Engrave this Quote Mitch: True love is hard to find, sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego and a couple of nude people jump out of your bathroom blindfolded like a goddamn magic show ready to double team your girlfriend...

Engrave this Quote Ron Burgundy: Stay classy, San Diego.
Tell a Friend-
Engrave this Quote Ron Burgundy: Ahh, what a beautiful view. Yes, San Diego. You know they've done studies, and it truely is the greatest city in the world. The Germans discovered it in 1904, and they called it San Diego, which in German means whale's vagina. Veronica Corningstone: No, I don't think that is what it means. No, it doesn't mean that. Ron Burgundy: I don't know. I was just trying to impress you. I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. The translation was lost hundreds of years ago. Veronica Corningstone: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego? Ron Burgundy: ...No. No, that isn't it. Veronica Corningstone: No, I'm pretty sure that's what it means. Ron Burgundy: Agree to disagree.

Engrave this Quote The Science of Government it is my Duty to study, more than all other Sciences: the Art of Legislation and Administration and Negotiation, ought to take Place, indeed to exclude in a manner all other Arts. I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Mathematicks and Philosophy. My sons ought to study Mathematicks and Philosophy, Geography, natural History, Naval Architecture, navigation, Commerce and Agriculture, in order to give their Children a right to study Painting, Poetry, Musick, Architecture, Statuary, Tapestry and Porcelaine.
Tell a Friend-John Adams
Engrave this Quote Freedom of speech is useless without freedom of thought. And I fear that the politics of protest is shutting out the process of thought, so necessary to rational discussion. We are faced with the Ten Commandments of Protest:Thou Shalt Not Allow Thy Opponent to Speak. Thou Shalt Not Set Forth a Program of Thine Own. Thou Shalt Not Trust Anybody Over Thirty. Thou Shalt Not Honor Thy Father or Thy Mother. Thou Shalt Not Heed the Lessons of History. Thou Shalt Not Write Anything Longer than a Slogan. Thou Shalt Not Present a Negotiable Demand. Thou Shalt Not Accept Any Establishment Idea. Thou Shalt Not Revere Any but Totalitarian Heroes. Thou Shalt Not Ask Forgiveness for Thy Transgressions, Rather Thou Shalt Demand Amnesty for Them.
Tell a Friend-Spiro T. Agnew
Engrave this Quote 1. The era of appeasement must come to an end. The political and social demands that dissidents are making of the universities do not flow from sound basic educational criteria, but from strategic considerations on how to radicalize the student body, polarize the campus and extend the privileged enclaves of student power. 2. A concise and clear set of rules for campus conduct should be established, transmitted to incoming freshmen, and enforcedwith immediate expulsion the penalty for serious violations. 3. It is folly for universities confronted with their current crisis in our turbulent times to open their doors to thousands of patently unqualified students. 4. No negotiations under threat or coercion. 5. No amnesty for lawlessness or violence. 6. Any organization which publicly declares its intention to violate the rules of an academic community and which carries out that declaration should be barred from campus. 7. We must look to how we are raising our children. 8. We must look to the university that receives those children. Is it prepared to deal with the challenge of the nondemocratic Left?9. Let us support those courageous administrators, professors and students on our college campuses who are standing up for the traditional rights of the academic community.

Engrave this Quote Eagerly, musician,Sweep your string,So we may sing,Elated, optative,Our several voicesInterblending,Playfully contending,Not interferingBut co-inhering,For all withinThe cincture of the soundIs holy ground,Where all are Brothers,None faceless Others. Let mortals bewareOf words, forWith words we lie,Can say peaceWhen we mean war,Foul thought speak fairAnd promise falsely,But song is true:Let music for peaceBe the paradigm,For peace means to changeAt the right time,As the World-Clock,Goes Tick and Tock. So may the storyOf our human cityPresently moveLike music, whenBegotten notesNew notes beget,Making the flowingOf time a growing,Till what it could be,At last it is,Where even sadnessIs a form of gladness,Where Fate is Freedom,Grace and Surprise.
Tell a Friend-W. H. Auden
Engrave this Quote In the last few decades entire new categories of waste have come to plague and menace the American scene. Pollution is growing at a rapid rate. Pollution destroys beauty and menaces health. It cuts down on efficiency, reduces property values and raises taxes. Almost all these wastes and pollutions are the result of activities carried on for the benefit of man. A prime national goal must be an environment that is pleasing to the senses and healthy to live in. Our Government is already doing much in this field. We have made significant progress. But more must be done.
Tell a Friend-Lyndon B. Johnson
Engrave this Quote There is, therefore, only one categorical imperative. It is: Act only according to that maxim by which you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law.
Tell a Friend-Immanuel Kant
Engrave this Quote Gentlemen, suppose all the property you were worth was in gold, and you had put it in the hands of Blondin to carry across the Niagara River on a rope, would you shake the cable, or keep shouting out to himBlondin, stand up a little straighterBlondin, stoop a little morego a little fasterlean a little more to the northlean a little more to the south? No, you would hold your breath as well as your tongue, and keep your hands off until he was safe over. The Government are carrying an immense weight. Untold treasures are in their hands. They are doing the very best they can. Dont badger them. Keep silence, and well get you safe across.
Tell a Friend-Abraham Lincoln
Engrave this Quote The constitution supposes, what the History of all Governments demonstrates, that the Executive is the branch of power most interested in war, & most prone to it. It has accordingly with studied care, vested the question of war in the Legislature. But the Doctrines lately advanced strike at the root of all these provisions, and will deposit the peace of the Country in that Department which the Constitution distrusts as most ready without cause to renounce it. For if the opinion of the President not the facts & proofs themselves are to sway the judgment of Congress, in declaring war, and if the President in the recess of Congress create a foreign mission, appoint the minister, & negociate a War Treaty, without the possibility of a check even from the Senate, untill the measures present alternatives overruling the freedom of its judgment; if again a Treaty when made obliges the Legislature to declare war contrary to its judgment, and in pursuance of the same doctrine, a law declaring war, imposes a like moral obligation, to grant the requisite supplies until it be formally repealed with the consent of the President & Senate, it is evident that the people are cheated out of the best ingredients in their Government, the safeguards of peace which is the greatest of their blessings.
Tell a Friend-James Madison
Engrave this Quote There is the grand truth about Nathaniel Hawthorne. He says NO! in thunder; but the Devil himself cannot make him say yes. For all men who say yes, lie; and all men who say no,why, they are in the happy condition of judicious, unincumbered travellers in Europe; they cross the frontiers into Eternity with nothing but a carpet-bag,that is to say, the Ego. Whereas those yes-gentry, they travel with heaps of baggage, and, damn them! they will never get through the Custom House.
Tell a Friend-Herman Melville
Engrave this Quote I originated a remark many years ago that I think has been copied more than any little thing that Ive every said, and I used it in the FOLLIES of 1922. I said America has a unique record. We never lost a war and we never won a conference in our lives. I believe that we could without any degree of egotism, single-handed lick any nation in the world. But we cant confer with Costa Rica and come home with our shirts on.
Tell a Friend-Will Rogers
Engrave this Quote I must walk toward Oregon, and not toward Europe. And that way the nation is moving, and I may say that mankind progress from east to west. We go eastward to realize history and study the works of art and literature, retracing the steps of the race; we go westward as into the future, with a spirit of enterprise and adventure.
Tell a Friend-Henry David Thoreau
Engrave this Quote To admit then a right in the House of Representatives to demand, and to have as a matter of course, all the Papers respecting a negotiation with a foreign power, would be to establish a dangerous precedent. It does not occur that the inspection of the papers asked for, can be relative to any purpose under the cognizance of the House of Representatives, except that of an impeachment, which the resolution has not expressed. I repeat, that I have no disposition to withhold any information which the duty of my station will permit, or the public good shall require to be disclosed: and in fact, all the Papers affecting the negotiation with Great Britain were laid before the Senate, when the Treaty itself was communicated for their consideration and advice. The course which the debate has taken, on the resolution of the House, leads to some observations on the mode of making treaties under the Constitution of the United States.
Tell a Friend-George Washington
Action(s)
Engrave this Quote Every man of action has a strong dose of egoism, pride, hardness, and cunning. But all those things will be regarded as high qualities if he can make them the means to achieve great ends.
Tell a Friend-Charles De Gaulle
Engrave this Quote Doing is a quantum leap from imagining. Thinking about swimming isn't much like actually getting in the water. Actually getting in the water can take your breath away. The defense force inside of us wants us to be cautious, to stay away from anything as intense as a new kind of action. Its job is to protect us, and it categorically avoids anything resembling danger. But it's often wrong. Anything worth doing is worth doing too soon.
Tell a Friend-Barbara Sher
Actors, Acting
Engrave this Quote An actor is totally vulnerable. His total personality is exposed to critical judgment - his intellect, his bearing, his diction, his whole appearance. In short, his ego.
Tell a Friend-Sir Alec Guinness
Engrave this Quote It's a business you go into because you're an egocentric. It's a very embarrassing profession.
Tell a Friend-Katharine Hepburn
Engrave this Quote An actress must never lose her ego -- without it she has no talent.
Tell a Friend-Norma Shearer
Advice
Engrave this Quote Disease an never be conquered, can never be quelled by emotion's willful screaming or faith's symbolic prayer. It can only be conquered by the energy of humanity and the cunning in the mind of man. In the patience of a Curie, in the enlightenment of a Faraday, a Rutherford, a Pasteur, a Nightingale, and all other apostles of light and cleanliness, rather than of a woebegone godliness, we shall find final deliverance from plague, pestilence, and famine.
Tell a Friend-Sean O'Casey
America
Engrave this Quote It is impossible for a stranger traveling through the United States to tell from the appearance of the people or the country whether he is in Toledo, Ohio, or Portland, Oregon. Ninety million Americans cut their hair in the same way, eat each morning exactly the same breakfast, tie up the small girls curls with precisely the same kind of ribbon fashioned into bows exactly alike; and in every way all try to look and act as much like all the others as they can.
Tell a Friend-Lord Northcliffe
Animals
Engrave this Quote Animals used to provide a lowlife way to kill and get away with it, as they do still, but, more intriguingly, for some people they are an aperture through which wounds drain. The scapegoat of olden times, driven off for the bystanders sins, has become a tender thing, a running injury. There, running away is me: hurt it and you are hurting me.
Tell a Friend-Edward Hoagland
Art
Engrave this Quote The creative artist seems to be almost the only kind of man that you could never meet on neutral ground. You can only meet him as an artist. He sees nothing objectively because his own ego is always in the foreground of every picture.
Tell a Friend-Raymond Chandler
Engrave this Quote The best introduction by far to representation of the human figure in art. The Nude is a beautifully written work of sophisticated connoisseurship that analyzes art in its own terms rather than imposing strident, politicized categories on it. It outlines the major body types, male and female, in Western art and, via a wealth of illustrations, trains the reader's eye to detect and evaluate proportion. This book reveres art
Tell a Friend-Camille Anna Paglia, From an article for Women's Quarterly regarding Kenneth Clark's The Nude (1956), 2002
Authors & Writing
Engrave this Quote Writers must fortify themselves with pride and egotism as best they can. The process is analogous to using sandbags and loose timbers to protect a house against flood. Writers are vulnerable creatures like anyone else. For what do they have in reality? Not sandbags, not timbers. Just a flimsy reputation and a name.
Tell a Friend-Brian W. Aldiss
Engrave this Quote Of course I'm a black writer. I'm not just a black writer, but categories like black writer, woman writer and Latin American writer aren't marginal anymore. We have to acknowledge that the thing we call literature is more pluralistic now, just as society ought to be. The melting pot never worked. We ought to be able to accept on equal terms everybody from the Hasidim to Walter Lippmann, from the Rastafarians to Ralph Bunche.
Tell a Friend-Toni Morrison
Automobiles
Engrave this Quote Automobiles are free of egotism, passion, prejudice and stupid ideas about where to have dinner. They are, literally, selfless. A world designed for automobiles instead of people would have wider streets, larger dining rooms, fewer stairs to climb and no smelly, dangerous subway stations.
Tell a Friend-P. J. O'Rourke
Engrave this Quote No other man-made device since the shields and lances of the ancient knights fulfills a man's ego like an automobile.
Tell a Friend-Sir William
Beauty
Engrave this Quote The pursuit of beauty is much more dangerous nonsense than the pursuit of truth or goodness, because it affords a stronger temptation to the ego.
Tell a Friend-Northrop Frye
Business
Engrave this Quote Women do not win formula one races, because they simply are not strong enough to resist the G-forces. In the boardroom, it is different. I believe women are better able to marshal their thoughts than men and because they are less egotistical they make fewer assumptions.
Tell a Friend-Nicola Foulston
Engrave this Quote Negotiating means getting the best of your opponent.
Tell a Friend-Marvin Gaye
Engrave this Quote The worst disease which can afflict executives in their work is not, as popularly supposed, alcoholism; it's egotism.
Tell a Friend-Harold S. Geneen
Engrave this Quote The correct strategy for Americans negotiating with Japanese or other foreign clients is a Japanese strategy: ask questions. When you think you understand, ask more questions. Carefully feel for pressure points. If an impasse is reached, don't pressure. Suggest a recess or another meeting.
Tell a Friend-John L. Graham
Engrave this Quote Prepare by knowing your walk away conditions and by building the number of variables you can work with during the negotiation... you need to have a walk away... a combination of price, terms, and deliverables that represents the least you will accept. Without one, you have no negotiating road map.
Tell a Friend-Keiser
Engrave this Quote If you are planning on doing business with someone again, don't be too tough in the negotiations. If you're going to skin a cat, don't keep it as a house cat.
Tell a Friend-Marvin S. Levin
Engrave this Quote Only free men can negotiate. Prisoners cannot enter into contracts.
Tell a Friend-Nelson Mandela
Engrave this Quote The lesson of all history warns us that we should negotiate only when our military superiority is so convincing that we can achieve our objective at the conference table, and deny the aggressor theirs.
Tell a Friend-Richard Milhous Nixon
Engrave this Quote The American businessmen, as a class, have demonstrated the greatest productive genius and the most spectacular achievements ever recorded in the economic history of mankind. What reward did they receive from our culture and its intellectuals? The position of a hated, persecuted minority. The position of a scapegoat for the evils of the bureaucrats.
Tell a Friend-Ayn Rand
Engrave this Quote Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.
Tell a Friend-William Shakespeare
Change
Engrave this Quote When you make a career change there has to be some kind of connection. I remember a Beverly Hills attorney who wanted to become a potato farmer in Oregon. Well, there's a guy who's born to lose.
Tell a Friend-Lew Richfield
Character
Engrave this Quote An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life:
A fight is going on inside me, he said to the boy. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too.
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,Which wolf will win?
The old Cherokee simply replied, The one you feed.

Tell a Friend-American Indian Proverb
Children
Engrave this Quote Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Tell a Friend-Sigmund Freud
Choice
Engrave this Quote When we begin to realize that we are the co-creators of our lives, we begin to understand the incorporation of Spirit. It is here that we understand the meaning of choice. Through choice we have the opportunity to be responsible for how we act, re-act, think, feel and Be. It is within this responsibility that we can release the ego
Tell a Friend-Linda McCord, The Relationship of Self, February 26, 2005
Christianity
Engrave this Quote No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul.
Tell a Friend-W. Somerset Maugham
Common Sense
Engrave this Quote Common-sense is part of the home-made ideology of those who have been deprived of fundamental learning, of those who have been kept ignorant. This ideology is compounded from different sources: items that have survived from religion, items of empirical knowledge, items of protective skepticism, items culled for comfort from the superficial learning that is supplied. But the point is that common-sense can never teach itself, can never advance beyond its own limits, for as soon as the lack of fundamental learning has been made good, all items become questionable and the whole function of common-sense is destroyed. Common-sense can only exist as a category insofar as it can be distinguished from the spirit of inquiry, from philosophy.
Tell a Friend-John Berger
Confidence
Engrave this Quote If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It's very important to be aware of them every time they come up.
Tell a Friend-Deepak Chopra
Engrave this Quote If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that ... I believe in what I do, and I'll say it.
Tell a Friend-John Lennon
Conflict
Engrave this Quote Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Tell a Friend-Richard Milhous Nixon
Conversation
Engrave this Quote How ironical that it is by means of speech that man can degrade himself below the level of dumb creation -- for a chatterbox is truly of a lower category than a dumb creature.
Tell a Friend-Soren Kierkegaard
Engrave this Quote It's apparent that we can't proceed any further without a name for this institutionalized garrulousness, this psychological patter, this need to catalogue the ego's condition. Let's call it psychobabble, this spirit which now tyrannizes conversation in the seventies.
Tell a Friend-Richard D. Rosen
Criticism
Engrave this Quote A reader who quarrels with postulates, who dislikes Hamlet because he does not believe that there are ghosts or that people speak in pentameters, clearly has no business in literature. He cannot distinguish fiction from fact, and belongs in the same category as the people who send checks to radio stations for the relief of suffering heroines in soap operas.
Tell a Friend-Northrop Frye
Debt / Borrow / Loan
Engrave this Quote One day Donald Trump will discover that he is owned by Lutheran Brotherhood and must re negotiate his debt load with a committee of silent Norwegians who don't understand why anyone would pay more than $120.00 for a suit.
Tell a Friend-Garrison Keillor
Deception/Lying
Engrave this Quote In our country the lie has become not just a moral category but a pillar of the State.
Tell a Friend-Alexandr Solzhenitsyn
Depression
Engrave this Quote Grief is depression in proportion to circumstance; depression is grief out of proportion to circumstance. It is tumbleweed distress that thrives on thin air, growing despite its detachment from the nourishing earth. It can be described only in metaphor and allegory
Tell a Friend-Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression
Desires
Engrave this Quote Something must be done when you find an opposing set of desires of this kind well to the fore in your category of strong desires. You must set in operation a process of competition, from which one must emerge a victor and the other set be defeated.
Tell a Friend-Robert Collier
Despair
Engrave this Quote Despair is typical of those who do not understand the causes of evil, see no way out, and are incapable of struggle. The modern industrial proletariat does not belong to the category of such classes.
Tell a Friend-Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov)
Diplomacy
Engrave this Quote Negotiation in the classic diplomatic sense assumes parties more anxious to agree than to disagree.
Tell a Friend-Dean Acheson
Discipline
Engrave this Quote Don't think you can attain total awareness and whole enlightenment without proper discipline and practice. This is egomania. Appropriate rituals channel your emotions and life energy toward the light. Without the discipline to practice them, you will tumble constantly backward into darkness.
Tell a Friend-Lao-Tzu
Dreams
Engrave this Quote The notion of this universe, its heavens, hells, and everything within it, as a great dream dreamed by a single being in which all the dream characters are dreaming too, has in India enchanted and shaped the entire civilization. The ultimate dreamer is Vishnu floating on the cosmic Milky Ocean, couched upon the coils of the abyssal serpent Ananta, the meaning of whose name is Unending. In the foreground stand the five Pandava brothers, heroes of the epic Mahabharata, with Draupadi, their wife: allegorically , she is the mind and they are the five senses. They are those whom the dream is dreaming. Eyes open, ready and willing to fight, the youths address themselves to this world of light in which we stand regarding them, where objects appear to be distinct from each other, and an Aristotelian logic prevails, and A is not not-A. Behind them a dream-door has opened, however, to an inward, backward dimension where a vision emerges against darkness...
Tell a Friend-Joseph Campbell, The Mythic Image
Engrave this Quote The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens into that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was a conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.
Tell a Friend-Carl Gustav Jung, The Meaning of Psychology for Modern Man
Education
Engrave this Quote Education must have two foundations --morality as a support for virtue, prudence as a defense for self against the vices of others. By letting the balance incline to the side of morality, you only make dupes or martyrs; by letting it incline to the other, you make calculating egoists.
Tell a Friend-Sebastian Roch Nicolas Chamfort
Ego
Engrave this Quote One must be very diligent in watching the ego's use of the mask of spirituality to manoeuvre its self-serving intentions—narcissism, financial, emotional, and psychological fulfillment.
Tell a Friend-
Engrave this Quote The great corrupter of public man is the ego....Looking at the mirror distracts one's attention from the problem.
Tell a Friend-Dean Acheson, from a speech to the Society of American Historians, as reported in The Wall Street Journal, April 22, 1966
Engrave this Quote If egotism means a terrific interest in one's self, egotism is absolutely essential to efficient living.
Tell a Friend-Arnold Bennett
Engrave this Quote Egotist. A person of low taste, more interested in himself than me.
Tell a Friend-Ambrose Bierce
Engrave this Quote An egotist is a person interested in himself than in me!
Tell a Friend-Ambrose Bierce
Engrave this Quote Big egos are big shields for lots of empty space.
Tell a Friend-Diana Black
Engrave this Quote Sensitiveness is closely allied to egotism; and excessive sensibility is only another name for morbid self-consciousness. The cure for tender sensibilities is to make more of our objects and less of our selves.
Tell a Friend-Christian Nevell Bovee
Engrave this Quote Well, one of the problems about being psychoanalyzed is, as Nietzsche said, Be careful lest in casting out your devils that you cast out the best thing that's in you. So many people who are really in deep analysis look as though and act as though they have been filleted. There's no bone there, there's no stuff! How to get rid of ego as dictator and turn it into messenger and servant and scout, to be in your service, is the trick.
Tell a Friend-Joseph Campbell, The Hero's Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life and Work By Joseph Campbell; Edited and with an introduction by Phil Cousineau; Foreword by Stuart L. Brown
Engrave this Quote Egotism is the source and summary of all faults and miseries.
Tell a Friend-Thomas Carlyle
Engrave this Quote In any influence, will, a self, the ego, the I AM is the greater force to be dealt with, but as numbers do influence, a knowledge of same certainly gives an individual a foresight into relationships.
Tell a Friend-Edgar Cayce
Engrave this Quote Thinking is often regarded as an extension of the ego. Clever children in school base their egos on being clever and on being right all the time. They dislike group work because they cannot then show the rest of the class where the good idea originated. When the ego and thinking are treated as the same thing there is a reluctance to be wrong and a need to defend a point of view rather than to explore the situation. A person should be able to treat his thinking much as a tennis player treats his strokes: he should be able to walk off the court complaining that his backhand was not working very well on that occasion or that it required more practice.
This new meta-system is very much in favour of the self, but a self that is based on a proper sense of dignity, not on an inflated ego. A person who dare not admit he is wrong inflates his ego but weakens his self.

Engrave this Quote The pest of society are the egotist, they are dull and bright, sacred and profane, course and fine. It is a disease that like the flu falls on all constitutions.

Tell a Friend-Lucille S. Harper
Engrave this Quote Egotism is the art of seeing in yourself what others cannot see.
Tell a Friend-George V. Higgins
Engrave this Quote An inflated consciousness is always egocentric and conscious of nothing but its own existence. It is incapable of learning from the past, incapable of understanding contemporary events, and incapable of drawing right conclusions about the future. It is hypnotized by itself and therefore cannot be argued with. It inevitably dooms itself to calamities that must strike it dead.
Tell a Friend-Carl Gustav Jung
Engrave this Quote Egotism is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity.
Tell a Friend-Frank Leahy
Engrave this Quote Modern man believes he is fruitful and productive when his ego is aggressively affirmed, when he is visibly active, and when his action produces obvious results.
Tell a Friend-Thomas Merton, Love & Living
Engrave this Quote Egotism is usually subversive of sagacity.
Tell a Friend-Marianne Moore
Engrave this Quote Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.
Tell a Friend-Colin Powell
Engrave this Quote Channels, psychological and psychic, always exist, sending communications back and forth through the various levels of the self, and the ego accepts necessary information and data from inner portions of the personality without question. Its position in fact depends in a large manner upon this unquestioning acceptance of inner data. The ego, in other words, the

Engrave this Quote Intolerance itself is a form of egoism, and to condemn egoism intolerantly is to share it.
Tell a Friend-George Santayana
Engrave this Quote If the egotist is weak, his egotism is worthless. If the egotist is strong, acute, full of distinctive character, his egotism is precious, and remains a possession of the race.
Tell a Friend-Alexander Smith
Engrave this Quote With the disappearance of God the Ego moves forward to become the sole divinity.
Tell a Friend-Dorothee Sölle, The Silent Cry: Mysticism and Resistance
Engrave this Quote If some really acute observer made as much of egotism as Freud has made of sex, people would forget a good deal about sex and find the explanation for everything in egotism.
Tell a Friend-Wallace Stevens
Engrave this Quote The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often also political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.
Tell a Friend-Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now
Empire
Engrave this Quote An empire is an immense egotism.
Tell a Friend-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Envy / Jealousy
Engrave this Quote There is a sort of jealousy which needs very little fire; it is hardly a passion, but a blight bred in the cloudy, damp despondency of uneasy egoism.
Tell a Friend-George Eliot
Equality
Engrave this Quote The intelligence suffers today automatically in consequence of the attack on all authority, advantage, or privilege. These things are not done away with, it is needless to say, but numerous scapegoats are made of the less politically powerful, to satisfy the egalitarian rage awakened.

Failure

Tell a Friend-Francis Picabia
Fashion
Engrave this Quote Fashon is the abortive issue of vain ostentation and exclusive egotism: it is haughty, trifling, affected, servile, despotic, mean and ambitious, precise and fantastical, all in a breath -- tied to no rule, and bound to conform to every whim of the minute.

Fear
Engrave this Quote Let us never negotiate out of fear but let us never fear to negotiate.
Tell a Friend-John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Film / Filmmaking / Movies
Engrave this Quote The making of a picture ought surely to be a rather fascinating adventure. It is not; it is an endless contention of tawdry egos, some of them powerful, almost all of them vociferous, and almost none of them capable of anything much more creative than credit-stealing and self-promotion.
Tell a Friend-Raymond Chandler
