Love Quotes, Sayings about Loving Yourself
|Love yourself first and everything else falls
into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything
done in this world.
I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself.
Do you want to meet the love of your life? Look in the mirror.
Our first and last love is - self-love
Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of
waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
Veronica A. Shoffstall
If you must love your neighbor as yourself, it is at least as
fair to love yourself as your neighbor.
Nicholas de Chamfort
Self-love seems so often unrequited.
If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult
time loving anyone, since you'll resent the time and energy
you give another person that you aren't even giving to yourself.
Barbara De Angelis
The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others.
To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.
You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting
yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence
can make others happy.
The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less.
Love yourself instead of abusing yourself.
I celebrate myself, and sing myself.
Self-love, my liege, is not so vile a sin, as self-neglecting.
To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself
heaven. Don't wait until you die. If you wait, you die now.
If you love, you live now.
The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in
order that I may love myself is very different from the image
which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they
may love me.
W. H. Auden
To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself,
value yourself. And that's political, in its most profound way.
Self-love is the greatest of all flatterers.
François de la Rochefoucauld
Don't forget to love yourself.
I'm not the greatest; I'm the double greatest. Not only do I
knock 'em out, I pick the round.
If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can
love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy.
I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same
as the meaning of the fact that I am Black: it means that I
must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though
my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve
your love and affection.
Self-love is not opposed to the love of other people. You cannot
really love yourself and do yourself a favor without doing people
a favor, and vise versa.
Dr Karl Menninger
Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We are wont to condemn self-love; but what we really mean to
condemn is contrary to self-love. It is that mixture of selfishness
and self-hate that permanently pursues us, that prevents us
from loving others, and that prohibits us from losing ourselves.
It's not your job to like me - it's mine
Love brings you face to face with your self. It's impossible
to love another if you cannot love yourself.
He who is in love with himself has at least this advantage -
he won't encounter many rivals.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Every man is prompted by the love of himself to imagine that
he possesses some qualities, superior, either in kind or degree,
to those which he sees allotted to the rest of the world; and,
whatever apparent disadvantages he may suffer in the comparison
with others, he has some invisible distinctions, some latent
reserve of excellence, which he throws into the balance, and
by which he generally fancies that it is turned in his favour.
Getting ahead in a diffcult profession requires avid faith in
yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but
with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly
The degree to which you love yourself will determine your ability
to love the other person, who will be reflecting back to you
many of your own personality traits and qualities.
The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.
Carl Gustav Jung
Love yourself, for if you don't, how can you expect anybody
else to love you?
You can measure the impeccability of your word by your level
of self-love. How much you love yourself and how you feel about
yourself are directly proportionate to the quality and integrity
of your word. When you are impeccable with your word, you feel
good; you feel happy and at peace. You can transcend the dream
of hell just by making the agreement to be impeccable with your
word. Right now I am planting that seed in your mind. Whether
or not the seed grows depends upon how fertile your mind is
for the seeds of love. It is up to you to make this agreement
with yourself: I am impeccable with my word. Nurture this seed,
and as it grows in your mind, it will generate more seeds of
love to replace the seeds of fear. This first agreement will
change the kind of seeds your mind is fertile for.
Don Miguel Ruiz
He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals.
Living life without self-courtship has a high cost. We risk
losing our sensuality, our senses, precious moments with those
we love, our smile, and our joy. When we romance ourselves,
it prepares a fertile garden for a profusion of love to bloom
in all areas of our lives. We regain passion and now becomes
a moment not to be missed!
Imagine when you look in the mirror that the face looking back
at you is someone you truly love. Just imagine.
People often say that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder,"
and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing
that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in
places where others have not dared to look, including inside
We have nothing to lose by trusting the infinite power of the
Self, except the bondage of our own ignorance.
Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)
My primary relationship is with myself- all others are mirrors
of it. As I learn to love myself, I automatically receive the
love and appreciation that I desire from others. If I am commited
to myself and to living my truth, I will attract others with
equal commitment. My willingness to be intimate with my own
deep feelings creates the space for intimacy with another.
Loving yourself is healing the world.
Self-love is the foundation of our loving practice. Without
it our other efforts to love fail. Giving ourselves love we
provide our inner being with the opportunity to have the unconditional
love we may have always longed to receive from someone else.
bell hooks (Gloria Jean Watkins)
A low self-love in the parent desires that his child should
repeat his character and fortune.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In jealousy there is more of self-love, than of love to another.
Duc de La Rochefoucauld
