Others quotes (39)

However much we guard ourselves against it we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.
Eric Hoffer   Category: Others

The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.
Stephen R. Covey   Category: Others

Do not unto others that which is hateful unto thee.
Rabbi Hillel   Category: Others

We teach people how to remember we never teach them how to grow.
Oscar Wilde   Category: Others

Lifes most persistent and urgent question is What are you doing for others?
Martin Luther King Jr.   Category: Others

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
Carl Sandburg   Category: Others

We must not allow other peoples limited perceptions to define us.
Virginia Satir   Category: Others

If I have seen further than others it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.
Sir Isaac Newton   Category: Others

Some folks rail against other folks because other folks have what some folks would be glad of.
Henry Fielding   Category: Others

Just as I support my life neither by robbery nor alms but by my own effort so I do not seek to derive my happiness from the injury or the favour others of but earn it by my own achievement. Just as I do not consider the pleasure of others as the goal of my life so I do not consider my pleasure as the goal of the lives of others. Just as there are no contradictions in my values and no conflicts among my desires so there are no victims and no conflicts of interest among rational men men who do not desire the unearned and do not view one another with a cannibals lust men who neither make sacrifice nor accept them.
Ayn Rand   Category: Others

People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them poisoned.
James Baldwin   Category: Others

We gain nothing by being with such as ourselves; we encourage each other in mediocrity. I am always longing to be with men more excellent than myself.
Lamb   Category: Others

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other as just as fair And having perhaps the better claim because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood and I I took the one less traveled by And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost   Category: Others

From childhoods hour I have not been As others were; I have not seen As others saw; I could not bring My passions from a common spring. From the same source I have not taken My sorrow; I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone; And all I loved I loved alone. Then- in my childhood in the dawn Of a most stormy life- was drawn From every depth of good and ill The mystery which binds me still: From the torrent or the fountain From the red cliff of the mountain From the sun that round me rolled In its autumn tint of gold From the lightning in the sky As it passed me flying by From the thunder and the storm And the cloud that took the form (When the rest of Heaven was blue) Of a demon in my view.
Edgar Allan Poe   Category: Others

To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken a case among cases a world among worlds that the largeness of mind without which objectivity is self-congratulation and tolerance a sham comes.
Clifford Geertz   Category: Others

Everyone alters and is altered by everyone else. We are all the time taking in portions of one another or else reacting against them and by these involuntary acquisitions and repulsions modifying ourselves.
Gerald Brenan   Category: Others

We think as we do mainly because other people think so.
Samuel Butler   Category: Others

I quote others only the better to express myself.
Michel Eyquem de Montaigne   Category: Others

Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.
Dr. Albert Schweitzer   Category: Others

It is up to us to give ourselves recognition. If we wait for it to come from others we feel resentful when it doesnt and when it does we may well reject it.
Bernard Berkowitz   Category: Others

Don't worry too much about what people think because they seldom do.
Unknown   Category: Others

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.
Francois Voltaire   Category: Others

To live happily with other people one should ask of them only what they can give.
Tristan Bernard   Category: Others

Live simply that others might simply live.
Elizabeth Seaton   Category: Others

When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain and Think of Things you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.
Alan Alexander Milne   Category: Others

Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust? That no one should exalt himself over the other.
Bahaullah   Category: Others

If we do not maintain Justice Justice will not maintain us.
Francis Bacon   Category: Others

For you to be successful sacrifices must be made. Its better that they are made by others but failing that youll have to make them yourself.

Other mens sins are before our eyes; our own are behind our backs.

If you don't like yourself you cant like other people.
