self-perception

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on questions, wonder, change, mystery, self-perception, and identity

Dear, dear!  How queer everything is to-day!  And yesterday things went on just as usual.  I wonder if I've been changed in the night?  Let me think:  was I the same when I got up this morning?  I almost think I can remember feeling a little different.  But if I'm not the same, the next question is, Who in the world am I?  Ah, that's the great puzzle!

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)

A Quote by Leontyne Price on race, america, pride, black, african american, self-perception, and self-confidence

The way I was taught, being black was a plus, always. Being a human being, being in America, and being black, all three were the greatest things that could happen to you. The combination was unbeatable.

Leontyne Price (1927 -)

A Quote by John Eliot on self-perception, performance, and reality

Stick with your own perception of yourself—living in your own world—and letting your reality, not the reality presented by other people or particular situations, control your performance.

A Quote by John Eliot on potential, confidence, and self-perception

Genuine confidence is a way of thinking about yourself and your abilities. Confidence is your perception of your own potential; it’s a kind of long-term thinking that powers you through the obstacles and tough times, helping you solve problems and putting you in the way of success. Your confidence is quite a separate matter from your social skills.
