A Quote by Robert Adams on ego, i, and self


When you abide in the I you're abiding in the ego. The I is really the
ego, the small I. It turns into the Self eventually.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on self, fish, and entity

If a fish is born in your aquarium and you call him John, write out a birth certificate, tell him about his family history, and in two minutes he gets eaten by another fish -- that's tragic. But it's only tragic because you projected a separate self where there was none. You got hold of a fraction of dynamic process, a molecular dance, and a separate entity out of it.

A Quote by Ray Kurzweil on boundary, singularity, and self

Molly 2004: The boundary of myself is seeming less and less clear.

Ray: Well, just wait until we're predominantly nonbiological. Then we'll be able to merge our thoughts and thinking at will, so finding boundaries will be even more difficult.

Molly 2004: That actually sounds kind of appealing, You know, some Buddhist philosophies emphasize the extent to which there is inherently no boundary at all between us.

Ray: Sounds like they're talking about the Singularity

Knowing oneself is not so much a question of discovering what is present in one's self, but rather the creation of who one wants to be.

gives you a clue.

A Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne on doubt, heroism, obstacles, self, and wisdom

The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one's self a fool; the truest heroism is to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom to know when it ought to be resisted, and when to be obeyed.

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on change, love, nature, place, observation, self, and universe

Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.
