EGO Quotes

"The great corrupter of public man is the ego.... Looking at the mirror distracts one's attention from the problem."
-- Dean Acheson

Every autobiography is concerned with two characters, a Don Quixote, the Ego, and a Sancho Panza, the Self.
-- W. H. Auden

“If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It's very important to be aware of them every time they come up.”
-- Deepak Chopra

"The authentic self is the best part of a human being. It's the part of you that already cares, that is already passionate about evolution. When your authentic self miraculously awakens and becomes stronger than your ego, then you will truly begin to make a difference in this world. You will literally enter into a partnership with the creative principle." ~Andrew Cohen~
-- Andrew Cohen

“The foundation of the Buddha's teachings lies in compassion, and the reason for practicing the teachings is to wipe out the persistence of ego, the number-one enemy of compassion.”
~ Dalai Lama

"Ego is simply an idea of who you are that you carry around with you."
--Wayne Dyer

”The pest of society are the egotist, they are dull and bright, sacred and profane, course and fine. It is a disease that like the flu falls on all constitutions.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The ego is not master in its own house.
-- Sigmund Freud

"Many could forgo heavy meals, a full wardrobe, a fine house, etcetera. It is the ego they cannot forgo."
-- Mahatma Gandhi

Showing young children in these communities, that there are outlets for their feelings, that there is room in a space for their stories to be told, and that they will be applauded - and it's not about ego, it's about connection: that their pain is everybody else's pain.
-- Tom Hiddleston

A wrong concept misleads the understanding; a wrong deed degrades the whole man, and may eventually demolish the structure of the human ego.
-- Muhammed Iqbal

The ultimate aim of the ego is not to see something, but to be something.
-- Muhammed Iqbal

“That joy-stealing ego will try to do you in every chance it gets. Get your ego out of the way and let the love shine through.” -- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

“Spiritual transcendence is transforming the rigid ego attachments into acceptance of self and others.”
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

“Spiritual transcendence is transforming the rigid ego attachments into acceptance of self and others.”
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

 

“Spiritual transcendence is transforming the rigid ego attachments into acceptance of self and others. This is one of the major tasks in later life. Jung’s work described this process of being one of Enlightenment where the ego and the self become integrated. Wisdom gained through out the lifetime helps transform losses and suffering through reflection and introspection.”
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

“What is the source of creativity and inspiration? For me it’s getting the mental clutter out of the way and pondering on a question and then letting what wisdom is innately there within me to come forth. Deciding to be a creative person means cultivating an open mind and being curious about how things work and how other wise people have viewed the process of viewing things differently. Stilling the mind by “the act of inhaling [inhalation, breathing in]” always helps. It’s knowing that there is a power greater than myself that I’m connected to that can be drawn from if, and only if, my small ego self gets out of the way.’
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

“Swallow your retorts. Don’t let them slip past that tip of your tongue. Refrain your ego mind that has the unfortunate ability to come up with a zinger designed to put another person or even yourself down. Remember your ego wants you to think that you are clever and special indeed at the expense of others or tries to make you think you are worthless by calling up self-derogatory messages. I’ve just heard that the best of relationships sometimes suffer from the tooth-marks-on-the tongue syndrome! Challenge those ego retorts.”
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

I am not here for me
I am not here to promote my ego
I am here to serve the Great Spirit
To be a voice for those afraid to speak
To be movement for those who are stuck
I am here to reveal a mystery
To learn something new about myself
-- Holly Near

Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called 'Ego'.
-- Friedrich Nietzsche

Don't let your ego get too close to your position, so that if your position gets shot down, your ego doesn't go with it.
-- Colin Powell

"Spiritual practices help us move from identifying with the ego to identifying with the soul. Old age does that for you too. It spiritualizes people naturally."
-- Ram Dass

“Give up all bad qualities in you,
banish the ego and develop the spirit of surrender.
You will then experience Bliss.”
-- Sri Sathya Sai Baba

“I - Want – Peace, I is ego, Want is desire;
Remove ego and desire and you have peace.”
-- Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Goals must never be from your ego,
but problems that cry for a solution.
-- Robert H. Schuller

To have ego means to believe in your own strength. And to also be open to other people's views. It is to be open, not closed. So, yes, my ego is big, but it's also very small in some areas. My ego is responsible for my doing what I do - bad or good.
-- Barbra Streisand

The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often also political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.
-- Eckhart Tolle

"Thinking, or more precisely identification with thinking, gives rise to and maintains the ego, which, in our Western society in particular, is out of control. It believes it is real and tries hard to maintain its supremacy. Negative states of mind, such as anger, resentment, fear, envy, and jealousy, are products of the ego."
--Eckhart Tolle

"The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness with Being."
-- Eckhart Tolle

The ego is nothing other than the focus of conscious attention.
-- Alan Watts

What is it in you that brings you to a spiritual teacher in the first place? It's not the spirit in you, since that is already enlightened, and has no need to seek. No, it is the ego in you that brings you to a teacher.
-- Ken Wilber
