Self


Behind your thoughts and feelings, my brother, there stands a mighty ruler, an unknown sage – whose name is Self. In your body he dwells; he is your body. There is more reason in your body than in your best wisdom. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Dwelling upon the self too much produces terrible fatigue. A man in that position is deaf and blind to everything else. The fatigue itself makes him cease to see the marvels all around. - Carlos Castaneda

Everyone needs a strong sense of self. It is our base of operations for everything that we do in life. - Unknown

One may understand the cosmos, but never the ego; the self is more distant than any star. - Gilbert Chesterton

The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action. - John Dewey
