Self

«Now, here is the point about the self: it is insatiable. It is always, always hankering. It is what you might call rapacious to a fault. The great flaming mouth to the thing is never in this world going to be stuff full.»

Donald Barthelme

«Being goal-oriented instead of self-oriented is crucial. I know so many people who want to be writers. But let me tell you, they really don't want to be writers. They want to have been writers. They wish they had a book in print. They don't want to go through the work of getting the damn book out. There is a huge difference.»

James A. Michener

Erica Bauermeister


«Somehow they fail to see that for someone aggravated by depression, self-help will be useless, indeed, it is precisely the self that needs to be forgotten.»

Haruki Murakami


«it doesn't matter, if you're on a dirt road, just follow it, you'll hit some asphalt again»

Norbert Harms


«I suppose it’s not a social norm, and not a manly thing to do — to feel, discuss feelings. So that’s what I’m giving the finger to. Social norms and stuff…what good are social norms, really? I think all they do is project a limited and harmful image of people. It thus impedes a broader social acceptance of what someone, or a group of people, might actually be like.»

Jess C. Scott


«Your real self may be hiding somewhere, look for it within, when you find yourself, you can freely be what you want to be.»
