far too many people allow broken egos and wounded prides to convince them to seek justice before they seek understanding. #Quote by A.J. Darkholme
Ego quotes by E.F. Schumacher
#165. The purpose of work is to give people a chance to utilize and develop their faculties; to enable them to overcome their ego-centeredness by joining others in a common task; and to bring for the goods and services needed for a becoming existence. #Quote by E.F. Schumacher
Ego quotes by Tom Lehrer

Ego quotes by Garey Gordon
#169. After character becomes imbued with conscious principles of love, integrity, and faith, it opens the door for purity and holiness to converge at the portals of the soul like sentinels guarding against any counter attacks from the ego. #Quote by Garey Gordon
Ego quotes by Arzum Uzun
#170. Don't feed your ego with my soul. #Quote by Arzum Uzun

Ego quotes by Alan W. Watts
#174. We do not need a new religion or a new bible. We need a new experience - a new feeling of what it is to be "I." The lowdown (which is, of course, the secret and profound view) on life is that our normal sensation of self is a hoax, or, at best, a temporary role that we are playing, or have been conned into playing - with our own tacit consent, just as every hypnotized person is basically willing to be hypnotized. The most strongly enforced of all known taboos is the taboo against knowing who or what you really are behind the mask of your apparently separate, independent, and isolated ego. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Ego quotes by Frederick Lenz
#175. When we interact with others the ego manifests. We have to show that we're superior or that we know more, are more spiritual, evolved - or that we're the worst, everyone is better. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Ego quotes by Colleen Hoover
#176. You're attracted to me?" "Oh, God," I groan. "That's the last thing you need for your ego." "That's probably true," he laughs. "Better hurry up and insult me before my ego gets as big as yours." "You need a hair cut," I blurt out. "Really bad. It gets in your eyes and you squint and you're constantly moving it out of the way like you're Justin Bieber and it's really distracting. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Ego quotes by Colleen Hoover
#177. Give me your phone number," I say.

"As long as you aren't planning to text me pics of your ego stroking after school."

I laugh and clutch at my heart. "Dammit, Six. I love every single word that comes out of your mouth."

"Cock," she says dryly.

She's evil. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Ego quotes by Darren Boyd

Ego quotes by Andrew Samuels
#180. People's need to protect their own egos know no bounds. They will lie, cheat, steal, even kill, to do whatever it takes to maintain what we call ego boundries. #Quote by Andrew Samuels
Ego quotes by Sigmund Freud
#181. Humanity has in the course of time had to endure from the hands of science two great outrages upon its naive self-love. The first was when it realized that our earth was not the center of the universe, but only a tiny speck in a world-system of a magnitude hardly conceivable; this is associated in our minds with the name of Copernicus, although Alexandrian doctrines taught something very similar. The second was when biological research robbed man of his peculiar privilege of having been specially created, and relegated him to a descent from the animal world, implying an ineradicable animal nature in him: this transvaluation has been accomplished in our own time upon the instigation of Charles Darwin, Wallace, and their predecessors, and not without the most violent opposition from their contemporaries. But man's craving for grandiosity is now suffering the third and most bitter blow from present-day psychological research which is endeavoring to prove to the ego of each one of us that he is not even master in his own house, but that he must remain content with the veriest scraps of information about what is going on unconsciously in his own mind. We psycho-analysts were neither the first nor the only ones to propose to mankind that they should look inward; but it appears to be our lot to advocate it most insistently and to support it by empirical evidence which touches every man closely. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Ego quotes by Jeff Tweedy
#182. That's something that I think as a songwriter you have to ask yourself - why you're doing it. The world certainly doesn't need more songs. Are you doing it just for your ego? #Quote by Jeff Tweedy
Ego quotes by Harry Harrison
#183. I went to sleep with the tape player whispering softly in my ears such ego-building epigrams as, 'You are better than everyone else and you know it, and people who don't know it had better watch out,' and 'They are all fools and if you were in charge things would be different, and why aren't you in charge, it's easy enough. #Quote by Harry Harrison
Ego quotes by Carol Devine
#184. You think I'll succumb after a ten second kiss?"

The man had an ego of an elephant. She measured the knowing curve of his smile, the infuriating glint in his eyes and knew she could stand anything for ten seconds. All she had to do was clamp her jaw and she'd win. Victory was at hand.

"Okay, Masterson. You're on. #Quote by Carol Devine

Ego quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#186. To the ego, the present moment hardly exists. Only past and future are considered important. This total reversal of the truth accounts for the fact that in the ego mode the mind is so dysfunctional. It is always concerned with keeping the past alive, because without it - who are you? #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Ego quotes by George Steiner
#187. Fischer does not merely outplay opponents; he leaves them bodily and mentally glutted. Fisher himself speaks of the exultant instant in which he feels the 'ego of the other player crumbling.' #Quote by George Steiner
Ego quotes by Debasish Mridha
#188. The ego always wants to compete and win, but the spirit always wants to find unity and harmony. #Quote by Debasish Mridha

#189. Whether it's personal foibles or a bureaucrat's ego, the stubborn defence of stupidity is unforgivable. #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Ego quotes by Nora Roberts
#190. It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices. Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls, over the years.
Wasn't it, after all, a kind of life?
And there were houses, he knew it, that breathed. They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Ego quotes by Tennessee Williams
#191. Vanity, fear, desire, competition - all such distortions within our own egos - condition our vision of those in relation to us. Add to those distortions to our own egos the corresponding distortions in the egos of others, and you see how cloudy the glass must become through which we look at each other. #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Ego quotes by William Gibson
#192. Beyond ego, beyond personality, beyond awareness, he moved, Kuang moving with him, evading his attackers with an ancient dance, Hideo's dance, grace of the mind-body interface granted him, in that second, by the clarity and singleness of his wish to die. #Quote by William Gibson
Ego quotes by Peter Santos
#193. Judgment…is one of the ego's tools to foster separation through comparison. #Quote by Peter Santos
Ego quotes by Rachel Pollack
#194. Do not confuse the 'subconscious' with the 'unconscious', whose attributes include courage as well as true knowledge. A great deal of confusion has resulted from the use of these two terms as synonymous. I am using the term 'subconscious' here to stand for material -desires, anxieties, fears, hopes - repressed by the conscious mind as it deals with the outer realities of life. 'Unconscious' means the absic energy of life, that area of being beyond the ego. The subconscious, despite its hidden qualities, is really an extension of the ego. In a sense, it embodies the ego's absolute domain, that realm where it makes no compromises with reality. Because it does not concern itself with consequences the subconscious will walk you in front of a truck to avoid an unpleasant conversation. The unconscious on the other hand, balances and supports us by joining us to the great surge of life beyond our individual selves. The Hanged Man in the Major Arcana gives us a powerful image of this vital connection. #Quote by Rachel Pollack
Ego quotes by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
#195. Whatever plane our consciousness may be acting in, both we and the things belonging to that plane are, for the time being, our only realities. As we rise in the scale of development we perceive that during the stages through which we have passed we mistook shadows for realities, and the upward progress of the Ego is a series of progressive awakenings, each advance bringing with it the idea that now, at last, we have reached "reality"; but only when we shall have reached the absolute Consciousness, and blended our own with it, shall we be free from the delusions produced by Maya [illusion]. #Quote by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Ego quotes by Wayne Dyer
#196. Good morning, this is God. I will be handling all of your problems today. I will not need your help, so have a miraculous day. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Ego quotes by Andrew Cohen
#197. The authentic self is the best part of a human being. It's the part of you that already cares, that is already passionate about evolution. When your authentic self miraculously awakens and becomes stronger than your ego, then you will truly begin to make a difference in this world. You will literally enter into a partnership with the creative principle. #Quote by Andrew Cohen
Ego quotes by Sigmund Freud
#198. A transference neurosis corresponds to a conflict between ego and id, a narcissistic neurosis corresponds to that between between ego and super-ego, and a psychosis to that between ego and outer world. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Ego quotes by Aldous Huxley
#199. It is ignorance that causes us to identify ourselves with the body, the ego, the senses, or anything that is not the Atman. He is a wise man who overcomes this ignorance by devotion to the Atman. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Ego quotes by Frederick Lenz
#200. For men, it's necessary to push aside that marvelous ego that tells you that you are all knowing and capable, and see that you are not. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
