If we lose love and self-respect for each other, this is how we finally die.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
Can anything be so elegant as to have few wants, and to serve them one’s self?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms.
Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.
I had no idea that being your authentic self could make me as rich as I’ve become. If I had, I’d have done it a lot earlier.
I am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great pope, Self.
