Favorite Personal Description Quotes

1. "If a man is going to be an American at all let him be so without any qualifying adjectives, and if he is going to be something else, let him drop the word American from his personal description."
Author: Henry Cabot Lodge
2. "Masculinity is simply a conglomeration of the personality traits necessary for the patriarchal soldier-rapist: physically strong, emotionally cauterized, rational, domineering, cruel. All of this is supposed to add up to "handsome" as well. Likewise femininity is ultimately a description of the personality that results from trauma and powerlessness: weak, passive, yielding, emotional, hyper-vigilant to the needs of the dominators and desperate for the dominator's attention."
Author: Lierre Keith
3. "Is a little remarkable, that—though disinclined to talk overmuch of myself and my affairs at the fireside, and to my personal friends—an autobiographical impulse should twice in my life have taken possession of me, in addressing the public. The first time was three or four years since, when I favoured the reader—inexcusably, and for no earthly reason that either the indulgent reader or the intrusive author could imagine—with a description of my way of life in the deep quietude"
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
4. "Many fear the loss of the Ego, but it is actually gain. When a person loses the Ego, she can become One with All. This is the Source of all Power, Grace, and Dignity. The loss of Ego and the merging into the One actually increases personal power beyond verbal description. Some experience this in the Marriage merger of two into one, and that is good, however, the married couple can also surrender its collective Ego to become One with All. This is what some people hint at when they say God is the 3rd Person in their marriage. Obviously, God is much more than that. Perhaps such a married couple could say, We are One with God, We are One with All."

...if reality is hard and flat and unjust, then it's better to adjust to what really is than to complain that it isn't what you wish. That was what made me lose faith..... But having lost it, soon I doubted my lack of faith. There were niggling hints of meaning everywhere."
