“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”― Lao Tzu
"How can I be a great man - like you?"
"Why be a great man?" said the Master. "Being a man is a great enough achievement."
~ Anthony de Mello
“There is a magnificent, beautiful, wonderful painting in front of you! It is intricate, detailed, a painstaking labor of devotion and love! The colors are like no other, they swim and leap, they trickle and embellish! And yet you choose to fixate your eyes on the small fly which has landed on it! Why do you do such a thing?”
― C. JoyBell C.
"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are."
(Some say the author was Kurt Cobain and others say it was Marilyn Monroe..)
“No amount of self-improvement can make up for any lack of self-acceptance.”
― Robert Holden
P.S: When we choose to live with greater awareness…we are able to see the uniqueness in everyone and everything including ourselves…and find no reason to be anyone else.
The quality of one’s life depends greatly on one’s level of self acceptance.
