self-importance

A Quote by Sherman Alexie on literature, enjambment, assonance, alliteration, and self-importance

Let us now celebrate the literary allusion.
Let us now celebrate the trope and willful
enjambment. Let us now celebrate
the assonance and alliteration of all of it.
Let us now celebrate the sound of our own voices.

Sherman Alexie

A Quote by Frank Salvato on love, death, neglect, narcissism, crimes, excuses, integrity, courage, truth, desire, self-importance, and giving

"Love doesn't die a natural death. Love has to be killed, either by neglect or narcissism. Those guilty of these two crimes of the heart always hide behind excuses convenient; too ashamed, lacking in integrity and courage to face the truth. To them, it is always something other than their own actions, desires and self-importance that dictate circumstances. For these people, so blind to truth, true love can never be fully experienced for they have never really given of themselves all that they are."

A Quote by Thomas Szasz on humble, humility, ego, children, age, learning, self-importance, vanity, and self-esteem

Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all.

Thomas Szasz (1920 - ?)
