Here are The
One's Self Quotes.



  1. This above all -- to thine own self be true,
    And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any man.
    (Shakespeare : Hamlet)



  2. It is most important to understand yourself. It is actually very simple. People just make it so difficult. Once you understand what causes pain, everything becomes very clear and simple. Everyone has their own most pure aspect of themselves within. But all the external stuff comes in and covers up and hides your pure side.
    (Jet Li : International Movie Star)



  3. And now, the end is near, and so I face, the final curtain.

    My friend, I'll say it clear, I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

    I've lived, a life that's full, I've travelled each and every highway

    But more, much more than this, I did it my way.

    Regrets, I've had a few, but then again, too few to mention

    I did, what I had to do, and saw it through, without exemption

    I planned, each charted course, each careful step along the byway,

    But more, much more than this, I did it my way.


    Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew

    When I bit off, more than I could chew.

    But through it all, when there was doubt,

    I ate it up, and spit it out.

    I faced it all and I stood tall, and did it my way.


    I've loved, I've laughed and cried, I've had my fill; my share of losing.

    And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing.

    To think, I did all that, and may I say - not in a shy way,

    "No, oh no not me, I did it my way".


    For what is a man, what has he got?

    If not himself, then he has naught.

    To say the things, he truly feels,

    And not the words of one who kneels.

    The record shows I took the blows

    And did it my way!

    I did it my way.
    (Paul Anka : 1915-1998 : American singer and film actor and this song was recorded by both Mr. Anka and Mr. Sinatra.)



  4. The lion saw himself in the well.

    He was so enraged that he could not distinguish himself from his enemy.

    O Reader, how many an evil that you see in others is but your own nature reflected in them!

    In them appears all that you are - your hypocrisy, iniquity and insolence.

    You do not see clearly the evil in yourself. Else you would hate yourself with all your soul.
    (Jalaluddin Rumi : translated from Persian)



  5. Who ever you are, there is some younger person who thinks you are perfect. There is some work that will never be done if you don't do it. There is some one who would miss you if you were gone. There is a place that you alone can fill.
    (Jacob Braude)



  6. The wretch, concentrated all in self,
    Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
    And, doubly dying, shall go down
    To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
    Unwept, unhonour'd and unsung.
    (Walter Scott : The Lay of the Last Minstrel)



  7. I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
    And what I assume you shall assume....
    I have said that the soul is not more than the body,
    And I have said that the body is not more than the soul,
    And nothing, not God, is greater to one than one's self is.
    (Walt Whitman : Song of Myself)



  8. I used to believe that one person could not make a difference. But I know now that that is not true. Jesus made a difference, Muhammad and Gandhi and Einstein and Churchill.... I think we must all do what we can.
    (Sidney Sheldon : The Sands of Time)



  9. The reason you were born was to leave your own indelible mark on the world. This is your authenticity.... Respect your creative urges... step out in faith... you will discover your choices are as authentic as you are. What is more, you will discover that your life is all it was meant to be : a joyous sonnet of thanksgiving.
    (Sarah Ban Breathnach : Simple Abundance)



  10. You have within you more resources of energy than have ever been tapped, more talent than has ever been exploited, more strength than has ever been tested and more to give than you have ever given.
    (John Gardner)



  11. Anyone who thinks that he is too small to make a difference has never been in bed with a mosquito.
    (Anonymous)
