J.W. Teal

Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
St. Augustine

As a man thinks, so is he.
Proverbs 23, verse 7.

One's own self is well hidden from one's own self; of all mines of treasure, one's own is the last to be dug up.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Mignon McLaughlin
The Neurotic's Notebook.

One may understand the cosmos, but never the ego; the self is more distant than any star.
G.K. Chesterton

There, but for me, go I.
Orrin Woodward

To the question of your life you are the answer, and to the problems of your life you are the solution.
Joe Cordare

The chains of our habits are too light to feel until they are too heavy to be broken.
Warren Buffett

It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts.
K.T. Jong

It is not only the most difficult thing to know oneself, but the most inconvenient one, too.
H.W. Shaw

Our imagination is more powerful than knowledge.
Albert Einstein

Man can starve from a lack of self-realization as much as... from a lack of bread.
Richard Wright

God, why do I storm heaven for answers that are already in my heart? Every grace I need has already been given me. Oh, lead me to the Beyond within.
Macrina Wiederkehr

Man stands in his own shadow and wonders why it's dark.
Zen Proverb

If you can imagine it, you can create it. If you dream it, you can become it.
William Arthur Ward

William Shakespeare

Every one of us has in him a continent of undiscovered character. Blessed is he who acts the Columbus to his own soul.
Author Unknown

"Know thyself" - a maxim as pernicious as it is odious. A person observing himself would arrest his own development. Any caterpillar who tried to "know himself" would never become a butterfly.
