Pursue, keep up with, circle round and round your life, as a dog does his master's chaise. Do what you love. Know your own bone, gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave.
George Gurdjieff (1873 - 1949)
Without self-knowledge, without understand the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave . . . .
The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind.
Francis Herbert Bradley (1846 - 1924)
How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944)
It is much more difficult to judge oneself, than to judge others.
