A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on self, summer, and winter

I please myself with the graces of the winter scenery, and believe that we are as much touched by it as by the genial influences of summer.

A Quote by Harold Bloom on books, self, and words

Reading well makes children more interesting both to themselves and others, a process in which they will develop a sense of being separate and distinct selves.

A Quote by Jean Piaget on self

in

True interest appears when the self identifies itself with ideas or objects, when it finds in them a means of expression and they become a necessary form of fuel for its activity.

A Quote by Bob Samples on self

in

Selfish is an exploitation of others for self; selfless is an exploitation of self for others.  Both are extrinsic.  .....  Selfness.  When selfness prevails, the qualities of others are sometimes used for self and the qualities of self are often extended to others.  The basic and key difference is that exploitation is never the object of the outcome.

A Quote by Jackson Browne on discovery, music, self, and words

Self-discovery in songwriting, bringing something forth that's instructive to yourself - some of the best songs that you will ever write are the ones where you didn't have to think about any of that stuff, but nonetheless that's what's happening in the song.

A Quote by Margaret Fuller on life, nature, self, trees, and words

I fear I have not one good word to say this fair morning, though the sun shines so encouragingly on the distant hills and gentle river and the trees are in their festive hues.  I am not festive, though contented.  When obliged to give myself to the prose of life, as I am on this occasion of being established in a new home I like to do the thing, wholly and quite, - to weave my web for the day solely from the grey yarn.

Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850)

How did I come to this?
I dream myself a thousand times around the world,
But I can't get out of this place"
