BE YOURSELF Quotes

* The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by. The saint is the man who walks through the dark paths of the world, himself a light.
-- Felix Adler

And above all things, never think that you're not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. My belief is that in life people will take you at your own reckoning.
-- Isaac Asimov

The soul that is within me no man can degrade.
-- Frederick Douglass

The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the State but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime. . .
-- Albert Einstein

* "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

If the single man plant himself indomitably on his instincts, and there abide, the huge world will come round to him.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life's cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous, half possession. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness. It is the harder, because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it. It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great person is one who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. -
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

My life is an indivisible whole, and all my attitudes run into one another; and they all have their rise in my insatiable love for mankind.
-- Mohandas K. Gandhi

Never, "for the sake of peace and quiet," deny your own experience or convictions.
-- Dag Hammarskjöld

I've realized that being happy is a choice. You never want to rub anybody the wrong way or not be fun to be around, but you have to be happy. When I get logical and I don't trust my instincts - Thats when I get in trouble.
~ Angelina Jolie

 

When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.
- Lao Tzu

* If you want to get peace, you can get it as soon as you like if we all pull together. ... Think peace, live peace, and breathe peace and you'll get it as soon as you like. -- John Lennon

If you want to get peace, you can get it as soon as you like if we all pull together. You're all geniuses and you're all beautiful. You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are. Get out there and get peace. Think peace, live peace, and breathe peace and you'll get it as soon as you like. -- John Lennon

I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside me.
-- Abraham Lincoln

One of the things my parents taught me, and I'll always be grateful for the gift, is to not ever let anybody else define me.
-- Wilma Mankiller

"You are uniquely you.
It is okay for you to be who you are. It is certainly okay for you to be yourself. A living, breathing human being with feelings." "
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

I have to keep trying to manifest actions and deeds that reflect the real me, even if the world doesn't yet see me the way I know I am inside, because I know who I am.

-- Sting

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

Do not allow yourself to be imprisoned by any affection. Keep your solitude. The day, if it ever comes, when you are given true affection there will be no opposition between interior solitude and friendship, quite the reverse. It is even by this infallible sign that you will recognize it.
-- Simone Weil

Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large; I contain multitudes.
~ Walt Whitman

* "You've got to follow your passion. You've got to figure out what it is you love--who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams."
-- Oprah Winfrey
