Knowing Oneself quotes by Kate Bolick
#6. Being single is like being an artist, not because creating a functional single life is an art form, but because it requires the same close attention to one's singular needs, as well as the will and focus to fulfill them. Just as the artist arranges her life around her creativity, sacrificing conventional comforts and even social acceptance, sleeping and eating according to her own rhythms, so that her talent thrives above all else, nurtured the way a child might be, so a single person has to think hard to decipher what makes her happiest and most fulfilled. #Quote by Kate Bolick
Knowing Oneself quotes by J. Wrice Sr.

Knowing Oneself quotes by Nico J. Genes
#8. How well do we actually know ourselves? Can we dare to say that we really know someone, like really, really know them? #Quote by Nico J. Genes
Knowing Oneself quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#9. To know oneself is one of the most difficult things because in the observation of myself I come to a conclusion about what I am seeing; and the next observation is through that conclusion. Can one observe the actual anger without any conclusion, without saying right, wrong, good, bad? Can one observe holistically? Self-knowledge is not knowing oneself, but knowing every movement of thought. Because the self is the thought, the image, the image of K and the image of the `me.' So, watch every movement of thought, never letting one thought go without realizing what it is. Try it. Do it and you will see what takes place. This gives muscle to the brain.
from: Exploration into Insight, Foreword #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Knowing Oneself quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Knowing Oneself quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#13. How frustrating to think you can be lost to yourself. And yet how often it is that a stranger stares back at you from the mirror. Maybe in truth we never see ourselves as clearly as the thousands of eyes that daily take us in. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Knowing Oneself quotes by Bruce Lee

Knowing Oneself quotes by Garon Whited

#22. One is always in the dark about one's own personality. One needs others to get to know oneself. #Quote by Carl Jung
Knowing Oneself quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#23. So, if we really want to create a different world, a different relationship between human beings, a different attitude toward life, it is essential that we should first understand ourselves, is it not? This does not mean self-centered concentration, which leads to utter misery. What I am suggesting is that without self-knowledge, without deeply knowing oneself, all inquiry, all thought, all conclusions, opinions, and values have very little meaning. Most of us are conditioned - conditioned as Christians, as Muslims, or what you will, and within that narrow area we have our being. Our minds are conditioned by society, by education, by the culture about us, and without understanding the total process of that conditioning, our search, our knowledge, our inquiry can only lead to further mischief, to greater misery, which is what is actually happening. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Knowing Oneself quotes by Joyce Carol Oates

Knowing Oneself quotes by L.J. Vanier
#31. We are in fact living organisms that exist in a living universe #Quote by L.J. Vanier
Knowing Oneself quotes by Adolf Guggenbuhl-Craig
#32. Marriage is not comfortable and harmonious. Rather it is a place of individuation where a person rubs up against oneself and against the partner, bumps up against the person in love and in rejection, and in this fashion learns to know oneself, the world, good and evil, the heights and the depths. #Quote by Adolf Guggenbuhl-Craig
Knowing Oneself quotes by Robin Rumi
#33. It came to me in whole form… that the energy of the Universe swirled and coalesced and formed into suns and cooling planets orbiting those suns. And on the planets (one specifically that I know of) the energy started swirling and coalescing into electrons and forming molecules and those merged and joined and formed microscopic life, that in turn gave rise to aquatic things, and plants and animals and beings that walked on two legs that loved and had children that in turn loved. So that all the planet is connected by the energy of the Universe, and I am part of it. #Quote by Robin Rumi

Knowing Oneself quotes by Jonathan Bailey
#38. As I awaken in the mornings I have visions... in the moment, the sun is either going to set or its going to rise... because if it should not do either.. the planet would not evolve. We are all apart of the Universe.. for if we do or we don't will have the same impact. #Quote by Jonathan Bailey
Knowing Oneself quotes by Sydney J. Harris

#40. We readily rebel against our knowledge than our ignorance. #Quote by Kangoma Kindembo
Knowing Oneself quotes by Fran Seen
#41. My takeaway from all of Ophelia's sessions was that life favored value. The world was bursting with opportunity. If you didn't like who you were, it was time to reinvent yourself and try again. It was a disservice to the universe to cheat everyone of your talents. And if you were at your wit's end, thinking you had nothing to offer, it was essential to cultivate value within yourself in order to move forward. In order to live beyond existence. In order to turn your pain into something beautiful. #Quote by Fran Seen
Knowing Oneself quotes by Franz Grillparzer
#42. Even with limited intelligence, knowing oneself is not as difficult as some say, but to act according to what one has realized about oneself in real life is as difficult as practicing anything else, compared to theory. #Quote by Franz Grillparzer
Knowing Oneself quotes by Bryant McGill
#43. Connecting with yourself and knowing yourself is a monumental and life changing event. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Knowing Oneself quotes by Maria Flynn
#44. I trust the Universe Implicitly, therefore my experience is happening FOR me and not TO me. I trust the Universe. I trust the process. #Quote by Maria Flynn
Knowing Oneself quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#45. Self-denial means knowing only Christ, no longer knowing oneself. It means no longer seeing oneself, only him who is going ahead, no longer seeing the way which is too difficult for us. Self-denial says only: he is going ahead; hold fast to him. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Knowing Oneself quotes by Penny Reid
#46. Have you ever read Bertrand Russell?" "No. Who is that?" "He was a mathematician. Anyway, he said, 'Those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision.' I think that's especially true with knowing oneself. As soon as you grow certain of something, you've closed your mind to other possibilities. #Quote by Penny Reid
Knowing Oneself quotes by Albert Camus
#47. Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. #Quote by Albert Camus
Knowing Oneself quotes by Joyce Rachelle

Knowing Oneself quotes by Christine Feehan
#51. I have to figure out why I worked at a job I hated for years. I have to find out why I can't see what everyone else sees in me. I don't feel beautiful. When I look in the mirror, I never saw beautiful. For this to happen to someone like me, it's devastating, Jonas. I don't want you to think it's vanity, it isn't. I can't see me and I need to be able to do that. I need to find out what I'm like and what I want. I have to be comfortable in my own skin before I can be in a relationship the way you want. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Knowing Oneself quotes by Richie Norton
#52. Truly being authentic is knowing what matters to you, on the deepest level of who you are, and committing always to act from that authentic center. #Quote by Richie Norton
Knowing Oneself quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#53. To know our own self is bliss. To see themselves clearly, a person must plunge themselves into the world they inhabit. We enhance our personal perspective by acquiring knowledge of the world. The more one knows about living through vivid personal encounters in the world that they occupy, the more that a person will come to understand him or herself. Self-knowledge requires an honest accounting of a person's experiences, frank admission of their furtive desires, and gracious acceptance of reality without surrendering their willingness to work to improve oneself and comfort other people. By attaching images to their real life experiences and secret dreams, a person learns rightly about the world. By writing about what adversities they experienced, a person can consciously go about integrating new ideas into their way of living. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Knowing Oneself quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#54. A man who finds peace in the fume of his work is a man who knows himself and, therefore, knows what he must do. What is it that I would sacrifice myself to achieve? What is it that fills my lonely days and dowdy nights? What work consoles the soul? What action allows the brain to work at a fever, burn like an uncontrollable wildfire? What occupation, craft, or deed can I undertake that will embody a desire to share with other people my intellectual and emotional being? How does one express their worldly aspirations and spiritual yearnings? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Knowing Oneself quotes by Joyce Rachelle
#55. Where you go when you travel is as important as where you are in your life when you do. #Quote by Joyce Rachelle
Knowing Oneself quotes by Criss Jami
#56. Ingredients to success: know what you do well, know what to do well, and know someone who's swell. #Quote by Criss Jami

Knowing Oneself quotes by Anthony Liccione
#58. A small world where people know each other, and still so deep, able to get lost. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Knowing Oneself quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#59. To know oneself is, above all, to know what one lacks. It is to measure oneself against Truth, and not the other way around. The first product of self-knowledge is humility ... #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Knowing Oneself quotes by Martin R. Lemieux
#60. Your spiritual path isn't always just something you find, you started it the moment you took your first breath, and ever since you're been getting closer and closer to remembering who you truly are! #Quote by Martin R. Lemieux

Knowing Oneself quotes by Charles F. Glassman

Knowing Oneself quotes by Majid Kazmi
#64. It may sound paradoxical, but strength comes from vulnerability. You have to ask the question to get the answer, even though asking the question means you didn't know. #Quote by Majid Kazmi
Knowing Oneself quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#65. wisdom is great, but sometimes, those who think they are wiser than others can become the otherwise #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Knowing Oneself quotes by Albert Camus

Knowing Oneself quotes by Jodi Picoult
#67. [...]You can take the pink hair dye out of the girl, but you never lose those roots."

I took another sip of the martini. "You don't know me."

At the end of the bar, the other customer lifted his face to Peter Jennings and smiled.

"Maybe," Seven said, "but neither do you. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Knowing Oneself quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#68. To know oneself is not necessarily to improve oneself #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Knowing Oneself quotes by Franz Grillparzer

Knowing Oneself quotes by Ahmed Mostafa
#71. I'm everything that you're not. #Quote by Ahmed Mostafa
Knowing Oneself quotes by Ernest Vincent Wright
#72. Oh, how an animal that is hurt looks up at you, John! An animal's actions can inform you if it is in pain. It don't hop and jump around as usual. No. You find a sad, crouching, cringing, small bunch of fur or hair, whining, and plainly asking you to aid it. It isn't hard to find out what is wrong, John; any man or woman who would pass by such a sight, just isn't worth knowing. I just can't withstand it! Why, I think that not only animals, but plants can know pain. I carry a drink to many a poor, thirsty growing thing; or, if it is torn up I put it kindly back, and fix its soil up as comfortably as I can. Anything that is living, John, is worthy of Man's aid. #Quote by Ernest Vincent Wright
Knowing Oneself quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#73. She said there was comfort to be found in the permanence of mathematical truths, in the lack of arbitrariness and the absence of ambiguity. In knowing that the answers may be elusive, but they could be found. They were there, waiting, chalk scribbles away. "Nothing like life, in other words," he said. "There, it's questions with either no answers or messy ones. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Knowing Oneself quotes by Louise Hay
#74. My day begins with gratitude and joy. I look forward with enthusiasm to the adventures of the day, knowing that in my life, All is good. #Quote by Louise Hay
Knowing Oneself quotes by Mary Pipher
#75. Maturity involves being honest and true to oneself, making decisions based on a conscious internal process, assuming responsibility for one's decisions, having healthy relationships with others and developing one's own true gifts. It involves thinking about one's environment and deciding what one will and won't accept. #Quote by Mary Pipher
Knowing Oneself quotes by Mencius
#76. All people have the common desire to be elevated in honour, but all people have something still more elevated in themselves without knowing it. #Quote by Mencius
Knowing Oneself quotes by Hope Solo
#77. My No. 1 goal, and what I've spent my entire life striving to achieve is to win a World Cup. I want to retire so badly with that World Cup, but if I don't, then I'll retire knowing that I've done everything I could to get it. #Quote by Hope Solo
Knowing Oneself quotes by Kristin Cashore
#78. It's not fair. It's not fair, she cried, knowing it was a child's argument but not caring, because being childish did not make it untrue. #Quote by Kristin Cashore
Knowing Oneself quotes by Alice Walker
#79. They were women then
My mama's generation
Husky of voice stout of
With fists as well as
How they battered down
And ironed
Starched white
How they led
Headragged generals
Across mined
To discover books
A place for us
How they knew what we
MUST know
Without knowing a page
Of it
Themselves. #Quote by Alice Walker

Knowing Oneself quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#81. The secret to responsible trust is acceptance. Acceptance is taking from God's hand absolutely anything He gives, looking into His face in trust and thanksgiving, knowing that the confinement of the hedge we're in is good and for His glory. Even though what we're enduring may be painful, it's good simply because God Himself has allowed it. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Knowing Oneself quotes by Maureen McKade
#82. How was she to endure knowing he was in town these next two weeks, without throwing herself into his arms again? She would hide in her home and not come out until the day of the wedding. Yes, that was the only solution. #Quote by Maureen McKade
Knowing Oneself quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#83. A restless human heart always seeks to increase personal understanding and works to attain excellence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Knowing Oneself quotes by Julie James

Knowing Oneself quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#85. The size of one's house might bear a relationship to the size of one's opinion of oneself, but it had nothing to do with one's real worth. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Knowing Oneself quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#86. To know God and to live is the same thing. God is Life. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Knowing Oneself quotes by Ariel Garten
#87. I've always been fascinated with knowing the self. This fascination led me to submerge myself in art, study neuroscience, and later to become a psychotherapist. #Quote by Ariel Garten
Knowing Oneself quotes by Sigrid Nunez
#88. Rather than write about what you know, you told us, write about what you see. Assume that you know very little and that you'll never know much until you learn how to see. #Quote by Sigrid Nunez
Knowing Oneself quotes by Mark Lawrence

Knowing Oneself quotes by James McBride
#92. Writer or a musician, not knowing that it was possible #Quote by James McBride
Knowing Oneself quotes by Sylvia Boorstein
#93. Knowing the truth brings happiness. #Quote by Sylvia Boorstein
Knowing Oneself quotes by Dave Eggers
#94. It was as if, for a moment, she thought Mae was one kind of person, but now, knowing she was another, she could part with her, she could give her back to the world. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Knowing Oneself quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#95. I feel ashamed that so many of us cannot imagine a better way to do things than locking children up all day in cells instead of letting them grow up knowing their families, mingling with the world, assuming real obligations, striving to be independent and self-reliant and free. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Knowing Oneself quotes by Kenzaburo Oe
#96. Every morning, I have woken up knowing that I will never run out of books to read. That has been my life. #Quote by Kenzaburo Oe
Knowing Oneself quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#97. He can read your mind without even knowing."
Dee's face went from pale to bright cherry. "Oh God."
She smacked her hands over her face. "Well, the whole time we were downstairs, I was picturing him naked. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Knowing Oneself quotes by J.D. Robb
#98. He knew he was slipping. Blood was dripping down his arm, through his fingers. He'd faced death before, was no stranger to the sensation of knowing this breath, this one breath, could be the last you drew.
But he'd be damned if it would. Not when his woman was watching him with terrified eyes, calling to him, risking her life to save his. He set his teeth, gave his injured arm his weight. Pain swam sickly in his head, into his gut as he reached up to her.
And her hand gripped his, firm and strong. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Knowing Oneself quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#99. The more we speak of solitude, the clearer it becomes that at the bottom it is not something one can choose to take or leave. We are lonely. One can deceive oneself about it and act as if it were not so. That is all. But it is so much better to see that we are so, indeed even to presuppose it. It will make us dizzy, of course; because all the focal points on which our eyes were used to resting are taken away from us, there is nothing near us anymore, and everything distant is infinitely distant. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Knowing Oneself quotes by Mattie J.T. Stepanek
#100. While we are living in the present, we must celebrate life every day, knowing that we are becoming history with every work, every action, every deed. #Quote by Mattie J.T. Stepanek
Knowing Oneself quotes by Coleman Dowell
#101. All there is, is fragments, because a man, even the loneliest of the species, is divided among several persons, animals, worlds. To know a man more than slightly it would be necessary to gather him together from all those quarters, each last scrap of him, and this done after he is safely dead. #Quote by Coleman Dowell
Knowing Oneself quotes by K. Bromberg
#102. Without knowing anything else about him, i already know he'd be worth the hurt. #Quote by K. Bromberg
Knowing Oneself quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#103. Memories keep us stay alive as they gently cuddle us along the squirming roads of our lives and even warn us sometimes of insidious pitfalls. ("Knowing someone was waiting") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Knowing Oneself quotes by Francois Lelord
#104. It's one thing thinking something and another thing knowing it. #Quote by Francois Lelord
Knowing Oneself quotes by Cassandra Clare
#105. And broken both your hearts? How would that have benefited me? You are as dear to me as another half of my soul, Jem. I could not be happy while you were unhappy. And Tessa - she loves you. What sort of awful monster would I be, delighting in causing the two people I love the most in the world agony simply that I might have the satisfaction of knowing that if Tessa could not be mine, she could not be anybody's? #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Knowing Oneself quotes by Erich Fromm
#106. Frequently, and not only in the popular usage, sadomasochism is confounded with
love. Masochistic phenomena, especially, are looked upon as expressions of love.
An attitude of complete self-denial for the sake of another person and the
surrender of one's own rights and claims to another person have been praised as
examples of "great love". It seems that there is no better proof for "love" than
sacrifice and the readiness to give oneself up for the sake of the beloved person.
Actually, in these cases, "love" is essentially a masochistic yearning and rooted in the symbiotic need of the person involved. #Quote by Erich Fromm

Knowing Oneself quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#108. In absence of consciousness, human beings would merely be animated material objects. Without the synergistic impact of consciousness, free will, and perception of a cohesive self, which act to direct human conduct, many of the qualities that we associate with our humanness would be moot or superfluous delusions including laughter and pain, memories and thoughts, love and anger, imagination and dreams. Without consciousness and free will, humankind would lack the ability to choose right from wrong and there could be no mental discipline directing each person's lifestyle, attitudes, and belief systems. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Knowing Oneself quotes by Jay Samit
#109. Never expect that your startup can cover every aspect of the market. The key is knowing what segment will respond to your unique offering. Who your product appeals to is just as important as the product itself. #Quote by Jay Samit
Knowing Oneself quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#110. Each minute, not knowing if Jacob was breathing or not, had seemed like ten lifetimes. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Knowing Oneself quotes by R.D. Laing
#111. we are all murderers and prostitutes – no matter to what culture, society, class, nation one belongs, no matter how normal, moral, or mature, one takes oneself to be. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Knowing Oneself quotes by Jacqueline Carey
#112. In the arts of covertcy, it is death to second-guess oneself. #Quote by Jacqueline Carey
Knowing Oneself quotes by Joshua Ferris
#113. We hated not knowing something. We hated not knowing who was going to walk Spanish down the hall. How would our bills get paid? And where would we find new work? We knew the power of the credit card companies and the collection agencies and the consequences of bankruptcy. Those institutions were without appeal. They put your name into a system, and from that point forward, vital parts of the American dream were foreclosed upon. A backyard swimming pool. A long weekend in Vegas. A low-end BMW. These were not Jeffersonian ideals, perhaps, on par with life and liberty, but at this advanced stage, with the West won and the Cold War over, they, too, seemed among our inalienable rights. #Quote by Joshua Ferris

Knowing Oneself quotes by Melanie Joy
#116. Yet on some level we do know the truth. We know that meat production is a messy business, but we choose not to know just how messy it is. We know that meat comes from an animal, but we choose not to connect the dots. And often, we eat animals and choose not to know we're even making a choice. Violent ideologies are structured so that it is not only possible, but inevitable, that we are aware of an unpleasant truth on one level while being oblivious to it on another. Common to all violent ideologies is this phenomenon of knowing without knowing. #Quote by Melanie Joy

Knowing Oneself quotes by Stephen Daldry
#119. Actually, to be honest, this is a useful time to not be knowing what I'll be doing in 2013 or 2014, because really, for the last however many years, I've known what I've been doing for years and years ahead. You get into a cycle of non-reflection, and that gets a bit scary. #Quote by Stephen Daldry
Knowing Oneself quotes by Ann Marie Aguilar
#120. Depression exist without you knowing it, even denying it. It is not an illusion. You don't even know you're in it. It takes awhile before you realize it. If you deny it, it means your still in there or else you won't talk about your misery and the dramas in your life. #Quote by Ann Marie Aguilar
