Self quotes by Rick Warren
#1. The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousands of years. That's because we typically begin at the wrong starting point - ourselves. We ask self-centered questions like What do I want to be? What should I do with my life? What are my goals, my ambitions, my dreams for my future? But focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life's purpose. #Quote by Rick Warren
Self quotes by Janet Crain
#2. Each store will fulfil some of your needs, but no individual store can meet all of your needs. Learning how to set realistic expectations now and in future relationships requires you to examine each of the existing stores to see what they can offer. #Quote by Janet Crain
Self quotes by Merlin Olsen
#3. Football linemen are motivated by a more complicated, self- determining series of factors than the simple fear of humiliation in the public gaze, which is the emotion that galvanizes the backs and receivers. #Quote by Merlin Olsen
Self quotes by Tali Sharot
#4. A further, albeit more complex, possibility is that our conscious selves might suffer from characteristic uncertainty about our true values, and gather information about them from choices we make (the Jamesian: "How do I know what I like until I see what I pick"). #Quote by Tali Sharot
Self quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#5. Remaining quiet is what is called wisdom-insight. To remain quiet is to resolve the mind in the Self. Telepathy, knowing past, present and future happenings and clairvoyance do not constitute wisdom-insight. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Self quotes by Lester Levenson
#6. Truth can be found by a process of eliminating wrong thoughts, which are thoughts of limitation. When all thoughts of limitation are eliminated, what remains is our natural, unlimited, Self. #Quote by Lester Levenson
Self quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#7. Knowing the Self, God is known. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Self quotes by Russell Simmons
#8. What holds most people back isn't the quality of their ideas, but their lack of faith in themselves. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Self quotes by George Lakoff
#9. Mature citizens have to sink or swim by themselves. Citizens are on their own and have to prove their responsibility and self-reliance. They have become the leaders in their own family units (or local communities). They have to, and are competent to, make their own decisions. They have to protect themselves and their families (or communities). They know what is good for them better than their government, which is distant from them. A good government does not meddle or interfere in their lives. Any governmental meddling or interfering is strongly resented. Here #Quote by George Lakoff
Self quotes by Miguel De Cervantes
#10. He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes
Self quotes by Richie Norton
#11. Follow your passion and learn how to make money at it. Or don't follow your passion and learn to make money at that. They are the same. It's a choice. #Quote by Richie Norton
Self quotes by Josh Hatcher
#12. What we need to do is treat some of our thoughts like door to door salesmen. If someone comes to your door and asks if he can come inside and throw some dirt on your floor to demonstrate his vaccuum cleaner - you would probably tell him "No thanks! See you later!" And yet - if a friend stopped by with a meatloaf and wanted to visit - we'd say "Come on in!" We need to stop being PASSIVE about what thoughts can take residence in our head. #Quote by Josh Hatcher
Self quotes by Project Itoh
#13. The instant the old folks had entered their codes and the Harmony program had begun to sing, suicide disappeared from human society. Nearly all battles ceased. The individual was no longer a unit. The entire social system was the unit. By losing its sense of self and self-awareness, society had been freed from the pain it suffered because its systems had relied on imperfect humans, arriving for the first time at a perfect bliss. I am a part of the system, as you are part of the system. No one felt any pain about that any longer. There was no "me" to feel pain. I had been replaced by a single... #Quote by Project Itoh
Self quotes by Krisi Keley
#14. How many of us are there?" he demanded in a less than amused tone.
"Legions, surely, don't you think it must be so?"
"How can you joke about even this?" he asked, anger evident in his voice. A rarity that he expressed it, or any other emotion, for that matter. Of course, that didn't mean the emotions weren't there, and I'd experienced every one he'd refused to show.
"Don't knock what you haven't tried, Michel. Trust me when I say my regular routine of self-amusement is a much better prophylactic against insanity than your grueling regimen of nightly self-flogging. #Quote by Krisi Keley
Self quotes by Jarod Kintz
#15. I feel self-conscious calling my cat fat in front of a fat person, considering I'm skinny and inconsiderate. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Self quotes by Kelly Bingham
#16. Life goes on, and deadlines arrive, even when it seem the world should stop out of respect for a shattered self-esteem. #Quote by Kelly Bingham
Self quotes by Philip K. Dick
#17. Despair like that, about total reality, is self-perpetuating. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Self quotes by John Baxter
#18. Our capacity for self-delusion appears almost infinite. #Quote by John Baxter
Self quotes by Connor Franta
#19. i am broken up after being broken up with #Quote by Connor Franta
Self quotes by E'yen A. Gardner
#20. Understanding your importance does not minimize those around you, it brings fulfillment to everyone. #Quote by E'yen A. Gardner
Self quotes by Mark F. LaMoure
#21. Find mentors to help you out. Always be on the lookout for friendly allies, willing to help and support you. Be willing to help others out too, when asked. What goes around, comes around. #Quote by Mark F. LaMoure
Self quotes by Brian Tracy
#22. You'll always get out of life what you put in-and you control what you
put in. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Self quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#23. It is only in proportion as the Christian manifests the fruit of a genuine conversion that he is entitled to regard himself and be regarded by others as one of the called and elect of God. It is just in proportion as we add to our faith the other Christian graces that we have solid ground on which to rest in the assurance we belong to the family of Christ. It is not those who are governed by self-will, but "as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God" (Rom. 8:14). #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Self quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#24. The shell game that we play ... is technically called 'renormalization'. But no matter how clever the word, it is still what I would call a dippy process! Having to resort to such hocus-pocus has prevented us from proving that the theory of quantum electrodynamics is mathematically self-consistent. It's surprising that the theory still hasn't been proved self-consistent one way or the other by now; I suspect that renormalization is not mathematically legitimate. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Self quotes by Dean Koontz
#25. The line between moral behavior and narcissistic self-righteousness is thin and difficult to discern. The man who stands before a crowd and proclaims his intention to save the seas is convinced that he is superior to a man who merely picks up his own and other people's litter on the beach, when in fact the latter is in some small way sure to make the world a better place, while the former is likely to be a monster of vanity whose crusade will lead to unintended destruction. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Self quotes by Ed Mayo
#26. We all need a story. It just turns out that the story we have been told for years - that people are naturally and primarily competitive and self-interested and that life is best shaped around that bleak fact - is bunkum #Quote by Ed Mayo
Self quotes by Neel Burton
#27. Just as Prometheus delivered stolen fire to man, so Eve, and the serpent, delivered man into self-consciousness, setting him up, were it not for his short lifespan, as rival to God. At the same time, man's self-consciousness removed him from nature into a life of toil, doubt, fear, guilt, shame, blame, enmity, loneliness, and frailty - and the product of this separation, the fruit and flower of this exile, is, of course, culture. 'God,' said the writer Victor Hugo, 'made only water, but man made wine. #Quote by Neel Burton
Self quotes by Bud Harris
#28. The journey into wholeness means we have to learn to respect the other voice that speaks within us. It means to pay attention to our emotions, thoughts, dreams and fantasies even when they're unpleasant and objectionable. #Quote by Bud Harris
Self quotes by Lisa Ann Walter
#29. Basically, in our society, you can never fix anything enough. The minute you get your head above water about one thing, they let you know that 12 other things about you suck. It's like playing 'Self-Esteem Whack-A-Mole.' #Quote by Lisa Ann Walter
Self quotes by Renae A. Sauter
#30. Being human is a portal into your divinity, #Quote by Renae A. Sauter
Self quotes by Samantha Young
#31. You should win an award or something for most compassionate student. No, wait. I mean the most self-centered dipshit award." Her #Quote by Samantha Young
Self quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#32. A man will reveal his true self, or so it seems, on the tennis court. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Self quotes by Avijeet Das
#33. One day you feel this feeling: it emanates from your soul. It is the feeling of struggle. It is the feeling of courage. It is the feeling of self-belief! It is the feeling of chasing your dreams. It is the feeling of trying harder. It is the feeling of never ever giving up! This feeling emanates from the fire burning within your soul! Never ever give up this feeling! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Self quotes by Gloria E Anzaldua
#34. Like all people, we perceive the version of reality that our culture communicates. Like others having or living in more than one culture, we get multiple, often opposing messages. The coming together of two self-consistent but habitually incomparable frames of reference causes un choque, a cultural collision. #Quote by Gloria E Anzaldua
Self quotes by Jasper Fforde
#35. Writing is a subtle art that is reached mostly by self-discovery and experimentation. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Self quotes by Thomas Troward
#36. What is our point of support? Is it in ourselves or outside us? Are we self-poised, or does our balance depend on something external? According to the actual belief in which our answer to these questions is embodied so will our lives be. In everything there are two parts, the essential and the incidental – that which is the nucleus and raison d'être of the whole thing, and that which gathers round this nucleus and takes form from it. The true knowledge always consists in distinguishing these two from each other, and error always consists in misplacing them. #Quote by Thomas Troward
Self quotes by Elmar Hussein
#37. A person who is only educated by others is an uneducated person; without self-education, you will not be able to get an education in the strict sense of the word. #Quote by Elmar Hussein
Self quotes by Friedrich Schiller
#38. To know thyself
in others self-concern;
Would'st thou know others? read thyself
and learn! #Quote by Friedrich Schiller
Self quotes by Kecia Ali
#39. The legal structure of Islamic marriage is predicated on a gender-differentiated allocation of interdependent claims, which would be thrown into chaos by a same-sex union. In the standard contractual understanding of marriage, the husband holds milk al-nikah, control of the marriage tie, and the wife has a claim to dower and the obligation of sexual exclusivity and availability. Several early jurists considered the possibility of whether these rights and duties could be reallocated – whether a woman could pay a man a dower, for example, and retain control over sex and divorce – and agreed unanimously that such a reallocation is not permitted. Not only are husbands' and wives' rights distinct, but each role is fundamentally linked to the sex/gender of the person exercising it. A woman cannot wield control of the marriage tie; a man cannot be contractually bound to sexual availability to his wife. Thus, following that logic, it would not be possible for one woman to adopt the "husband" role and the other to adopt the "wife" role in the marriage of two women. The self-contained logic of the jurisprudential framework does not permit such an outcome. #Quote by Kecia Ali
Self quotes by Malcolm De Chazal
#40. The chicken "understands" the dog, the dog can interpret the dove's cooing, the insect can fathom the lowing of the cow, and no matter how faraway the eagle may be, the cow can tell where it is. All audible animal messages are indifferently understood by all animals even though each one is monolingual at most. Could there be any more remarkable lesson in and example of understanding others without loss of personality? Most impenetrable to the thoughts of others are those who have no personal language. Most intolerant people hail from the land of self-ignorance. #Quote by Malcolm De Chazal
Self quotes by T. Scott McLeod
#41. You had to break, to be unbroken. In the brokenness, I had found, that which was unbroken. That which was perfect, and beautiful, and complete. #Quote by T. Scott McLeod
Self quotes by Mary Karr
#42. Success has affected my self-definition in that I have more money. Writers pooh-pooh that idea, but it's a huge deal. #Quote by Mary Karr
Self quotes by Deepak Chopra
#43. One of the keys to harnessing this potentially unlimited power of the mind is to expand your level of self-awareness. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Self quotes by Gene Robinson
#44. What I love about believing in a living God is that I believe God is constantly revealing God's self to us over time, and with each succeeding generation, we come a little closer to understanding the mind of God. #Quote by Gene Robinson
Self quotes by Akansh Malik
#45. To achieve something, you need to be a little selfish...!! #Quote by Akansh Malik
Self quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#46. Can I have the heart to fluster the flustered Thipps further - that's very difficult to say quickly - by appearing in a top-hat and frock-coat? I think not. Ten to one he will overlook my trousers and mistake me for the undertaker. A grey suit, I fancy, neat but not gaudy, with a hat to tone, suits my other self better. Exit the amateur of first editions; new motive introduced by solo bassoon; enter Sherlock Holmes, disguised as a walking gentleman. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Self quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#47. Selfish needs, wants, and desires needed to be obliterated. Greed, overindulgence, and gluttony had to be expunged from human behavior. The solution was in self-control, in minimalism, in sparse living conditions; one simple and a brand-new dictionary filled with words everyone would understand. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Self quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#48. Brave people believe in a higher power than themselves. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self quotes by David Mezzapelle
#49. TALENT When I was young I had a great talent For bitching and moaning, Lamenting my errors Lost in self-pity's groaning. And now as the leaves on my branches grow dark The life force within me ignited a spark, Can do it, will do it Talent - that's all there is to it! A poem by Karen Lyons Kalmenson #Quote by David Mezzapelle
Self quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#50. Whence, then, this worship of the past? The centuries are conspirators against the sanity and authority of the soul. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Self quotes by Thom Yorke
#51. My only means of self defense is to wiggle my eye and feign being a salamander. It has saved my life but once I was partially eaten by a bald eagle who thought I was a salamander. Hence, my skills. Hence. #Quote by Thom Yorke
Self quotes by Helen Fielding
#52. A woman has her needs. What good is a mother to her poor children if she's suffering from low self-esteem and sexual frustration? If you don't get laid soon, you will literally close up. More importantly, you will shrivel. And you will become bitter. #Quote by Helen Fielding
Self quotes by Norm MacDonald
#53. Note to self: no matter how bad life gets, there's always beer. #Quote by Norm MacDonald
Self quotes by Penelope Fitzgerald
#54. She had a kind heart, though that is not of much use when it comes to the matter of self-preservation. #Quote by Penelope Fitzgerald
Self quotes by Jean Giraudoux
#55. All the evil in the world is the fault of the self-styled pure in heart, a result of their eagerness to unearth secrets and expose them to the light of the sun. #Quote by Jean Giraudoux
Self quotes by Anna White
#56. Truth: last week I online shopped too much. Then I ate 2 pounds of jelly beans to feel better about that. In fact, while I was trying to read soul-nourishing things all I could think about was shopping and jellybeans. Points to the monkey mind. #Quote by Anna White
Self quotes by Benedict Cumberbatch
#57. I'm quite sensitive to people noticing me. There are times when I'm relaxed, then others when it does make me self-conscious. #Quote by Benedict Cumberbatch
Self quotes by Judith Lynne Hanna
#58. Through dance, people meet demons, ward off death, shake off sin and evil, come to terms with life crises, mediate paradoxes, resolve conflict, revitalize the past to re-create the present, enhance their self-concept and body image, attract attention, assert themselves, confront the strong, and persuade others to change their ways. #Quote by Judith Lynne Hanna
Self quotes by T.F. Hodge
#59. On a surface level, all one finds is repeated forms of shallow whispers. Having the courage to explore deeply, a wealth of buried infinite lifetimes emerge - an undeniable force. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Self quotes by Haruki Murakami
#60. He wasn't so bad when the two of us came to see you, though. He was just his usual self."

Because you were there," said Naoko. "He was always like that around you. He struggled to keep his weaknesses hidden. I'm sure he was very fond of you. He made a point of letting you see only his best side. He wasn't like that with me. He'd let his guard down. He could be really moody. One minute he'd be chattering away, and the next thing he'd be depressed. It happened all the time. He was like that from the time he was little. He did keep trying to change himself, to improve himself, though."
Naoko recrossed her legs atop the sofa.
He tried hard, but it didn't do any good, and that would make him really angry and sad. There was so much about him that was fine and beautiful, but he could never find the confidence he needed. "I've got to do that, I've got to change this," he was always thinking, right up to the end. Poor Kizuki!"

Still though," I said, "if it's true that he was always struggling to show me his best side, I'd say he succeeded. His best side was all that I could see."

Naoko smiled. "He'd be thrilled to hear you say that. You were his only friend. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Self quotes by J. Loren Norris
#61. Core values serve as a lighthouse when the fog of life seems to leave you wandering in circles; when you encounter that moment where every decision is a tough one and no choice seems to clearly be the better choice. #Quote by J. Loren Norris
Self quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#62. Seeking new sensations while violating the sacred first desecrates the self and finally destroys the sensation. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Self quotes by Bruno De Oliveira
#63. Resilience is a systematic adaptation of the oppressed self under the arbitrary imposition of the political order. Emancipation is the liberation of the self from the oppressive imposition of the political order upon the self. #Quote by Bruno De Oliveira
Self quotes by Lyna Jones
#64. Our ability to transcend betrayal is directly tied to our willingness to identify ourselves as love activists rather than victims of the Universe. #Quote by Lyna Jones
Self quotes by Samuel Smiles
#65. The cheapest of all things is kindness, its exercise requiring the least possible trouble and self-sacrifice. Win hearts, said Burleigh to Queen Elizabeth, and you have all men's hearts and purses. #Quote by Samuel Smiles
Self quotes by Gayle Forman
#66. If you stay, I'll do whatever you want. I'll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I'll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it'd be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I'd do it. I can lose you like that if I don't lose you today. I'll let you go. If you stay. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Self quotes by Milton Friedman
#67. The world runs on individuals pursuing their self interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn't construct his theory under order from a, from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn't revolutionize the automobile industry that way. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Self quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#68. Keep that in mind, and always remember that you have a choice to listen or to walk away because you are somebody special. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#69. Compassion means to suffer with, but it doesn't mean to get lost in the suffering, so that it becomes exclusively one's own. I tend to do this, to replace the person for whom I am feeling compassion with myself. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Self quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#70. In the depths of his soul Ivan Ilyich knew that he was dying ... he simply did not, he could not possibly understand it. The example of a syllogism he had studied in Kiesewetter's logic - Caius is a man, men are mortal, therefore Caius is mortal
had seemed to him all his life to be correct only in relation to Caius, but by no means himself. For the man Caius, man in general, it was perfectly correct; but he was not Caius and not man in general, he had always been quite, quite separate from all other human beings ... And Caius is indeed mortal, and it's right that he die, but for me, Vanya, Ivan Ilyich, with all my feelings and thoughts
for me it's another matter. And it cannot be that I should die. It would be too terrible.
So it felt to him. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Self quotes by Eric Hoffer
#71. The radical and the reactionary loathe the present. They see it as an aberration and a deformity. Both are ready to proceed ruthlessly and recklessly with the present, and both are hospitable to the idea of self-sacrifice. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Self quotes by Emery Lord
#72. A single yellow flag beats against the ocean wind, and the sky stretches for every mile of ocean, and then longer and farther. We're the only people as far as the eye can see, and all the world feels like a private show, screened on the endless black sky. The universe is unfurling its whole self to us, arms wide and beckoning. #Quote by Emery Lord
Self quotes by Lao-Tzu
#73. The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Self quotes by H.W. Brands
#74. Western farmers were individualists cheifly in their dreams. #Quote by H.W. Brands
Self quotes by Gardiner Spring
#75. The evidence of our acceptance in the Beloved rises in proportion to our love, to our repentance, to our humility, to our faith, to our self-denial, to our delight in duty. Other evidence than this the Bible knows not God has not given. #Quote by Gardiner Spring
Self quotes by John C. Broger
#76. Anger and bitterness are two noticeable signs of being focused on self and not trusting God's sovereignty in your life. When you believe that God causes all things to work together for good to those who belong to Him and love Him, you can respond to trials with joy instead of anger or bitterness. #Quote by John C. Broger
Self quotes by Mozella Ademiluyi
#77. Being sure-footed is also about paying attention and maintaining the right vision, intention and attitude. You will always benefit from spending time in thought and prayer about where you're headed and why it matters that you get there. #Quote by Mozella Ademiluyi
Self quotes by Alexis Karpouzos
#78. Every flower and insect, every bird, and all the creatures that live upon the land and swim within the rivers and seas, are part of the Tree of Life. You are connected to the whole of life. Whatever happens to the myriad forms of life in the world around you, has a direct affect on you'. #Quote by Alexis Karpouzos
Self quotes by Haruki Murakami
#79. Even if I had my life to live over again, I couldn't imagine not doing things the same. After all, everything - this life I was losing - was me. And I couldn't be any other self but my self. Could I? Once, #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Self quotes by Richard M. Rorty
#80. For James, disgust with American hypocrisy and self-deception was pointless unless accompanied by an effort to give America reason to be proud of itself in the future. The kind of proto-Heideggerian cultural pessimism which Adams cultivated seemed, to James, decadent and cowardly. #Quote by Richard M. Rorty
Self quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#81. So, we have an element newly prominent in American religious and political life, a new form of entitlement, a self-declared elect. What some have seen as a resurgence of Christianity, or at least a bold defense of American cultural tradition - even as another great awakening! - has brought a harshness, a bitterness, a crudeness, and a high-handedness into the public sphere that are only to be compared to the politics, or the collapse of politics, in the period before the Civil War. Its self-righteousness fuels the damnedest things - I use the word advisedly - notably the acquisition of homicidal weapons. I wonder what these supposed biblicists find in the Gospels or the Epistles that could begin to excuse any of it. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Self quotes by Michael Crichton
#82. My own sense is that the acquisition of self knowledge has been made difficult by the modern world. More and more human beings live in vast urban environments, surrounded by other human beings and the creations of human beings. The natural world, the traditional source of self-awareness, is increasingly absent. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Self quotes by Greil Marcus
#83. Renee's self-possession, her ability to possess other selves, is a measure of the weakness of her husband, his inability to stop his own self from splitting in half. #Quote by Greil Marcus
Self quotes by Meg Rosoff
#84. I hate you, I thought, I hate you with your bloody nature-boy airs and your bloody forced-march voyage of bloody discovery. I wondered then if Finn's personality worked on everyone, or whether I had just the the right sort of mentality to fall in step with a self-centered hermit-boy crab murderer. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Self quotes by Caitlin Thomas
#85. If happiness comes at all: which is by no means prearranged; it comes by the way, while you are seeking for something else. Something outside yourself, beyond yourself: in a brief absorption of self-forgetfulness. #Quote by Caitlin Thomas
Self quotes by Kelli O'Hara
#86. It is such a luxury to open a new book that's highly recommended by friends - either an inspirational yet humorously self-deprecating memoir, or a page-turning piece of fiction. #Quote by Kelli O'Hara
Self quotes by Thabiso Monkoe
#87. It's often in your deepest misery that brings out your greatest self #Quote by Thabiso Monkoe
Self quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#88. Don't be led by the opinions of others. Listen to your sacred voice. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self quotes by Lydhia Marie
#89. Or when you're drunk, your brain doesn't have the ability to differentiate your feelings from your selves', which leads you to act impulsively when influenced by your Red-self; like a child, when influenced by your Yellow-self; or to do everything slowly and act like Einstein, when influenced by your Blue-self. Same thing applies for other types of drugs." -Samera #Quote by Lydhia Marie
Self quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#90. What is destiny? It's simply the path of tomorrow. What is tomorrow? It's simply the projection of today. And your action today is the only force that forges the destiny of not just your own, but indeed of your society, for your life is not separate from your society. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Self quotes by Alex Sheshunoff
#91. Midlife crises are the best-funded stage of rebellion, because, finally, the rebel himself can lavish the amount of money he feels befits the depth of his self-pity. #Quote by Alex Sheshunoff
Self quotes by Michael Lewis
#92. Individual Greeks are delightful: funny, warm, smart, and good company. I left two dozen interviews saying to myself, "What great people!" They do not share the sentiment about one another: the hardest thing to do in Greece is to get one Greek to compliment another behind his back. No success of any kind is regarded without suspicion. Everyone is pretty sure everyone is cheating on his taxes, or bribing politicians, or taking bribes, or lying about the value of his real estate. And this total absence of faith in one another is self-reinforcing. The epidemic of lying and cheating and stealing makes any sort of civic life impossible; the collapse of civic life only encourages more lying, cheating, and stealing. Lacking faith in one another, they fall back on themselves and their families. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Self quotes by Kristen Stewart
#93. I know who I am. I have a very strong sense of self. #Quote by Kristen Stewart
Self quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#94. Entering by the carré, a piece of mirror- glass, set in an oaken cabinet, repeated my image. It said I was changed: my cheeks and lips were sodden white, my eyes were glassy, and my eyelids swollen and purple.

On rejoining my companions, I knew they all looked at me - my heart seemed discovered to them: I believed myself self-betrayed. Hideously certain did it seem that the very youngest of the school must guess why and for whom I despaired. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Self quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#95. We are who we are because of what we learn and what we remember. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Self quotes by Stella Ralfini
#96. A queen never leaves her throne to address peasants throwing stones. #Quote by Stella Ralfini
Self quotes by Marcel Proust
#97. It's odd how a person always arouses admiration for his moral qualities among the relatives of another with whom he has sexual relations. Physical love, so unjustifiably decried, makes everyone show, down to the least detail, all he has of goodness and self-sacrifice, so that he shines even in the eyes of those nearest to him. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Self quotes by Paul Brunton
#98. Among the values of meditation is that it carries consciousness down to a deeper level, thus letting man live from his centre, not his surface alone. The result is that the physical sense-reactions do not dominate his outlook wholly, as they do an animal's. Mind begins to rule them. This leads more and more to self-control, self-knowledge, and self-pacification. #Quote by Paul Brunton
Self quotes by David Foster Wallace

Look-At-Me-Being-So-Totally-Open-And-Sincere-I-Rise-Above-The-Whole-Disingenuous-Posing-Process-Of-Attracting-Someone-,-And-I-Transcend-The-Common-Disingenuity-In-A-Bar-Herd-In-A-Particularly-Hip-And-Witty-Self-Aware-Way-,-And-If-You-Will-Let-Me-Pick-You-Up-I-Will-Not-Only-Keep-Being-This-Wittily,-Transcendently-Open-,-But-Will-Bring-You-Into-This-World-Of-Social-Falsehood-Transcendence, #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Self quotes by William Gaddis
#100. That's what it is, this arrogance, in this flamenco music this same arrogance of suffering, listen. The strength of it's what's so overpowering, the self-sufficiency that's so delicate and tender without an instant of sentimentality. With infinite pity, but refusing pity. It's a precision of suffering, he went on, abruptly working his hand in the air as though to shape it there,
the tremendous tension of violence all enclosed in a framework ... in a pattern that doesn't pretend to any other level but its own, do you know what I mean? He barely glanced at her to see if she did.
It's the privacy, the exquisite sense of privacy about it, he said speaking more rapidly,
it's the sense of privacy that most popular expressions of suffering don't have, don't dare have, that's what makes it arrogant. #Quote by William Gaddis
Self quotes by Felix Wantang
#101. Humanity is completely consumed with the pleasures of the flesh; we have been self-programmed to lose consciousness of the soul. #Quote by Felix Wantang
Self quotes by Dean Koontz
#102. When making his music, he [Elvis Presley] had been the essence of cool, but in his movies he was often a self-parody embarrassing to watch. Colonel Parker, his manager, who had picked movie scrips for him, had served Elvis less well than the monk Rasputin had served Czar Nicholas and Alexandra. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Self quotes by Napoleon Hill
#103. It is in quiet that our best ideas occur to us. Don't make the mistake of believing that by a frantic kind of dashing around you are being your most effective and efficient self. Don't assume that you are wasting time when you take time out for thought. #Quote by Napoleon Hill

#108. Stop validating your victim mentality. Shake off your self-defeating drama and embrace your innate ability to recover and achieve. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Self quotes by Philip K. Dick
#109. Masochism is more widespread than we realize because it takes an attenuated form. The basic dynamism is as follows: a human being sees something bad which is coming as inevitable. There is no way he can halt the process; he is helpess. This sense of helplessness generates a need to gain some control over the impending pain -- any kind of control will do. This makes sense; the subjective feeling of helplessness is more painful than the impending misery. So the person seizes control over the situation in the only way open to him: he connives to bring on the impending misery; he hastens it. This activity on his part promotes the false impression that he enjoys pain. Not so. It is simply that he cannot any longer endure the helplessness or the supposed helplessness. But in the process of gaining control over the inevitable misery he becomes, automatically, anhedonic. Anhedonia sets in stealthily. Over the years it takes control of him. For example, he learns to defer gratification; this is a step in the dismal process of anhedonia. In learning to defer he gratification he experiences a sense of self-mastery; he has become stoic, disciplined; he does not give way to impulse. He has "control". Control over himself in terms of his impulses and control over the external situation. He is a controlled and controlling person. Pretty soon he has branched out and is controlling other people, as part of the situation. He becomes a manipulator. Of course, he is not conciousily aware of this #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Self quotes by Stephen Covey
#110. Your ability to get along with others flows naturally from how well you are getting along with yourself from your own internal peace and harmony which is itself a function of your peace and harmony with God and your family. #Quote by Stephen Covey

Self quotes by Osho
#114. The Real Self is dangerous: dangerous to the established church, dangerous to the state, dangerous to the crowd, dangerous to tradition, because once a man knows his real self, he becomes an individual. #Quote by Osho
Self quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#115. Self-evidence, of which Russell has said so much, can only be discarded in logic by language itself preventing every logical mistake. That logic is a priori consists in the fact that we cannot think illogically. #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Self quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#116. Noble disappointment, noble self-denial are not to be admired, not even to be pardoned, if they bring bitterness. It is one thing to enter the kingdom of heaven maim; another to maim yourself and stay without. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson

You dissolve into that absolute presence. #Quote by Gian Kumar
Self quotes by Frantz Fanon
#127. Once their rage explodes, they recover their lost coherence, they experience self-knowledge through reconstruction of themselves; from afar we see their war as the triumph of barbarity; but it proceeds on its own to gradually emancipate the fighter and progressively eliminates the colonial darkness inside and out. As soon as it begins it is merciless. Either one must remain terrified or become terrifying - which means surrendering to the dissociations of a fabricated life or conquering the unity of one's native soil. When the peasants lay hands on a gun, the old myths fade, and one by one the taboos are overturned: a fighter's weapon is his humanity. For in the first phase of the revolt killing is a necessity: killing a European is killing two birds with one stone, eliminating in one go oppressor and oppressed: leaving one man dead and the other man free; #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Self quotes by S.A. Tawks
#128. A misadventure is an act that has a safer, less self-detrimental, less interesting alternative. But you choose that act because you want to do something memorable and worthy of discussion. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Self quotes by Keith Miller
#129. Our tremendous drive for social acceptance and toward conformity in our time is causing us to train our children to be a generation of young liars who do not even realise they are lying. We train our children to be subtly dishonest almost from the crib. "Shh... don't cry in front of all these people. #Quote by Keith Miller

Self quotes by Aaron Copland
#138. Mozart in his music was probably the most reasonable of the world's great composers. It is the happy balance between flight and control, between sensibility and self-discipline, simplicity and sophistication of style that is his particular province ... Mozart tapped once again the source from which all music flows, expressing himself with a spontaneity and refinement and breath-taking rightness that has never since been duplicated. #Quote by Aaron Copland
Self quotes by Kevin Eikenberry
#139. The simple act of helping someone - with no desire (or possibility) of repayment is good for us and our self-image, and it may positively change the life or outlook of the receiver for the day! #Quote by Kevin Eikenberry
Self quotes by Chris Hedges
#140. The rebel, dismissed as impractical and zealous, is chronically misunderstood. Those cursed with timidity, fear, or blindness and those who are slaves to opportunism call for moderation and patience. They distort the language of religion, spirituality, compromise, generosity, and compassion to justify cooperation with systems of power that are bent on our destruction. The rebel is deaf to these critiques. The rebel hears only his or her inner voice, which demands steadfast defiance. Self-promotion, positions of influence, the adulation of the public, and the awards and prominent positions that come with bowing before authority mean nothing to the rebel, who understands that virtue is not rewarded. The rebel expects nothing and gets nothing. But for the rebel, to refuse to struggle, to refuse to rebel, is to commit spiritual and moral suicide. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Self quotes by Joe Thorn
#141. I know that you say you would die for your wife, and I believe you. But if that is true, why won't you let go of self-interests on her behalf? If you love her, and would lay down your life for her, why can't you lay down the remote control in order to give her your attention? Do you serve her and seek her betterment? Do you seek her growth in grace? Consider this: your calling is not only to care and provide for her in a general sense, but to seek her spiritual beautification. #Quote by Joe Thorn
Self quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#142. If there is heaven, atheists will be the first to put their foot there; they take time to find God personally. They risk losing everything when they decide He does not exist. While believers will swallow anything you throw at them to protect their own self-interests to get to heaven at all cost, atheists want a real God and I believe God will not disappoint such a genuine breed of human beings. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Self quotes by David Frum
#143. What is spreading today is repressive kleptocracy, led by rulers motivated by greed rather than by the deranged idealism of Hitler or Stalin or Mao. Such rulers rely less on terror and more on rule twisting, the manipulation of information, and the co-option of elites. Their goal is self-enrichment; the corrosion of the rule of law is the necessary means. As a shrewd local observer explained to me on a visit to Hungary in early 2016, "The main benefit of controlling a modern bureaucratic state is not the power to persecute the innocent. It is the power to protect the guilty."
No president in history has burned more public money to sustain his personal lifestyle than Donald Trump. Three-quarters of the way through his first year in office, President Trump was on track to spend more on travel in one year of his presidency than Barack Obama in eight - even though Trump only rarely ventured west of the Mississippi or across any ocean. #Quote by David Frum
Self quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#144. A princess once carefully kissed a porcupine to be kind, upon which he began to think himself a prince. He then dressed like a prince, behaved like a prince, and announced himself to be a prince. The world, therefore, saw him as such, and so a porcupine prince he was. (Of course, most were reluctant to argue with him otherwise.) #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich

Self quotes by Robert Fulghum
#146. It's just this: that there are places we all come from-deep-rooty-common places- that makes us who we are. And we disdain them or treat them lightly at our peril. We turn our backs on them at the risk of self-contempt. There is a sense in which we need to go home again-and can go home again. Not to recover home, no. But to sanctify memory. #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Self quotes by Tracy Lee Simmons
#147. History and literature rebuke our self-sufficiency; that's one reason why we ought to study them. It's not so much that people of olden times were the finest exemplars of higher humanity, for they too fell short of their ideals, as must all who aspire to higher things--that's what ideals are for. It's that we have abandoned those ideals once animating our civilization, refusing to learn them anew with each generation. We have assumed their transfer to be automatic. We have not indeed jettisoned the hope and drive that keep us working for a better world (that's the good news), but we have forgotten to cultivate ourselves as individuals. #Quote by Tracy Lee Simmons
Self quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#148. At the bottom of religious persecution is the doctrine of self-defence; that is to say, the defence of the soul. If the founder of Christianity had plainly said: 'It is not necessary to believe in order to be saved; it is only necessary to do, and he who really loves his fellow-men, who is kind, honest, just and charitable, is to be forever blest' - if he had only said that, there would probably have been but little persecution. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Self quotes by Corey Stoll

Self quotes by Paul Theroux
#150. No one was interested in Malabo - this was why the people in the village must have suspected him of having a deeper motive for visiting. He wanted something from them - why else would he come all this way to live in a hut? Altruism was unknown. Forty years of aid and charities and NGOs had taught them that. Only self-interested outsiders trifled with Africa, so Africa punished them for it. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Self quotes by Richard Russo

Self quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#153. Literature, although it stands apart by reason of the great destiny and general use of its medium in the affairs of men, is yet an art like other arts. Of these we may distinguish two great classes: those arts, like sculpture, painting, acting, which are representative, or as used to be said very clumsily, imitative; and those, like architecture, music, and the dance, which are self-sufficient, and merely presentative. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Self quotes by John De Ruiter
#154. If you move as a being in every experience of your self, your being replaces your self. #Quote by John De Ruiter
Self quotes by Franz Kafka

Self quotes by Rick Warren
#156. Fear is a self imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be. You must move against it with the weapons of faith and love. #Quote by Rick Warren
Self quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#157. I am never very forward in offering spiritual consolation to any one in distress or disease. I believe that such resources, to be of any service, must be self-evolved in the first instance. I am something of the Quaker's mind in this, and am inclined to wait for the spirit. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Self quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#158. Those moralists, on the other hand, who, following in the footsteps of Socrates, offer the individual a morality of self-control and temperance as a means to his own advantage, as his personal key to happiness, are the exceptions. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Self quotes by John Fowles
#159. I was worse off than even Alison was; she hated life, I hated mysef. I had created nothing, I belonged to nothingness, to the néant, and it seemed to me that my own death was the only thing left that I could create. #Quote by John Fowles

Self quotes by Robert Pogue Harrison
#167. Our basic human institutions - religion, matrimony, and burial, also law, language, literature, and whatever else relies on the transmission of legacy - are authored, always and from the very start, by those who cam before. The awareness of death that defines human nature is inseparable from - indeed, it arises from, our awareness that we are not self-authored, that we follow in the footsteps of the dead. . . .
Nonhuman species obey the law of vitality, but humanity in its distinctive features is through and through necrocratic. Whether we are conscious of it or not we do the will of the ancestors; their precedents are our law; we submit to their dictates, even when we rebel against them. Our diligence, hardihood, rectitude, and heroism, but also our folly, spite, rancor, and pathologies, are so many signatures of the dead on the contracts that seal our identities. We inherit their obsessions; assume their burdens; carry on their causes; promote their mentalities, ideologies, and very often their superstitions; and often we die trying to vindicate their humiliations.
Why this servitude? We have no choice. Only the dead can grant us legitimacy. Left to ourselves we all bastards. #Quote by Robert Pogue Harrison

Self quotes by Wes Fesler
#169. When the world grinds you down, bent to tear you apart, cling to what you hold dear, and stay true to your heart. For the world has a way to dismantle your cause, to exploit what you lack and expose all your flaws. But when every layer of your being is gone, and it seems there's no point anymore to go on; just remember one thing, at the end of the day, when you have self-respect they can't take that away. #Quote by Wes Fesler

Self quotes by Samuel Rutherford
#174. It is the Lord's kindness that he will take the scum off us in the fire. Who know how needful winnowing is to us and what dross we have before we enter the kingdom of God? So narrow is the entry to heaven that our knots, lumps of pride, self-love, idol-love, and world-love must be hammered off us, that we may stoop low and creep through into that narrow entry. #Quote by Samuel Rutherford
Self quotes by L. P. Jacks
#175. In its essence the Gospel is a call to make the experiment of comradeship, the experiment of fellowship, the experiment of trusting the heart of things, throwing self-care to the winds, in the sure and certain faith that you will not be deserted, forsaken nor betrayed, and that your ultimate interests are perfectly secure in the hands of the Great Companion. This insight is the center, the kernel, the growing point of the Christian religion, which, when we have it, all else is secure, and when we have it not, all else is precarious. #Quote by L. P. Jacks
Self quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#176. And in fact you're not like everyone else: you weren't ashamed just now to confess bad and even ridiculous things about yourself. Who would confess such things nowadays? No one, and people have even stopped feeling any need for self-judgment. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Self quotes by William Ernest Hocking
#180. Wherever moral ambition exists, there right exists. And moral ambition itself must be presumed present in subconsciousness, even when the conscious self seems to reject it, so long as society has resources for bringing it into action; in much the same way that the life-saver presumes life to exist in the drowned man until he has exhausted his resources for recovering respiration. #Quote by William Ernest Hocking

Self quotes by Elizabeth Taylor
#182. Marilyn Monroe seemed to have a kind of unconscious glow about her physical self that was innocent, like a child. When she posed nude, it was 'Gee, I am kind of, you know, sort of dishy,' like she enjoyed it without being egotistical. #Quote by Elizabeth Taylor
Self quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#183. The basis of irreligious criticism is: Man makes religion, religion does not make man. In other words, religion is the self-consciousness and self-feeling of man who has either not yet found himself or has already lost himself again. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens

Self quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#185. Awakening is not a state but a process: an ethical way of life and commitment that enables human flourishing. As such, it is no longer the exclusive preserve of enlightened teachers or accomplished yogis. Likewise, nirvana-the stopping of craving-is not the goal of the path but its very source. For human flourishing first stirs in that clear, bright, empty space where neurotic self-centredness realizes that it has no ground at all to stand on. One is then freed to pour forth like sunlight. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Self quotes by Richie Norton
#186. If self-employment is the opposite of employed-by-other, than a job is outsourcing your freedom (time and talent) to a boss. #Quote by Richie Norton
Self quotes by Daniel C. Dennett
#187. Our fundamental tactic of self-protection, self-control, and self-definition is not spinning webs or building dams, but telling stories, and more particularly connecting and controlling the story we tell others - and ourselves - about who we are. #Quote by Daniel C. Dennett
Self quotes by Dana Arcuri
#188. I found peace of mind when I walked away from small fights not worth fighting. I stopped fighting for people who gossiped about me. I stopped fighting for those who didn't respect me. I quit worrying about those who wouldn't value me for being me. #Quote by Dana Arcuri
Self quotes by Cinda Williams Chima
#189. He wasn't proud or arrogant, but there was a self-confidence about him that said he knew what he wanted and he was going to get it, and you'd better not get in his way. #Quote by Cinda Williams Chima
Self quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#190. The willingness to be self-critical in England is much greater than the willingness to be self-critical in America. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Self quotes by Lee L Jampolsky
#191. When we combine acceptance with self-responsibility we can then see that whenever we are in a painful or disturbing situation we have two choices: We can work compassionately to bring something positive to the situation or leave. However, the key is the mental stance that we make the choice from, and thus the first step is always accepting the moment without resistance. #Quote by Lee L Jampolsky
Self quotes by Lynne Sharon Schwartz
#192. Reading was the stable backdrop against which my life was played. It was what I used to do through long evenings. Never mornings even to one so self-indulgent, it seems slightly sinful to wake up and immediately sit down with a book and afternoons only now and then. In daylight I would pay what I owed the world. Reading was the reward, a solitary, obscure, nocturnal reward. It was what I got everything else (living) out of the way in order to do. Now the lack was taking its toll. I was having withdrawal symptoms. #Quote by Lynne Sharon Schwartz
Self quotes by Christina Strigas
#193. If you are real you risk everything. #Quote by Christina Strigas
Self quotes by Stewart O'Nan
#194. I'm sorry you don't like coming back here, her mother often said, to cap whatever petty dust-up they'd had. How could Emily explain: it wasn't her mother or Kersey she'd disowned, but her earlier self, that strange, ungrateful girl who strove to be first at everything and threw tantrums when she failed. #Quote by Stewart O'Nan
Self quotes by Connie Suttle
#195. What do you think he looks like - when he's a werewolf? I gotta tell you, that Winkler dude scared the heck out of me." Winkler had become a huge, solid black wolf with gleaming golden eyes.

"He wouldn't have growled if Philip hadn't tried to touch him," Bryce pointed out.

"Philip's an ass."

"A general consensus," Bryce sighed. "I don't know that there's any hope for him. Can you see him working at Easy-Stop someday?"

It started as a snicker, but soon Keith was lying on his side and laughing uncontrollably. He could easily see Philip snapping rudely at the customers of a self-serve gas station and convenience store. #Quote by Connie Suttle

Self quotes by Susan Anderson
#199. The recovery task for this stage is to take hold of yourself one moment at a time, to recognize that you are a separate person, a fully capable adult, responsible for your own self-care. It is no one else's responsibility to meet your emotional needs; only you can do that. Emotional self-reliance involves accepting the intense feelings of the experience, taking stock of your present reality, and assuring yourself that you will survive. #Quote by Susan Anderson
Self quotes by George Gissing
#200. Life, I fancy, would very often be insupportable, but for the luxury of self-compassion. #Quote by George Gissing
