A Quote by Paul Richards on enemy, self, friends, enemies, blessings, and self-love

We are trained to fear, resist, and fixate upon external enemies and to see ourselves as our most faithful and loyal friend. This is an inversion—most people never experience an external enemy that even begins to match the power of the opponent within. Although you may not know it, one of the greatest blessings that you can experience is a single moment of your life in which you are not your own worst enemy.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on self-love, sin, and self-neglecting

A Quote by Don Miguel Ruiz on seeds, impeccable, word, love, fear, self-love, quality, integrity, happy, peace, trasnced, and agreement

You can measure the impeccability of your word by your level of self-love. How much you love yourself and how you feel about yourself are directly proportionate to the quality and integrity of your word. When you are impeccable with your word, you feel good; you feel happy and at peace. You can transcend the dream of hell just by making the agreement to be impeccable with your word. Right now I am planting that seed in your mind. Whether or not the seed grows depends upon how fertile your mind is for the seeds of love. It is up to you to make this agreement with yourself: I am impeccable with my word. Nurture this seed, and as it grows in your mind, it will generate more seeds of love to replace the seeds of fear. This first agreement will change the kind of seeds your mind is fertile for.

A Quote by Corrie Woods on self-love, selfesteem, self-courtship, and joy

Living life without self-courtship has a high cost. We risk losing our sensuality, our senses, precious moments with those we love, our smile, and our joy. When we romance ourselves, it prepares a fertile garden for a profusion of love to bloom in all areas of our lives. We regain passion and now becomes a moment not to be missed!

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on self-love

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.

A Quote by Salma Hayek on beauty, beautiful, interpret, interpretation, empower, empowers, empowerment, and self-love

People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder,' and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.
