A Quote by unknown on acceptance, anger, bitterness, correction, emotion, envy, faith, fear, forgiveness, joy, love, peace, self-esteem, sorrow, worth, and yielding

There are two trees, each yielding its own fruit. One of them is negative . . . it grows from lack of self-worth and its fruits are fear, anger, envy, bitterness, sorrow - and any other negative emotion. Then there is the tree of positive emotions. Its nutrients include self-forgiveness and a correct self concept. Its fruits are love, joy, acceptance, self-esteem, faith, peace . . . and other uplifting emotions.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on character, habits, honor, independence, men, privacy, self-esteem, simplicity, solitude, and world

Self Esteem::"It is very easy in the world to live by the opinion of the world. It is very easy in solitude to be self-centered. But the finished man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. I knew a man of simple habits and earnest character who never put out his hands nor opened his lips to court the public, and having survived several rotten reputations of younger men, honor came at last and sat down with him upon his private bench from which he had never stirred.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on god, good, honesty, and self-esteem

Looking for honest ways to lift one another would . . . be more beneficial to our own self-esteem, for we would see more good in ourselves. We would cease to be so critical of our weaknesses and would find ways to allow our weaknesses to become strengths with God's help.

A Quote by Nathaniel Branden on achievement, belief, life, opposites, popularity, reward, and self-esteem

To preserve an unclouded capacity for the enjoyment of life is an unusual moral and psychological achievement. Contrary to popular belief, it is not the prerogative of mindlessness, but the exact opposite: It is the reward of self-esteem.
