Self is the lord of self, who else could be the lord?. (Quote by - Friedrich Max Muller)

Hardly a man in the world has an opinion upon morals, politics or religion which he got otherwise than through his associations and sympathies.

The result is Conformity. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

He who stops being better stops being good. (Quote by - Oliver Cromwell)

The individual woman is required a thousand times a day to choose either to accept her appointed role and thereby rescue her good disposition out of the wreckage of her self-respect, or else follow an independent line of behavior and rescue her self-respect out of the wreckage of her good disposition.

In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day. (Quote by - Stephen R. Covey)

Don't worry about growing older or pleasing others. Please yourself. (Quote by - David Brown)

An individual's self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change. A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life. (Quote by - Dr. Joyce Brothers)

If you strive to find your Self by using your mind, you will strive and strive in vain, because the mind cannot give you the Truth. You are that Self. All else is illusion of the mind's creation. (Quote by - Sri Sathya Sai Baba)

For self is the lord of self, self is the refuge of self; therefore curb thyself as the merchant curbs a good horse. (Quote by - Friedrich Max Muller)

The history of the world is full of men who rose to leadership, by sheer force of self-confidence, bravery and tenacity. (Quote by - Mahatma Gandhi)

Generosity is another quality which, like patience, letting go, non-judging, and trust, provides a solid foundation for mindfulness practice. You might experiment with using the cultivation of generosity as a vehicle for deep self-observation and inquiry as well as an exercise in giving. A good place to start is with yourself. See if you can give yourself gifts that may be true blessings, such as self-acceptance, or some time each day with no purpose. Practice feeling deserving enough to accept these gifts without obligation-to simply receive from yourself, and from the universe. (Quote by - Jon Kabat-Zinn)

Do t back down just to keep the peace. Standing up for your beliefs builds self-confidence and self-esteem. (Quote by - Oprah Winfrey)

If somebody doesn't have the self-awareness and self-respect to conduct themselves in a polite and business-like fashion, then that could be an indication of their lack of ability to be a strong performer. (Quote by - Mark Greene)

Boomers always struck me as very self-centered and self-important, because there are so many of us. We're always in the middle of the next fun moment at some everlasting party, and we're not able to defer the gratification to tackle the long-term problems. (Quote by - Michael Franc)

What could begin to deny self, if there were not something in man different from self?. (Quote by - William Law)

Existence is the only reality for the self. As water cannot be separated from wetness, so you, the self, cannot be separated from existence. Existence is an integral aspect of your essence. (Quote by - Science of Identity Foundation- Jagad Guru Chris Butler)
