Favorite Self Reliance From Ralph Emerson Quotes

1. "Humility is the displacement of self by the enthronement of God."
Author: Andrew Murray
2. "The interior life is often stupid. Its egoism blinds it and deafens it; its imagination spins out ignorant tales, fascinated. It fancies that the western wind blows on the Self, and leaves fall at the feet of the Self for a reason, and people are watching. A mind risks real ignorance for the sometimes paltry prize of an imagination enriched. The trick of reason is to get the imagination to seize the actual world—if only from time to time."
Author: Annie Dillard
3. "Listening to one's self as well as to others is a sacred act of healing. There is a higher octave of listening that hears the wisdom within the words."

4. "Why we ask questions: Questions are the basis of human freedom. Our mind, as a part of our  self experience, is curious and always challenging that part of us that can think about the essence of things. We interpret our lives all the time - with unconscious deep conceptualization - and these conceptualization raise questions.Why did I feel the way I felt yesterday when I spoke with X? What is the meaning of my answer? Why I chose to spend time in X's company and not Y's? And how it changed my attitude toward Y?(Interesting paragraph I translated from the Hebrew edition)"
Author: Christopher Bollas
5. "He is dead and I, the self serving coward that I am, still live. Life is not fair. There is no pattern. People die at random. Something everyone knows, but no one truly believes. They think that when it comes to them there will be a lesson, a meaning, a story worth telling. That death will come to them as a dread scholar, a fell knight, a terrible emperor.Death is a bored clerk, with too many orders to fill. There is no reckoning. No profound moment. It creeps up on us from behind, and snatches us away while we shit."
Author: Joe Abercrombie

Author: Lecy Goranson
7. "The self is just not a worthy enough vehicle to worship."

8. "This kind of thinking, he found, is not the way to make one's self popular with other birds. Even his parents were dismayed as Jonathan spent whole days alone, making hundreds of low-level glides, experimenting."

9. "Writing is such an industry now. In many ways, that's a good thing, in that it removes all the muse-like mystique and makes it a plain old job, accessible to everyone. But with industry comes jargon. I was aware that jargon was starting to fill those growing shelves of Writer's Self Help books, not to mention the blogosphere. Wherever I looked, the writing of a script was being reduced to A, B, C plots, Text and Subtext, Three Act Structure and blah, blah, blah. And I'd think, that's not what writing is! Writing's inside your head! It's thinking! It's every hour of the day, every day of your life, a constant storm of pictures and voices and sometimes, if you're very, very lucky, insight."
Author: Russell T. Davies
10. "Roseanne, Roseanne, if I called to you now, my own self calling to my own self, would you hear me? And if you could hear me, would you heed me?"
Author: Sebastian Barry
11. "Next day, after lunch, I went to see "our" doctor, a friendly fellow whose perfect bedside manner and complete reliance on a few patented drugs adequately masked his ignorance of, and indifference to, medical science."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
12. "George Bernard Shaw once said: "Capitalism has destroyed ourbelief in any effective power but that of self interest backed by force."When liberals make the argument that capitalism is the cause of allof our problems, they are either speaking out of abject ignoranceor being totally disingenuous to protect their own political interests.We have not had true free-market capitalism in this country on anywide scale. Where we have had economic successes in this nation'shistory, it has been those times when people have done somethingoutside of the government's involvement. Every single time the federalgovernment has been involved, it has created chaos, waste, andcorruption. The historical record is overwhelmingly one of grossincompetence."
