Knowing Thy Self

This above all; to thine own self be true.
William Shakespeare
If we lose love and self-respect for each other, this is how we finally die.
Maya Angelou
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.
Benjamin Franklin
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.
Khalil Gibran
Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.
Sun Tzu
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.

Napoleon Hill

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.
Oprah WinfreyI am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great pope, Self.
