Self Esteem quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#22. In addition, if a person makes the error of identifying self with his work (rather than with the internal virtues that make the work possible), if self-esteem is tied primarily to accomplishments, success, income, or being a good family provider, the danger is that economic circumstances beyond the individual's control may lead to the failure of the business or the loss of a job, flinging him into depression or acute demoralization. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden

Self Esteem quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#25. If we have parents who raise us with love and respect; who allow us to experience consistent and benevolent acceptance; who give us the supporting structure of reasonable rules and appropriate expectations; who do not assail us with contradictions; who do not resort to ridicule, humiliation, or physical abuse as means of controlling us; who project that they believe in our competence and goodness - we have a decent chance of internalizing their attitudes and thereby of acquiring the foundation for healthy self-esteem. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Self Esteem quotes by James Patterson
#26. I smiled, sipped deliciously at my drink, and made a new rule for myself: if life hands you a compliment, take it. #Quote by James Patterson

Self Esteem quotes by Alexandra Katehakis
#28. Endow yourself with healthy self-esteem. What is the feeling tone in your life that radiates in you and makes you shine, that makes you feel whole, that makes you feel your heart? That feeling tone, which we long to hear from others, is the tone we want to practice with ourselves. That's where we want to live with ourselves. It doesn't happen from the outside in. That's why it's called self-esteem. #Quote by Alexandra Katehakis
Self Esteem quotes by Hugh Grant
#29. If you have a smothering parent, the effect it can apparently have on a child is to give them, in equal doses, a sense of too much self-esteem, because they are mummy's little princess or prince, and low self-esteem. It affects future relationships. #Quote by Hugh Grant

Self Esteem quotes by Thomas Merton
#41. The complacency of the individual who admires his own excellence is bad enough, but it is more respectable than the complacency of the man who has no self-esteem because he has not even a superficial self which he can esteem. He is not a person, not an individual, only an atom. This atomized existence is sometimes praised as humility or as self-sacrifice, some-times it is called obedience, sometimes it is devotion to the dialectic of class war. It produces a kind of peace which is not peace, but only the escape from an immediately urgent sense of conflict. It is the peace not of love but of anesthesia. It is the peace not of self-realization and self-dedication, but of flight into irresponsibility. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Self Esteem quotes by Maddy Malhotra
#42. A sad truth is that we don't know what we really believe! We don't know how we operate. We don't know what is holding us back. We don't know why we do what we do. #Quote by Maddy Malhotra
Self Esteem quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#43. Be self-indulgent, and those who are also self-indulgent will like you. Tear your neighbor to pieces, and the other neighbors will laugh. But if you beat your soul, all souls will cry out. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#45. Never say never. It is possible. I know it is because I didn't think I would have gotten this far. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#46. You don't' have to fear. You only need to have faith. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Esteem quotes by Nia Peeples
#47. With women, the way they look ... it's the core of their self-esteem. #Quote by Nia Peeples
Self Esteem quotes by Jane Olson
#48. Having low self-esteem and a shield of lard are not guarantees of safety. Having a warrior spirit, high self worth (most people are assaulted by someone they know, so if you think you're only worthy of hanging out with controlling low-life's, that's who you'll attract into your circle) and the ability to run, hit, kick and holler loudly are far more effective weapons against victimization. #Quote by Jane Olson
Self Esteem quotes by Benjamin Hoff
#49. No matter how useful we may be, sometimes it takes us a while to recognize our own value. #Quote by Benjamin Hoff
Self Esteem quotes by Kimberly Giles
#50. If you spend your energy condemning and judging the people who mistreat you it puts you in a condemning and judging mindset, which subconsciously makes you feel condemned and judged too. The more judgmental you are, the worse your self-esteem will be. #Quote by Kimberly Giles
Self Esteem quotes by Victoria Moran
#51. If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it - through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated. #Quote by Victoria Moran
Self Esteem quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#52. High self esteem people can surely be knocked down by an excess of troubles, but they are quickerto pick themselves up again. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Self Esteem quotes by Heather Hill
#53. The perfect body protects its owner from disease, gives birth to amazing new people and stops your bones from falling out. The end. #Quote by Heather Hill
Self Esteem quotes by Malebo Sephodi
#54. Look within - there is no end! #Quote by Malebo Sephodi
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#55. How much better is it going to get than this?" I do not know - but I cannot wait to find out! #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Ernest Becker
#56. In man a working level of narcissism is inseparable from self-esteem, from a basic sense of self-worth. We have learned, mostly from Alfred Adler, that what man needs most is to feel secure in his self-esteem. But man is not just a blind glob of idling protoplasm, but a creature with a name who lives in a world of symbols, on an abstract idea of his own worth, an idea composed of sounds, words, and images, in the air, in the mind, on paper. And this means that man's natural yearning for organismic activity, the pleasures of incorporation and expansion, can be fed limitlessly in the domain of symbols and so into immortality. The single organism can expand into dimensions of worlds and times without moving a physical limb; it can take eternity into itself even as it gaspingly dies. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Self Esteem quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#57. The greatest action is the grace to define sacred-self. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#58. I had to fake it until I made it, but sadly, I never made it until today. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#59. I always imagined that you might write something about me. I wanted to leave an imprint on your life. I don't want to be "just another patient". I wanted to be "special". I want to be something, anything. I feel like nothing, no one. If I left an imprint on your life, maybe I would be someone, someone you wouldn't forget. I'd exist then. (Marge's letter to Yalom) #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Self Esteem quotes by Anna Chlumsky
#60. I didn't want to go down any scarier path of low self-esteem than I was already on the track for. So during my second year of college I was like, 'I'm over it! I have to go see what this other thing called life is about!' #Quote by Anna Chlumsky
Self Esteem quotes by Irena Deneva
#61. I cannot conceive of a greater loss than the loss of one's self-respect. Decedents of the beautiful women that fought so hard for centuries to be equal and not objects of men's will, only their achievement to die in vain. As today's woman single desire is to be any men's object by any means on her part. Talk about irony ... #Quote by Irena Deneva
Self Esteem quotes by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
#62. We are more alike than different. We Are One. #Quote by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#63. I have people who love me and who wouldn't give up on me - and that is a wonderful feeling. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Michael Arceneaux
#64. I couldn't make someone love me. I couldn't make myself desirable to someone who didn't want me. I couldn't compel someone to see me in the same way in which I wanted to be seen. All I could do was be myself, and if someone didn't fool with me, find someone else. #Quote by Michael Arceneaux
Self Esteem quotes by Ram Dayal Munda
#65. To separate the Adivasi from his land is to stop his breathing. If you want to see an Adivasi's extinction, take him away from his land- as it is happening at present. It is a strange irony that when the Adivasi could lead a life of self- reliance, he is being compelled to become disabled and parasitic. The Adivasi, after having been uprooted from his land through the establishment of big projects in the name of public interest and national development, is ending up in slums in the peripheries of modern cosmopolitan cities as an army of landless labourers and domestic servants losing altogether their self- reliance and self- esteem. #Quote by Ram Dayal Munda
Self Esteem quotes by Thomas J. Harbin
#66. This intense desire to control is an attempt to maintain dignity in spite of low self-regard. Think about it. In addition to keeping everything safe, the exercise of power temporarily boosts angry men's low self-esteem. [...] Like many kings and other powerful people, however, angry men will soon doubt the affection of those they control. They will always wonder if they are "really" loved by family members, or if their family is just acting that way out of fear. #Quote by Thomas J. Harbin
Self Esteem quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#67. Only individuals with an aberrant temperament can in the long run retain their self-esteem in the face of the disesteem of their fellows. #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Self Esteem quotes by Henry James
#68. She was a young person of many theories; her imagination was remarkably active. It had been her fortune to possess a finer mind than most of the persons among whom her lot was cast; to have a larger perception of surrounding facts, and to care for knowledge that was tinged with the unfamiliar...It may be affirmed without delay that She was probably very liable to the sin of self-esteem; she often surveyed with complacency the field of her own nature; she was in the habit of taking for granted, on scanty evidence, that she was right; impulsively, she often admired herself...Every now and then she found out she was wrong, and then she treated herself to a week of passionate humility. After this she held her head higher than ever again; for it was of no use, she had an unquenchable desire to think well of herself. She had a theory that it was only on this condition that life was worth living; that one should be one of the best, should be conscious of a fine organization, should move in the realm of light, of natural wisdom, of happy impulse, of inspiration gracefully chronic. #Quote by Henry James
Self Esteem quotes by Jessica Zafra
#69. We like to look for patterns and find connections in unrelated events. This way we can explain them to ourselves. Life seems neater, or at least less messy. We need to feel we are in control: it is integral to our self-esteem. We also know, though we deny it, that we are not in control. So we settle for the illusions of control. What if we stopped fooling ourselves? #Quote by Jessica Zafra
Self Esteem quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#70. Those who do not attempt to appear more than they are but are simply themselves, stand out as remarkable and are the only ones who truly make a difference in this world. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Self Esteem quotes by Brian Tracy
#71. Confidence on the outside begins by living with integrity on the inside. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Self Esteem quotes by Rafael García
#72. If you are to live in this world, then you must be willing to actively participate in life." You cannot just be an expectator. You cannot just be sitting down at the bleachers and comtemplate the game and expect to win. You are to step out of your comfortable zone. You are to participate and do your very best. Remember, "Every pro was once an amateur. Every expert was once a beginner." And every beginner once decided to step down from the bleachers and start participating.
Build a solid foundation for your life. Stay rooted in the Word. Don't let the holy things become common. Be disciplined and be committed. Sacrifice what you are to sacrifice in order to succeed. But never ever your values, integrity, character, and principles. Never give up nor give in.
Be aware that people will hate you on your way up. People will rate you. They'll will shake you and try to bring you down. "But how strong you stand, is what makes you."
Choose to live by choice not by chance.
Be motivated and not manipulated. BE useful not used. Make changes and not excuses. Aim to excel not to compete. Choose self-esteem, not self pitty.
Choose to listen to your inner voice, (which is GOd's word whispering to you) not to the random opinions of others.
And finally, choose to live for yourself and not to please others.
Word of advice, "make your goals so big, that your everyday problems seem insignificant."
Have a bless day #Quote by Rafael García
Self Esteem quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#73. I prayed that the Lord would help me to see my life from his point of view. It was then that I noticed it: as I looked around my house, I had dozens of PRIDE posters, T-shirts, coffee mugs. The flag that waved in the breeze at my porch was a PRIDE flag. Pride had become my best friend. In the LGBT world, we defined pride as a healthy self-esteem. But something started to crack a little and I dared to just ask the question: was I domesticating a tiger? #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Self Esteem quotes by Sam Owen
#74. Jealousy of another means you need to work on making you proud of yourself. #Quote by Sam Owen
Self Esteem quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#75. As you grow in self-esteem, your face, manner, way of talking and moving will tend naturally to project the pleasure you take in being alive. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden

Self Esteem quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#78. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. #Quote by Harvey Fierstein
Self Esteem quotes by Harriet Lerner
#79. Feeling essentially superior to other people is as sure a sign of poor self-esteem as feeling essentially inferior. #Quote by Harriet Lerner
Self Esteem quotes by Paul Wellstone
#80. I emphasize self-esteem, self-confidence, and dignity, not as an ideal, but as a real test of community organization. Without leadership development, community organizations do not have staying power. #Quote by Paul Wellstone
Self Esteem quotes by Randa Manning-Johnson
#81. Most are constantly asking for more, but with that comes more responsibility and most aren't willing to or able to handle that. Greatness comes at a cost and requires an investment. If you don't want the work.... you don't want the prize. #Quote by Randa Manning-Johnson
Self Esteem quotes by Teresa Mummert
#82. Never let the opinion of another affect your opinion of yourself. #Quote by Teresa Mummert
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#83. Nothing in life is easy. If it is, I don't think it is worth having. But if you work hard at it and never give in, once the doors open, it is rightfully yours because you've worked for it. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#84. The process of healing is draining, but it has to be done because this time around I am not half-stepping - I am going all the way. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Bruce Feiler
#85. A recent wave of research shows that children who eat dinner with their families are less likely to drink, smoke, do drugs, get pregnant, commit suicide, and develop eating disorders. Additional research found that children who enjoy family meals have larger vocabularies, better manners, healthier diets, and higher self-esteem. #Quote by Bruce Feiler
Self Esteem quotes by T.A. Uner
#86. Happiness isn't something you pick up at the grocery store, nor is it something that comes to you at a certain age. It's a trait that lives within all of us, and it flourishes when you begin appreciating the things in life we take for granted. #Quote by T.A. Uner
Self Esteem quotes by Aberjhani
#88. Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends. #Quote by Aberjhani
Self Esteem quotes by Naomi Wolf
#89. Today a woman must ignore her reflection in the eyes of her lover, since he might admire her, and seek it in the gaze of the God of Beauty, in whose perception she is never complete. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Self Esteem quotes by Wayne Dyer
#90. Be aware of your infinite connection to your source. Know that you're more than an encapsulated collection of bones, blood and organs in a skin and hair covered body. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Self Esteem quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

Self Esteem quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

Self Esteem quotes by David Levithan
#95. Self-esteem can be so exhausting. I want to cut my hair, change my clothes, erase the pimple from the near-tip of my nose, and strengthen my upper-arm definition, all in the next hour. #Quote by David Levithan
Self Esteem quotes by Yvonne Pierre
#96. There's something AMAZING about you. You owe it to yourself to fulfill your destiny. You were put on earth for a reason. Don't betray yourself because of other people opinions of who you should be. God has already implanted within you who you MEANT to be. Trust your gut instincts. #Quote by Yvonne Pierre
Self Esteem quotes by Avijeet Das
#97. There will be people who will attack you and your convictions. You cannot bow down to them. Accept with humility if anything is right and move on. Don't waste your time in proving others wrong! #Quote by Avijeet Das

Self Esteem quotes by Bill Bartmann
#102. All the successful people I knew in life had high self-esteem and all the losers had low self-esteem. #Quote by Bill Bartmann
Self Esteem quotes by Martha Medeiros
#103. You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don't know.

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice. #Quote by Martha Medeiros
Self Esteem quotes by Anneli Rufus
#104. Often the circumstances in which we lost our self-esteem were relationships distinguished by a steeply unequal power balance.
Our spellcasters were parents. Teachers. Bullies. So-called friends. Strangers. Romantic partners. Cliques. Coworkers. Your spellcaster was the mean first grader. Or the psycho in the dark. Or the town, school, Scout troop, spiritual community, family, neighborhood that did not understand your type, whatever that type was. Your spellcaster could even be society at large, that nameless, faceless "them" with boundless power and a thousand biases.
And it became unbearable to be the bullied one, the hounded one, the outcast and excluded one. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, the old saying goes. Others hated us, or appeared to. We joined 'em. #Quote by Anneli Rufus
Self Esteem quotes by Robert T. Kiyosaki
#105. It's not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it's what you whisper to yourself that has the most power! #Quote by Robert T. Kiyosaki
Self Esteem quotes by Adriana Trigiani
#106. At long last, somebody believes in her. Tonight in this exchange she has gained the tools with which she will build her self esteem: She has been chosen and she has security. Maybe this is all that a person ever needs to succeed. Pearl has been picked, and that has begun to define her. #Quote by Adriana Trigiani
Self Esteem quotes by Nancy Rue
#107. My hair is not the shiniest of bobs
My eyes are not the brightest in the room
My figure will not get me modeling jobs
My smile will not bring young boys to their doom.
But do I cry and mourn my average face?
Or wish that I had boyfriends at the ready?
Do I not sleep because I lose the race,
Or spurn my food because I don't go steady?
My mind is on a more important thing
That lifts my heart and makes my spirit soar
I want to make the souls of people sing
And quiet down the mean and bullying roar.
To help the wounded girls replace the scar
With the right to be exactly who they are. #Quote by Nancy Rue
Self Esteem quotes by Renee Fredrickson
#108. Empowerment is something that happens throughout your healing, as courage and success in facing your memories build your self-esteem. Some of the strengths you get from taking on your buried memories does not show up in your life until long after the resolution has been achieved. #Quote by Renee Fredrickson
Self Esteem quotes by Deborah Day
#109. Rewriting the negative beliefs you have learned is the essence of becoming the director of your life. #Quote by Deborah Day
Self Esteem quotes by Jacqueline Simon Gunn
#110. Never again, would I use someone's
approval as a thermometer for
my self-worth. #Quote by Jacqueline Simon Gunn
Self Esteem quotes by Sapphire
#111. I wanna say I am somebody. I wanna say it on subway, TV, movie, LOUD. I see the pink faces in suits look over top of my head. I watch myself disappear in their eyes, their tesses. I talk loud but still I don't exist. #Quote by Sapphire
Self Esteem quotes by Eva Mendes
#112. It's flattering that people think I'm sexy, but it's not the end-all, be-all. The minute I put my self-esteem on what they think I am, I'm screwed, because one day they're not going to think I'm sexy. #Quote by Eva Mendes
Self Esteem quotes by Howard Stern
#113. I still feel like I gotta prove something. There are a lot of people hoping I fail. But I like that. I need to be hated. #Quote by Howard Stern
Self Esteem quotes by Joseph Ejiro
#114. I'm above crawling on my knees for certain favors. What you cannot give me: I cannot beg for it. This is not arrogance or pride. This is having a clear understanding of my self worth.‪ #Quote by Joseph Ejiro
Self Esteem quotes by Melody Beattie
#115. Embrace and love all of yourself - past, present, and future. Forgive yourself quickly and as often as necessary. Encourage yourself. Tell yourself good things about yourself. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Self Esteem quotes by Annastacia Dickerson
#116. For me, the times that I dressed provocatively had been empowering. It felt good. It's those times that I felt comfortable in my own skin. Like really, really comfortable. And let's face it, body self-esteem issues are a hurdle many women struggle to overcome.
So when a person tears a woman down for how's she's dressed, they are tearing her down at a moment she feels at the top of her game. That's where the real shame is - not in how a woman is dressed, but in the desire to minimise her self-worth and empowerment. That's not kind, or well meaning. It's rude and cruel. #Quote by Annastacia Dickerson
Self Esteem quotes by Jeekeshen Chinnappen

Self Esteem quotes by Lisa Locke
#119. If we lack either self-awareness or confidence in who we are, we run the risk of allowing others to define who we are or who we should be. #Quote by Lisa Locke
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#120. I am light. I am not invisible when I look in the mirror - I am my own light that will shine, shine, and shine. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#122. Positive thoughts revive the spirit, restore the soul and make the body healthy. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Esteem quotes by Kenny Troutt
#123. That kid who lives in the projects, he has a self-esteem problem - everybody looks down on him. He may be a good kid, but other parents don't want their kids to be with them because percentages say they could be bad. I went through a lot of that. #Quote by Kenny Troutt
Self Esteem quotes by Susan Juby
#124. I want to ask someone the truth, I think truth is what has been missing in my life. Well, it's one of the things that has been missing, along with a sense of purpose and positive self-esteem. #Quote by Susan Juby
Self Esteem quotes by Ellen Muth
#125. It was something she didn't want me to do because she thought the rejection would ruin my self-esteem. My father was, like, 'If she wants to try it, let her try it.' #Quote by Ellen Muth

Self Esteem quotes by Carol S. Dweck
#128. Another way people with the fixed mindset try to repair their self-esteem after a failure is by assigning blame or making excuses. #Quote by Carol S. Dweck
Self Esteem quotes by Nenia Campbell
#129. If a woman defined herself solely by the man she was with - and vice versa - the world would be a very shallow and insipid place, indeed. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Self Esteem quotes by P. M. Forni
#130. Bragging is often merely a ladder we build for ourselves out of words when we are afraid we are not tall enough in the eyes of the world. It is an unwitting confession to low self-esteem. #Quote by P. M. Forni
Self Esteem quotes by Bruce Lee
#131. Action is a high road to self-confidence and esteem. Where it is open, all energies flow toward it. It comes readily to most people, and its rewards are tangible. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Self Esteem quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#133. All positive interactions with other human beings involve, to some degree, the experience of visibility
that is, the experience of being seen and understood. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Self Esteem quotes by J. Lynn
#134. One of the things you never really see in a romance book is a woman who has self-esteem issues. I mean, I'm sure they're out there, but they're few and far between. Like they can have eating disorders, post-traumatic stress from sexual assault or mental abuse. They can be sold into sex trafficking and they can carry epic amounts of grief. We have female characters who have suffered every loss imaginable and ones who are scarred physically and mentality, but where in the hell are the average women? Ones who look in the mirror and cringe a little? Like, why are all those others acceptable to women, but reading or knowing another woman who has a low self-esteem is, like, worse than all that drama llama? #Quote by J. Lynn
Self Esteem quotes by Derric Yuh Ndim
#135. All pain, pleasure and self-limitation either originate in the
conscious mind or is accepted uncritically from an outside source. #Quote by Derric Yuh Ndim
Self Esteem quotes by Stanley Greenspan
#136. Self-esteem is an inner feeling: Sometimes it corresponds with outer reality, and sometimes it doesn't. #Quote by Stanley Greenspan
Self Esteem quotes by Betsy Salkind
#137. Despite my interest in genetics, I never felt a particular attachment to my own genes. Some might consider this low self esteem; I prefer to think of it as egalitarianism. I oppose breeding, in animals and humans. If you're going to get a pet, take the five-year-old at the shelter, not the purebred from the puppymill. #Quote by Betsy Salkind
Self Esteem quotes by Rachel Wolchin
#138. The moment you feel like you need to prove yourself, is the moment you need to be silent and walk away. #Quote by Rachel Wolchin
Self Esteem quotes by A.S. King
#139. Your Cat Has More Self Esteem Than I Do
There are no billboards for cats
advertising feline plastic surgery
feline acne gels
feline gastric bands
feline face-lifts.
There are no commercials about
feline makeup
feline sex toys
feline fashion.
There are porn movies with cats,
but no cats watch them. #Quote by A.S. King
Self Esteem quotes by Susan C. Young
#141. Set goals to create a clear sense of purpose and direction. #Quote by Susan C. Young
Self Esteem quotes by David Sedaris
#142. Now it seems cruel, abusive even, but this all happened before the invention of self-esteem, which, frankly, I think is a little overrated. #Quote by David Sedaris
Self Esteem quotes by Jordan Castillo Price
#143. Self-esteem. That's one of those catch-all terms that means nothing at all, but the mere mention of it leaves all the socially conscious liberal types nodding sagely and scratching their chins. #Quote by Jordan Castillo Price
Self Esteem quotes by Diriye Osman
#144. I wear makeup and I don dramatic attire because I like control. I'm not interested in controlling others but I'm invested in strict self-governance. This is why I don't do many face-to-face interviews. I don't like being caught off-guard. It all goes back to that attempt to create order amidst disorder. One of the most frightening things about losing your mind is that you feel like your body, your brain, every part of your essence is being invaded. There is such a palpable helplessness to that narrative and I hate the sense of victimhood that it implies. Certainly, this is how I felt during my moments of psychological disquiet. I felt like my personhood was under attack. Performativity is important to me because I'm the teller of my own stories. I have been performing these multiple roles for so long that they have bled into my identity. I have become the man that I always wanted to be. #Quote by Diriye Osman
Self Esteem quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#145. You have been "self-pitying" for long years now and things don't seem to improve. Just try a few days of good self-esteeming" and you'll see things taking a better shape! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Self Esteem quotes by Kelly Martin
#146. Your self-worth and self-esteem cannot be changed by doing positive affirmations. If that were the case many people would be super confident and are not. It may appear to work for some, but only because they have already faced the hurts inside that have caused low self-worth and low self-esteem, and are ready to feel differently.

Acknowledging the pain and the suffering that take place inside you, and allowing the feelings, will take time, but this new way of handling these feelings will change the way you relate to you and to the outside world. #Quote by Kelly Martin
Self Esteem quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#147. We're miserable because we think that we are mere individuals, alone with our fears and flaws and resentment and mortality. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Self Esteem quotes by Susan Faludi
#148. Self-esteem is the basis for feminism because self-esteem is based on defining yourself and believing in that definition. Self-esteem is regarding yourself as a grown-up. #Quote by Susan Faludi
Self Esteem quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#149. People will ask you the question 'how is life treating you?' But my question is 'how are you treating life?' On that your happiness rests #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Self Esteem quotes by Deborah Day
#150. Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy. #Quote by Deborah Day

Self Esteem quotes by Osho
#152. Find ecstasy within yourself. It is not out there. It is in your innermost flowering. The one you are looking for is you. #Quote by Osho
Self Esteem quotes by Rollo May
#153. Deeds of violence in our society are performed largely by those trying to establish their self-esteem, to defend their self-image, and to demonstrate that they, too, are significant. #Quote by Rollo May
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#154. I AM MAKING THE DECISION TO MAKE THE BEST OUT OF EVERYTHING AND EVERY SITUATION. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Mia Hamm
#155. Sports can do so much. They've given me a framework: meeting new people, confidence, self-esteem, discipline, motivation. All these things I learned, whether I knew I was learning them or not, through sports. #Quote by Mia Hamm
Self Esteem quotes by Geena Davis
#156. When I was a model, actually, for a little while, my friend that I worked with a lot, she had horrible self-esteem too. We decided that the exact moment when we actually thought we were attractive, we wouldn't be any more. We would just, like, miss it. #Quote by Geena Davis
Self Esteem quotes by Steve Hogarth
#157. We must all guard against the human weakness of forming into tribes in order to lift our self-esteem. We can feel good about ourselves without having to find someone else to classify as inferior. #Quote by Steve Hogarth
Self Esteem quotes by Marvin J. Ashton
#158. Some think the only way to get even, to get attention or advantage, or to win is to bash people. This kind of behavior is never appropriate. Oftentimes character and reputation and almost always self-esteem are destroyed under the hammer of this vicious practice. #Quote by Marvin J. Ashton
Self Esteem quotes by Tim Fargo
#159. If you want to improve your self-worth, stop giving other people the calculator. #Quote by Tim Fargo
Self Esteem quotes by Ambrose Bierce

Self Esteem quotes by Dixie Carter
#161. I believe that the dissolution of a marriage comes about by the breaking down of self-esteem. #Quote by Dixie Carter
Self Esteem quotes by Caroline Myss
#162. Intuitive guidance means having the self-esteem to recognize that the discomfort or confusion that a person feels is actually directing him to take charge of his life and make choices that will break him out of stagnation or misery. And, while we measure our own success in terms of our personal comfort and security, the universe measures our success by how much we have learned. #Quote by Caroline Myss
Self Esteem quotes by Louise Hart
#163. Self-esteem creates natural highs. Knowing that you're lovable helps you to love more. Knowing that you're important helps you to make a difference to to others. Knowing that you are capable empowers you to create more. Knowing that you're valuable and that you have a special place in the universe is a serene spiritual joy in itself. #Quote by Louise Hart
Self Esteem quotes by Irene S. Levine
#164. Women with low self-esteem or those who are depressed, however, tend to focus exclusively on their shortcomings and are bitter about what they perceive as the advantages or good fortune of others. Taken to an extreme, such an individual tends to be self-involved, hostile, and cutting. It's natural to feel envy occasionally, but if this is a persistent pattern, it can signal a toxic friendship. #Quote by Irene S. Levine
Self Esteem quotes by Nancy Madore
#165. Feminism will be just as oppressive to women as the media if it compels us to change who we are. The ends will not justify the means. It is like a corset that, although originally intended to make us feel good, about ourselves, has been pulled so tight that we are not left with enough room to breathe. Feminism often seems to be looking down its nose at us these days, as it militantly tells us how to behave- focusing on appearances according to a male dominated society. Have they forgotten that it is the societal viewpoint which needs to be changed? Somewhere along the line this movement got off track.


After all, we are constantly being told how to look, how to age, how to eat, how to act. Can't we at least think what we want? #Quote by Nancy Madore
Self Esteem quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#166. The most stable, and therefore, the most healthy self-esteem is based on deserved respect from others rather than on external fame or celebrity and unwarranted adulation. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Self Esteem quotes by Larry Luxenberg
#167. After more than two thousand miles on the [Appalachian] trail, you can expect to undergo some personality changes. A heightened affinity for nature infiltrates your life. Greater inner peace. Enhanced self-esteem. A quiet confidence that if I could do that, I can do and should do whatever I really want to do. More appreciation for what you have and less desire to acquire what you don't. A childlike zest for living life to the fullest. A refusal to be embarrassed about having fun. A renewed faith in the essential goodness of humankind. And a determination to repay others for the many kindnesses you have received. #Quote by Larry Luxenberg
Self Esteem quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#168. The idea of original sin
of guilt with no possibility of innocence, no freedom of choice, no alternatives
inherently militates against self-esteem. The very notion of guilt without volition or responsibility is an assault on reason as well as on morality. Sin is not original, it is originated
like virtue. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Self Esteem quotes by Diane Loomans
#169. If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging. #Quote by Diane Loomans
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#170. I am exactly where I need to be - and that is in a better place mentally and physically. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Esteem quotes by Carl Sagan
#171. Whenever our ethnic or national prejudices are aroused, in times of scarcity, during challenges to national self esteem or nerve, when we agonize about our diminished cosmic place and purpose, or when fanaticism is bubbling up around us - then, habits of thought familiar from ages past reach for the controls. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Self Esteem quotes by Elise Ballard
#172. and many people are ego-defensive, meaning they can't admit when they've done something wrong because it makes them feel bad about themselves. So I thought instead of emphasizing self-esteem, #Quote by Elise Ballard
Self Esteem quotes by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
#173. Marriage is never static. There are peaks and troughs, cycles. It is easy to forget that this shifting landscape is really only ever a reflection of the self. Our capacity for attachment determines the kind of mate we attract, and it is through this mate that we are forever transformed – marriage as alchemy, but also as a mirror. #Quote by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
Self Esteem quotes by Drew Chadwick
#174. That's like the fourth time I've been called a women in this past hour. It's really starting to boost my self-esteem. #Quote by Drew Chadwick
Self Esteem quotes by Blaise Pascal
#175. The true religion would have to teach greatness and wretchedness, inspire self-esteem and self-contempt, love and hate. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Self Esteem quotes by V. Theia
#176. Just let everyone know not to give her a hard time."
"Fine, you miserable shit, but if she gives us a hard time there's nothing I can do."
As if anyone would dare go against my word.
They know the consequences of that.
I'm not a bully.
I never take my fists to anyone - never play mean pranks, that shit is for turds with no self-esteem, who need to feel like a man in any way they can. But if I issue a demand, then I expect it to be followed.
And Delaney Sloan is now hands off to everyone.
Excluding me.
I want my dirty hands all over her. #Quote by V. Theia
Self Esteem quotes by Olivia Goldsmith
#177. As long as you believe in yourself and your own vision, you have something. When you give up that, you are personally bankrupt. #Quote by Olivia Goldsmith
Self Esteem quotes by Ayn Rand
#178. Do not hide behind such superficialities as whether you should or should not give a dime to a beggar. That is not the issue. The issue is whether you do or do not have the right to exist without giving him that dime. The issue is whether you must keep buying your life, dime by dime, from any beggar who might choose to approach you. The issue is whether the need of others is the first mortgage on your life and the moral purpose of your existence. The issue is whether man is to be regarded as a sacrificial animal. Any man of self-esteem will answer: "No." Altruism says: "Yes. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Self Esteem quotes by Tadahiko Nagao
#179. The first step toward being loved is learning to love what you see when you look in the mirror. #Quote by Tadahiko Nagao
Self Esteem quotes by Bobbi Brown
#181. When we feel that all eyes are upon on us, it is often difficult

Self Esteem quotes by Dee Waldeck
#183. We cannot be of any good to other people unless we are first good to ourselves. #Quote by Dee Waldeck
Self Esteem quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#184. The teacher not only shapes the expectations and ambitions of her pupils, but she also influences their attitudes toward their future and themselves. If she is unskilled, she leaves scars on the lives of youth, cuts deeply into their self-esteem, and distorts their image of themselves as human beings. But if she loves her students and has high expectations of them, their self-confidence will grow, their capabilities will develop, and their future will be assured. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Self Esteem quotes by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera
#185. What I mean is that modern women like you are all, to a greater or lesser extend, hard...It's the yearning. Plainly and simply, it's the yearning."

Yearning? For what? {Miss Prim]

The yearning you all display to prove your worth, to show that you know this and that, to ensure that you can have it all. The yearning to succeed and, even more, the yearning not to fail; the yearning not to be seen as inferior, but instead even as superior, simply for being exactly what you believe you are, or rather what you've been made to believe you are. The inexplicable yearning for the world to give you credit simply for being women. {Lulu Thiberville] #Quote by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera
Self Esteem quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#186. Only make decisions that support your self-image, self-esteem, and self-worth. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey

Self Esteem quotes by Sherry Argov
#189. It's that a bit of irreverence is necessary to have any self-esteem at all. Not irreverence for people, but rather, for what other people think. #Quote by Sherry Argov
Self Esteem quotes by Karen Salmansohn
#190. Altruism raises your mood because it raises your self-esteem, which increases happiness. Plus, giving to others gets you outside of yourself and distracts you from your problems. #Quote by Karen Salmansohn
Self Esteem quotes by Joe Tye
#191. Fear of success is far more dangerous than fear of failure, because the subconscious mind works to prevent that which it fears. People may fear success because of low self-esteem and feeling of not deserving it; because it will increase what others expect of them. Fear of success shows up as anxiety, indecision, avoidance, procrastination or acceptance of mediocrity. #Quote by Joe Tye
Self Esteem quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#192. The only person who acts sensibly is my tailor. He takes my measure anew every time he sees me. Everyone else goes by their old measurements. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Self Esteem quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#193. All the external adoration, respect and adulation in the word, can't drown out the internal voices that tell us, we are not good enough and unworthy of; happiness, love and an abundant life. When we need others to tell us were amazing, worthy and lovable, in order to feel good about ourselves, it is never enough. It goes into the bottomless pit where our inherent self-worth should be. It may feel like we are reaching out to receive love, but in actuality, we are seeking external noise to help drown out our negative core beliefs.
Love blossoms from the inside out. That is why it is so important to do the work necessary to heal our emotional wounds, to love ourselves and stand strong in who we are. Only then, are we truly free to give and receive love, unconditionally and in abundance. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Self Esteem quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson

Self Esteem quotes by Tosha Michelle
#198. Edges
I am a child throwing rocks into the stream.
Challenging the rushing water.
Raising my fist and daring fate to do it worst.
I am a dancer in the waves of the ocean.
Swaying in time with the tide.
Pirouetting, the current my only friend.
I am the sun, rising across the canyon
Ascending, and shinning down.
Giving the illusion of perception and motion.
I am thoughts like a rolling river.
Water cascading over the rocks of my soul.
Shaping, forming, conforming.
I am the peace of the rain forest.
Basking in solitude
Tranquil, serene, transfixing angles.
Reflecting from within.
Dripping and dropping. Shaking it off.
I am the dust of the galaxy.
Yearning to know itself.
I am the wind.
Wandering. Searching.
A storm brewing from within. #Quote by Tosha Michelle
Self Esteem quotes by Michele Woolley
#199. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked (Luke 6:35). #Quote by Michele Woolley

Self Esteem quotes by John Howard Griffin
#201. We were Negroes and our concern was the white man and how to get along with him; how to hold our own and raise ourselves in his esteem without for one moment letting him think he had any God-given rights that we did not also have. #Quote by John Howard Griffin
Self Esteem quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#202. The heights of the spirit can only be climbed by passing through the portals of humility. You can only acquire right knowledge when you have learnt to esteem it. Man has certainly the right to turn his eyes to the light, but he must first acquire this right. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Self Esteem quotes by Taylor Caldwell
#203. We all feel inadequate very often. It's only when it gets chronic that it is disturbing to one's emotions and can get out of hand and make you pretty damn miserable. #Quote by Taylor Caldwell
Self Esteem quotes by Marie-Helene Bertino
#204. Thinking about him requires so little effort that she can do it while performing mindless activities. Soaping the dishes, replaiting Clare Kelley's hair, drying the dishes. The part of her brain that plays his ongoing reel is unconnected to the neurons and synapses that control things like conscious thought and logic. Ben turning to her at a party. Ben turning to her. Ben turning. What human being deserves to be the nucleus of such high esteem? Certainly not Benjamin, middle name Hal, last name Allen. Five-nine in boots. Who has a car that doesn't start on cold mornings, an unfinished screenplay, a law degree he doesn't use, a romantic's tendency to save movie stubs, and a mannered, unsmiling wife. #Quote by Marie-Helene Bertino
Self Esteem quotes by Laozi

Self Esteem quotes by Sophia Fermor
#207. I wou'd therefore exhort all my sex (...) to betake themselves to the improvement of their minds (...) and (...) shew our selves worthy something from them, as much above their bare esteem, as they conceit themselves above us. In a word, let us shew them, by what little we do without aid of education, the much we might do if they did us justice; that we may force a blush from them, if possible, and compel them to confess their own baseness to us, and that the worst of us deserve much better treatment than the best of us receive. #Quote by Sophia Fermor
Self Esteem quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#208. Women internalize the feminine wound or feminine inferiority so deeply, there's little or no female authority and esteem to fall back on. So they seek it by adopting and pleasing patriarchal standards. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Self Esteem quotes by Anonymous
#209. Isaiah 53 1Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? 2For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no aform or bcomeliness; And when we see Him, There is no cbeauty that we should desire Him. 3 He is despised and drejected by men, A Man of esorrows and acquainted with fgrief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. #Quote by Anonymous
Self Esteem quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#210. Men should not labor foolishly like brutes, but the brain and the body should always, or as much as possible, work and rest together, and then the work will be of such a kind that when the body is hungry the brain will be hungry also, and the same food will suffice for both; otherwise the food which repairs the waste energy of the overwrought body will oppress the sedentary brain, and the degenerate scholar will come to esteem all food vulgar, and all getting a living drudgery. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Self Esteem quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#211. Ability wins us the esteem of the true men; luck, that of the people. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Self Esteem quotes by Elie Metchnikoff
#212. In the ancient world and, above all, among the Greeks, human nature was held in high esteem. #Quote by Elie Metchnikoff
Self Esteem quotes by Richard Sibbes
#213. Does God take care of beasts, and not of his more noble creature? And therefore we ought to judge charitably of the complaints of God's people which are wrung from them in such cases. Job had the esteem with God of a patient man, notwithstanding those passionate complaints. #Quote by Richard Sibbes
Self Esteem quotes by Dante Alighieri
#214. O how far remov'd, Predestination! is thy foot from such As see not the First Cause entire: and ye, O mortal men! be wary how ye judge: For we, who see the Maker, know not yet The number of the chosen; and esteem Such scantiness of knowledge our delight: For all good is, in that primal good, Concentrate; and God's will and ours are one. #Quote by Dante Alighieri
Self Esteem quotes by John Milton
#215. God sure esteems the growth and completing of one virtuous person, more that the restraint of ten vicious. #Quote by John Milton

#216. PROJECTILE, n. The final arbiter in international disputes. With the growth of prudence in military affairs the projectile came more and more into favor, and is now held in high esteem by the most courageous. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Self Esteem quotes by Rick Joyner
#217. Knowing His will is more valuable than all the treasures we could ever have, and we must always esteem knowing His will as the true treasure, and therefore make it the primary thing that we seek. #Quote by Rick Joyner
Self Esteem quotes by Adam Clarke
#218. I am an old man, and I here declare that I never knew them to be productive of any good in the worship of God, and have reason to believe that they are productive of much evil. Music as a science I esteem and admire, but instrumental music in the house of God I abominate and abhor. This is the abuse of music, and I here register my protest against all such corruption of the worship of the author of Christianity. #Quote by Adam Clarke
Self Esteem quotes by Kevin E. Phillips

#221. I grew up in a home environment where I wasn't getting esteem for anything I did. #Quote by Ben Affleck
Self Esteem quotes by Jose Rizal
#222. A God who chastises our lack of faith, our vices, the little esteem in which we hold dignity and the civic virtues. We tolerate vice, we make ourselves its accomplices, at times we applaud it, and it is just, very just that we suffer the consequences, that our children suffer them. It is the God of liberty ... who obliges us to love it, by making the yoke heavy for us - a God of mercy, of equity, who while He chastises us betters us and only grants prosperity to him who has merited it through his efforts. The school of suffering tempers, the arena of combat strengthens the soul. #Quote by Jose Rizal
Self Esteem quotes by David Lodge
#223. As is perhaps obvious, Morris Zapp had no great esteem for his fellow-labourers in the vineyards of literature. They seemed to him vague, fickle, irresponsible creatures, who wallowed in relativism like hippopotami in mud, with their nostrils barely protruding into the air of common-sense. They happily tolerated the existence of opinions contrary to their own - they even, for God's sake, sometimes changed their minds. Their pathetic attempts at profundity were qualified out of existence and largely interrogative in mode. They liked to begin a paper with some formula like, 'I want to raise some questions about so-and-so', and seemed to think they had done their intellectual duty by merely raising them. This manoeuvre drove Morris Zapp insane. Any damn fool, he maintained, could think of questions; it was answers that separated the men from the boys. #Quote by David Lodge
Self Esteem quotes by Luc De Clapiers
#224. When we feel that we lack whatever is needed to secure someone else's esteem, we are very close to hating him #Quote by Luc De Clapiers
Self Esteem quotes by Thomas Boston
#225. What an honourable thing is it to be fishers of men! How great an honour shouldst thou esteem it, to be a catcher of souls! We are workers together with God, says the apostle. If God has ever so honoured thee, O that thou knewest it, that thou mightst bless his holy name, that ever made such a poor fool as thee to be a co-worker with him. God has owned thee to do good to those who were before caught. O my soul, bless thou the Lord. Lord, what am I, or what is my father's house, that thou hast brought me to this? #Quote by Thomas Boston
Self Esteem quotes by Samuel Johnson
#226. Parents and children seldom act in concert:
each child endeavors to appropriate
the esteem or fondness of the parents,
and the parents, with yet less temptation,
betray each other to their children. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Self Esteem quotes by William Butler Yeats
#227. Everything that man esteems Endures a moment or a day. #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Self Esteem quotes by Edward Gibbon
#228. Justice, humanity, or political wisdom, are qualities they are too little acquainted with in themselves, to appreciate them in others. Valor will acquire their esteem, and liberality will purchase their suffrage; but the first of these merits is often lodged in the most savage breasts; the latter can only exert itself at the expense of the public; and both may be turned against the possessor of the throne, by the ambition of a daring rival. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Self Esteem quotes by John Jortin
#229. A man hath riches. Whence came they, and whither go they? for this is the way to form a judgment of the esteem which they and their possessor deserve. If they have been acquired by fraud or violence, if they make him proud and vain, if they minister to luxury and intemperance, if they are avariciously hoarded up and applied to no proper use, the possessor becomes odious and contemptible. #Quote by John Jortin
Self Esteem quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#230. And when I look around the apartment where I now am, - when I see Charlotte's apparel lying before me, and Albert's writings, and all those articles of furniture which are so familiar to me, even to the very inkstand which I am using, - when I think what I am to this family - everything. My friends esteem me; I often contribute to their happiness, and my heart seems as if it could not beat without them; and yet - if I were to die, if I were to be summoned from the midst of this circle, would they feel - or how long would they feel - the void which my loss would make in their existence? How long! Yes, such is the frailty of man, that even there, where he has the greatest consciousness of his own being, where he makes the strongest and most forcible impression, even in the memory, in the heart of his beloved, there also he must perish, - vanish, - and that quickly.

I could tear open my bosom with vexation to think how little we are capable of influencing the feelings of each other. No one can communicate to me those sensations of love, joy, rapture, and delight which I do not naturally possess; and though my heart may glow with the most lively affection, I cannot make the happiness of one in whom the same warmth is not inherent.

Sometimes I don't understand how another can love her, is allowed to love her, since I love her so completely myself, so intensely, so fully, grasp nothing, know nothing, have nothing but her!

I possess so much, but my l #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Self Esteem quotes by John Lancaster Spalding
#231. As children must have the hooping cough, the college youth must pass through the stage of conceit in which he holds in slight esteem the wisdom of the best. #Quote by John Lancaster Spalding
Self Esteem quotes by David Foster Wallace
#232. somebody had taken an old disk of McCartney and the Wings - as in the historical Beatles's McCartney - taken and run it through a Kurtzweil remixer and removed every track on the songs except the tracks of poor old Mrs. Linda McCartney singing backup and playing tambourine.
...

Poor old Mrs. Linda McCartney just fucking could not sing, and having her shaky off-key little voice flushed from the cover of the whole slick multitrack corporate sound and pumped up to solo was to Gately unspeakably depressing - her voice sounding so lost, trying to hide and bury itself inside the pro backups' voices; Gately imagined Mrs. Linda McCartney - in his Staff room's wall's picture a kind of craggy-face blonde - imagined her standing there lost in the sea of her husband's pro noise, feeling low esteem and whispering off-key, not knowing quite when to shake her tambourine: C's depressing CD was past cruel, it was somehow sadistic-seeming, like drilling a peephole in the wall of a handicapped bathroom. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Self Esteem quotes by Hedley Beare
#233. The intuitive, the expressive, the un-measurable, the intensely personal have never found a satisfactory place in the curriculum, in assessment, in the publics esteem. #Quote by Hedley Beare
Self Esteem quotes by Pope Pius II
#234. Common men should esteem learning as silver, noble men prize it as gold, and princes as jewels. #Quote by Pope Pius II
Self Esteem quotes by Jonathan Swift
#235. The author of these Travels, Mr. Lemuel Gulliver, is my ancient and intimate friend; there is likewise some relation between us on the mother's side. About three years ago, Mr. Gulliver growing weary of the concourse of curious people coming to him at his house in Redriff, made a small purchase of land, with a convenient house, near Newark, in Nottinghamshire, his native country; where he now lives retired, yet in good esteem among his neighbours. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Self Esteem quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#236. Disciples of Jesus Christ understand that compared to eternity, our existence in this mortal sphere is only "a small moment" in space and time. They know that a person's true value has little to do with what the world holds in high esteem. They know you could pile up the accumulated currency of the entire world and it could not buy a loaf of bread in the economy of heaven. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Self Esteem quotes by Gabor Mate
#237. To expect an addict to give up her drug is like asking the average person to imagine living without all her social skills, support networks, emotional stability and sense of physical and psychological comfort. Those are the qualities that, in their illusory and evanescent way, drugs give the addict. People like Serena and Celia and the others whose portraits have appeared in this book perceive their drugs as their "rock and salvation."

Thus, for all the valid reasons we have for wanting the addict to "just say no," we first need to offer her something to which she can say "yes." We must provide an island of relief. We have to demonstrate that esteem, acceptance, love and humane interaction are realities in this world, contrary to what she, the addict, has learned all her life. It is impossible to create that island for people unless they can feel secure that their substance dependency will be satisfied as long as they need it. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Self Esteem quotes by Susan Boyle
#238. Unmarried women in their forties, with false teeth and tousled hair, aren't usually held in the highest esteem by our society. The feeling seemed to be that if I could be a success then anyone could! #Quote by Susan Boyle
Self Esteem quotes by Jane Austen
#239. She certainly did not hate him. No; hatred had vanished long ago, and she had almost as long been ashamed of ever feeling a dislike against him, that could be so called. The respect created by the conviction of his valuable qualities, though at first unwillingly admitted, had for some time ceased to be repugnant to her feelings; and it was now heightened into somewhat of a friendlier nature, by the testimony so highly in his favour, and bringing forward his disposition in so amiable a light, which yesterday had produced. But above all, above respect and esteem, there was a motive within her of good will which could not be overlooked. It was gratitude.--Gratitude not merely for having once loved her, but for loving her still well enough, to forgive all the petulance and acrimony of her manner in rejecting him, and all the unjust accusations accompanying her rejection. He who, she had been persuaded, would avoid her as his greatest enemy, seemed, on this accidental meeting, most eager to preserve the acquaintance, and without any indelicate display of regard, or any peculiarity of manner, where their two selves only were concerned, was soliciting the good opinion of her friends, and bent on making her known to his sister. Such a change in a man of so much pride, excited not only astonishment but gratitude--for to love, ardent love, it must be attributed; and as such its impression on her was of a sort to be encouraged, as by no means unpleasing, though it could not exactly be d #Quote by Jane Austen
Self Esteem quotes by William Shakespeare
#240. That, when they shall be opened, black Macbeth Will seem as pure as snow, and the poor state (55) Esteem him as a lamb, being compared With my confineless harms. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Self Esteem quotes by Edward Young
#241. In an active life is sown the seed of wisdom ... And age, if it has not esteem, has nothing. #Quote by Edward Young
Self Esteem quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#242. We shall never see much change for the better in our churches in general till the prayer meeting occupies a higher place in the esteem of Christians. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Self Esteem quotes by Ann Rinaldi
#243. You are a man without a heart, Dr. Leddell.
And you, Mary Cooper, are a meddler. A woman can be forgiven for many transgressions but not that.
I have been called worse. And by people I hold in more esteem than you.
Ha! I pity the poor man unfortunate enough to marry you someday. He writes his own ticket to hell.
If he does, then I'll make that hell as pleasant a place for him as I know how. But I won't deceive him and tell him it's heaven, then stoke the fires behind his back and cover it all with the scent of lilacs. #Quote by Ann Rinaldi
Self Esteem quotes by B.C. Forbes
#244. The way to make a true friend is to be one. Friendship implies loyalty, esteem, cordiality, sympathy, affection, readiness to aid, to help, to stick, to fight for, if need be ... Radiate friendship and it will return sevenfold. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Self Esteem quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#245. We may well value our minds and esteem our brainpower. But let us respect our feet as well. They might be down-to-earth for sure, but do allow us to go forward and steam ahead in life. On top, they can kick out anyone disrespectful and mind-numbing. ("If he doesn't play ball") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Self Esteem quotes by Thomas Huxley
#246. Each such answer to the great question, invariably asserted by the followers of its propounder, if not by himself, to be complete and final, remains in high authority and esteem, it may be for one century, or it may be for twenty: but, as invariably, Time proves each reply to have been a mere approximation to the truth tolerable chiefly on account of the ignorance of those by whom it was accepted, and wholly intolerable when tested by the larger knowledge of their successors. #Quote by Thomas Huxley
