19 True Self Quotes from Literature

Why do they always teach us that it's easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It's the hardest thing in the world—to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want. ~ The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand I am I, and I won't subordinate my taste to the unanimous judgment of mankind. ~ Martin Eden by Jack London Constantly just to herself, mind! This is the quality of true passion. ~ Sandra Belloni by George Meredith She was always trying to be what her husband wished, and never able to repose on his delight in what she was. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot "Instead of always harping on a man's faults, tell him of his virtues. Try to pull him out of his rut of bad habits. Hold up to him his better self, his REAL self that can dare and do and win out!" ~ Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter Few people can resist doing what is universally expected of them. This invisible pressure is more difficult to stand against than individual tyranny. ~ That Fortune by Charles Dudley Warner "It is no use lying to one's self." ~ A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen "My dear Watson," said he, "I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues. To the logician all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to underestimate one's self is as much a departure from truth as to exaggerate one's own powers." ~ The Greek Interpreter by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "To go wrong in one's own way is better than to go right in someone else's." ~ Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky One cannot violate the promptings of one's nature without having that nature recoil upon itself. ~ White Fang by Jack London
