Trust yourself, don't try to convince others
Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.
Nobody deserves your tears, but whoever deserves them will not make you cry.
And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others.
Respect yourself and others will respect you.
Happiness is inside you, not with another person.
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else’s eyes.

People who want the most approval get the least and the people who need approval the least get the most.
Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.
You are very powerful, provided you know how powerful you are.
I think everybody’s weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.
The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.

Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.
A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
If you want to see the love of your life, look in the mirror.
Everyone is a mirror image of yourself—your own thinking coming back at you.
You are what exists before all stories. You are what remains when the story is understood.
We are entering the dimension where we have control - the inside.
We're so trendy we can't even escape ourselves.
Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.
