The self thus becomes aware of itself, at least in its practical action, and discovers itself as a cause among other causes and as an object subject to the same laws as other objects.
Jean Piaget
I have always preferred the reflection of the life to life itself.
Francois Truff

Love is rarer than genius itself. And friendship is rarer than love.
Charles Peguy
Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.
Stephen Hawking
What the public wants is the image of passion, not passion itself.
Roland Barthes
We just feel like history repeats itself. You ain’t never going to see nothing brand new; you’re only going to see when records are broken. And we’re here to just set records and set trends and follow the footsteps that have been shown to us.
Quavo
By philosophy the mind of man comes to itself, and from henceforth rests on itself without foreign aid, and is completely master of itself, as the dancer of his feet, or the boxer of his hands.
Johann Gottlieb Fichte
To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.
Aaron Copland
A good advertisement is one which sells the product without drawing attention to itself.
David Ogilvy
A real failure does not need an excuse. It is an end in itself.
Gertrude Stein
The unfed mind devours itself.
Gore Vidal
Reality only reveals itself when it is illuminated by a ray of poetry.
Georges Braque
Life would pall if it were all sugar; salt is bitter if taken by itself; but when tasted as part of the dish, it savours the meat. Difficulties are the salt of life.
Robert Baden-Powell
How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself anything less than a god.
Alan Watts
To me, ‘The End of the Jews’ – both the title and the novel itself – is about the end of pat, uncritical ways of understanding oneself in the world.
Adam Mansbach
The past itself, as historical change continues to accelerate, has become the most surreal of subjects – making it possible… to see a new beauty in what is vanishing.
Susan Sontag
Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn’t organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.
Ivan Illich
Internet governance is an oxymoron. The Internet must govern itself. But you can’t play cricket without any rules.
Kapil Sibal
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
Khalil Gibran
We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.
John Lennon
Every song has a composer, every book has an author, every car has a maker, every painting has a painter, and every building has a builder. So it isn’t irrational to take this simple logic a little further and say that nature must have had a Maker. It would be irrational to believe that it made itself.
Ray Comfort
All business sagacity reduces itself in the last analysis to judicious use of sabotage.
Thorstein Veblen
The nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The English language is nobody’s special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself.
Derek Walcott
However much I might try to expound or explain Love, when I come to Love itself, I am ashamed of my explanations… Love alone can explain the mysteries of love and lovers.
Rumi
Child slavery is a crime against humanity. Humanity itself is at stake here. A lot of work still remains, but I will see the end of child labor in my lifetime.
Kailash Satyarthi
An ‘unemployed’ existence is a worse negation of life than death itself.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
Reality, by itself, becomes a story by Philip K. Dick.
Philip K. Dick
There exists only the present instant… a Now which always and without end is itself new. There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow, but only Now, as it was a thousand years ago and as it will be a thousand years hence.
Meister Eckhart
Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence.
Daniel Burnham
Rock and Roll has no beginning and no end for it is the

Rock and Roll has no beginning and no end for it is the very pulse of life itself.
Larry Williams
I don’t believe that if I came out as bisexual the world will change. But it’s really important for people to be truthful about who they are and fight for equality. We need to help the world usher itself into the next phase.
Olivia Thirlby
Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.
Plautus
Women always excel men in that sort of wisdom which comes from experience. To be a woman is in itself a terrible experience.
H. L. Mencken
I think that music, being an expression of the human heart, or of the human being itself, does express just what is happening – the whole of human experience at the particular time that it is being expressed.
John Coltrane
‘No’ is an entire sentence in itself. No means no, and when somebody says it, you need to stop.
Amitabh Bachchan
All respect for the office of the presidency aside, I assumed that the obvious and unadulterated decline of freedom and constitutional sovereignty, not to mention the efforts to curb the power of judicial review, spoke for itself.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.
George Orwell
I used to be of the opinion that it didn’t matter who you voted for. The world balanced itself out and kept on truckin’. Which is true, but politics are still important.
Jim Jefferies
Where is the justice of political power if it executes the murderer and jails the plunderer, and then itself marches upon neighboring lands, killing thousands and pillaging the very hills?
Khalil Gibran
My purity manifests itself in countless ways, including an utter inability to sit idly when exposed to attacks on truth, reason, logic, and/or individual dignity.
Gad Saad
The function of posterity is to look after itself.
Dylan Thomas
Death in itself is nothing; but we fear to be we know not what, we know not where.
John Dryden
Insomnia is a vertiginous lucidity that can convert paradise itself into a place of torture.
Emil Cioran
Good conductors know when to let an orchestra lead itself. Ninety percent of what a conductor does comes in the rehearsal – the vision, the structure, the architecture.
Joshua Bell
The medical profession is – and knows itself to be – endemically conservative and conformist.
Margaret Heffernan
History rarely repeats itself, but its echoes never go away.
Tariq Ali
All bad qualities centre round the ego. When the ego is gone, Realisation results by itself. There are neither good nor bad qualities in the Self. The Self is free from all qualities. Qualities pertain to the mind only.
Ramana Maharshi
This is an exciting time. I believe we stand at the edge of a new age – a Golden Age – of freedom that will rival any of the great eras of world history because it will be the entire world itself that is changing.
Joe Lieberman
When one loves somebody everything is clear – where to go, what to do – it all takes care of itself and one doesn’t have to ask anybody about anything.
Maxim Gorky
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
John Dewey
Every opportunity that presents itself, my main objective is to conquer and be victorious.
Kaka
In a poem the excitement has to maintain itself. I am governed by the pull of the sentence as the pull of a fabric is governed by gravity.
Marianne Moore
Misinformation is a virus unto itself. And Fox News is the vector.
Brianna Keilar
I think it’s the pain and suffering that drive you to become an artist. The art itself should be the pain, sort of exorcising every demon and making you feel like you’re a person that matters.
Marilyn Manson
The music sold itself before anybody knew who I was.
Enya
The study of the art of motorcycle maintenance is really a miniature study of the art of rationality itself. Working on a motorcycle, working well, caring, is to become part of a process, to achieve an inner peace of mind. The motorcycle is primarily a mental phenomenon.
Robert M. Pirsig
What is unusual about Earth is that language, literally, has become alive. It has infested matter. It is replicating and defining and building itself. And it is in us.
Terence McKenna
Reason obeys itself; and ignorance submits to whatever is dictated to it.
Thomas Paine
Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.
Desiderius Erasmus
The simpler the food, the harder it is to prepare it well. You want to truly taste what it is you’re eating. So that goes back to the trend of fine ingredients. It’s very Japanese: Preparing good ingredients very simply, without distractions from the flavor of the ingredient itself.
Joel Robuchon
The first thing which I can record concerning myself is

The first thing which I can record concerning myself is, that I was born. These are wonderful words. This life, to which neither time nor eternity can bring diminution – this everlasting living soul, began. My mind loses itself in these depths.
Groucho Marx
Government is an evil; it is only the thoughtlessness and vices of men that make it a necessary evil. When all men are good and wise, government will of itself decay.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Conservatism is rooted in preservation; progressivism advances alteration. These are different love languages. These languages turn on your view of change itself: When you think of America, do you see a country struggling to be maintained or one striving to be made better?
Charles M. Blow
You don’t attack the grunts of Vietnam; you blame the theory behind the war. Nobody who fought in that war was at fault. It was the war itself that was at fault. It’s the same thing with psychotherapy.
James Hillman
Thought and theory must precede all salutary action; yet action is nobler in itself than either thought or theory.
Virginia Woolf
The experience of life consists of the experience which the spirit has of itself in matter and as matter, in mind and as mind, in emotion, as emotion, etc.
Franz Kafka
Living with AIDS is like always having the sword of Damocles over your head. The disease is scarier than death itself. The disease is so messy, so devastating, so pervasive. It robs you of everything you hold dear.
Larry Kramer
Believe in yourself, not only in swimming, but in life itself. You always have to have fun. You have to have an open mind. If you’re not enjoying it, don’t do it. Life’s too short.
Debbie Meyer
It’s impossible for someone who is human to have all good things together, just as there is no single country able to provide all good things for itself.
Herodotus
Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part.
Claude Debussy
It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.
Thomas Jefferson
It’s very strange how electronic music formatted itself and forgot that its roots are about the surprise, freedom, and the acceptance of every race, gender, and style of music into this big party. Instead, it started to become this electronic lifestyle which also involved the glorification of technology.
Thomas Bangalter
On this ancient and miraculous world, where such beautiful natural and living things have evolved, something has gone wrong when life itself is used as a manufacturing process.
Roger Ebert
My buildings should have an emotional core – a space which, in itself, has an emotional nice feeling.
Peter Zumthor
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.
John Wayne
A doctrine serves no purpose in itself, but it is indispensable to have one if only to avoid being deceived by false doctrines.
Simone Weil
The development of civilization and industry in general has always shown itself so active in the destruction of forests that everything that has been done for their conservation and production is completely insignificant in comparison.
Karl Marx
I never know what I’m going to put on the canvas. The canvas paints itself. I’m just the middleman.
Peter Max
Technology feeds on itself. Technology makes more technology possible.
Alvin Toffler
We absolutely need to clean up the plastic that’s already in the ocean. It won’t go away by itself. But we do also need to make sure that no more plastic enters the oceans in the first place. These things should go hand in hand.
Boyan Slat
Life is occupied in both perpetuating itself and in surpassing itself; if all it does is maintain itself, then living is only not dying.
Simone de Beauvoir
Fortunately analysis is not the only way to resolve inner conflicts. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist.
Karen Horney
I’d assumed that a deal was a deal when Princeton admitted me, but I was wrong. The price of getting in – to the university itself, and to the great world it promised to open up – was an endless dunning for nebulous services that weren’t included in the initial quote.
Walter Kirn
By its birth, and for all time, Christianity is pledged to the Cross and dominated by the sign of the Cross. It cannot remain its own self except by identifying itself ever more intensely with the essence of the Cross.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.
John Steinbeck
History repeats itself, but the special call of an art which has passed away is never reproduced. It is as utterly gone out of the world as the song of a destroyed wild bird.
Joseph Conrad
Defending the truth is not something one does out of a sense of duty or to allay guilt complexes, but is a reward in itself.
Simone de Beauvoir
The trouble with progress is that it tends to happen slowly and quietly. It’s not necessarily going to shout about itself, or make the nightly news like a disaster or a scandal would.
Aaron Koblin
Every experience is a paradox in that it means to be absolute, and yet is relative; in that it somehow always goes beyond itself and yet never escapes itself.
T. S. Eliot
The depth of the love of parents for their children cannot be measured. It is like no other relationship. It exceeds concern for life itself. The love of a parent for a child is continuous and transcends heartbreak and disappointment.
James E. Faust
Modern education has devoted itself to the teaching of impudence, and then we complain that we can no longer control our mobs.
John Ruskin
His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a

His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a moment in the sunshine, but curls up and shrinks into itself at the slightest touch of the finger, or the lightest breath of wind.
Anne Bronte
The human being is in the most literal sense a political animal, not merely a gregarious animal, but an animal which can individuate itself only in the midst of society.
Karl Marx
My life itself is a message and I know it has changed a lot of lives.
Sudha Chandran
You have to have in mind what you want when you go public. It’s not just an end in and of itself. Suddenly, you have investors to satisfy. Investors who want – who demand – a return.
Gary Kovacs
Further, the dignity of the science itself seems to require that every possible means be explored for the solution of a problem so elegant and so celebrated.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
The house a woman creates is a Utopia. She can’t help it – can’t help trying to interest her nearest and dearest not in happiness itself but in the search for it.
Marguerite Duras
The separation of church and state was meant to protect church from state; a state that declares religion off limits in public life is a state that declares itself supreme over all religious values.
Ben Shapiro
Genius always finds itself a century too early.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As relationships progress, the time you spend smooching diminishes. Where kissing was once an enjoyable entree unto itself, it becomes a mere appetizer couples hasten through on the way to the main course.
Jenna McCarthy
A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image.
Joan Didion
It is theoretically possible to warp spacetime itself, so you’re not actually moving faster than the speed of light, but it’s actually space that’s moving.
Elon Musk
Property is unstable, and youth perishes in a moment. Life itself is held in the grinning fangs of Death, Yet men delay to obtain release from the world. Alas, the conduct of mankind is surprising.
Plautus
Tolerance always has limits – it cannot tolerate what is itself actively intolerant.
Sidney Hook
Even if the government spends itself into bankruptcy and the economy still does not recover, Keynesians can always say that it would have worked if only the government had spent more.
Thomas Sowell
When a person tests positive for HIV, it is not a test for the virus itself but for antibodies to the virus, and the test is not able to distinguish between HIV antibodies and a multitude of other antibodies. Many conditions can lead to a false positive result, including flu shots, hepatitis, and pregnancy.
Nate Mendel
Life itself is the proper binge.
Julia Child
Happiness is a by-product. You cannot pursue it by itself.
Sam Levenson
The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.
Albert Camus
Wellbeing is attained by little and little, and nevertheless is no little thing itself.
Citium Zeno
As a number of people have stressed over the years, I think it would be premature to assume science itself will explain everything.
Simon Conway Morris
What is Americanization? It manifests itself, in a superficial way, when the immigrant adopts the clothes, the manners and the customs generally prevailing here. Far more important is the manifestation presented when he substitutes for his mother tongue the English language as the common medium of speech.
Louis D. Brandeis
Information about the package is as important as the package itself.
Frederick W. Smith
I think very often the price paid for a work is the trophy itself.
Arne Glimcher
Until I began to build and launch rockets, I didn’t know my hometown was at war with itself over its children and that my parents were locked in a kind of bloodless combat over how my brother and I would live our lives.
Homer Hickam
I didn’t realize that, in doing a documentary, there is this process of discovery. It’s not like a film or a play with a set script. It sort of reveals itself.
William Shatner
Patriotism, when it wants to make itself felt in the domain of learning, is a dirty fellow who should be thrown out of doors.
Arthur Schopenhauer
The Supreme Court, of course, has the responsibility of ensuring that our government never oversteps its proper bounds or violates the rights of individuals. But the Court must also recognize the limits on itself and respect the choices made by the American people.
Elena Kagan
Words are only painted fire; a look is the fire itself.
Mark Twain
We Orientals find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and darkness which that thing provides.
Junichiro Tanizaki
Don’t be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bite-sized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to ultimate goal become a mini goal in itself.
Denis Waitley
For thousands of years, human beings have been obsessed with beauty, truth, love, honor, altruism, courage, social relationships, art, and God. They all go together as subjective experiences, and it’s a straw man to set God up as the delusion. If he is, then so is truth itself or beauty itself.
Deepak Chopra
Religion is the state of being grasped by an ultimate c

Religion is the state of being grasped by an ultimate concern, a concern which qualifies all other concerns as preliminary and which itself contains the answer to the question of a meaning of our life.
Paul Tillich
Power can be taken, but not given. The process of the taking is empowerment in itself.
Gloria Steinem
Work is spiritual. It is a place where we have the opportunity for spiritual growth. Often, these opportunities come from the ‘how’ of the ways we do our work rather than the ‘what’ of the work itself.
Anne Wilson Schaef
People were more interested in the phenomena than the art itself. This, combined with the growing interest in collecting art as an investment and the resultant boom in the art market, made it a difficult time for a young artist to remain sincere without becoming cynical.
Keith Haring
A fact in itself is nothing. It is valuable only for the idea attached to it, or for the proof which it furnishes.
Claude Bernard
Nature isn’t positive in that way. It doesn’t aim itself at you. It’s not being unkind to you.
David Attenborough
Kind thoughts are rarer than either kind words or deeds. They imply a great deal of thinking about others. This in itself is rare. But they also imply a great deal of thinking about others without the thoughts being criticisms. This is rarer still.
Frederick William Faber
We don’t talk about next year. We talk about today, and we talk about the next game. And that’s all we can really control. The rest of it will take care of itself.
Bill Belichick
It’s easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.
Johann Sebastian Bach
I think the fact that Brock Lesnar is not on the road 52 weeks a year, is not on ‘Monday Night Raw’ every episode, is not performing 300 matches per year… I think that dictates to the public, ‘Brock Lesnar is special.’ That an appearance by Brock Lesnar in an of itself is newsworthy. It’s not commonplace.
Paul Heyman
The mind of man has perplexed itself with many hard questions. Is space infinite, and in what sense? Is the material world infinite in extent, and are all places within that extent equally full of matter? Do atoms exist or is matter infinitely divisible?
James C. Maxwell
A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will in time produce a people as base as itself.
Joseph Pulitzer
M. J. was M. J. His body of work speaks for itself. We’ve seen his career, we’ve dissected his career and had the chance to watch it. That’s done.
B. J. Armstrong
There’s a quality of life in Maine which is this singular and unique. I think. It’s absolutely a world onto itself.
Jamie Wyeth
Information technology is at the core of how you do your business and how your business model itself evolves.
Satya Nadella
It’s into the same bag as E.T. and Yoda, wherein you’re trying to create something that people will actually believe, but it’s not so much a symbol of the thing, but you’re trying to do the thing itself.
Jim Henson
There’s nothing more ironic or contradictory than life itself.
Robert De Niro
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!
Audrey Hepburn
Eloquence, at its highest pitch, leaves little room for reason or reflection, but addresses itself entirely to the desires and affections, captivating the willing hearers, and subduing their understanding.
David Hume
The worst potential bio-terrorist is nature itself.
Anthony Fauci
Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.
John Adams
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
John Muir
Thought is creating divisions out of itself and then saying that they are there naturally.
David Bohm
Resolve to edge in a little reading every day, if it is but a single sentence. If you gain fifteen minutes a day, it will make itself felt at the end of the year.
Horace Mann
The Gospel itself is angular. It always has been. It always conflicts. It always challenges every generation. It challenges different generations in different ways.
D. A. Carson
Among the thousand-and-one faces whereby form chooses to reveal itself to us, the one that fascinates me more than any other, and continues to fascinate me, is the structure hidden in mathematical things.
Alexander Grothendieck
Writing itself is a dream. There are days of self doubt and deadlines and wondering how you’re going to pay the bills until you write that bestseller. But it’s still the best job I’ve ever had. I’ve also been able to help a lot of people and even inspire a few and that feels great.
Graham Brown
If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.
George Bernard Shaw
Our society distributes itself into Barbarians, Philistines and Populace; and America is just ourselves with the Barbarians quite left out, and the Populace nearly.
Matthew Arnold
History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.
Karl Marx
It is easy to see why a diversity of cultures should confront power with a problem. If culture is about plurality, power is about unity. How can it sell itself simultaneously to a whole range of life forms without being fatally diluted?
Terry Eagleton
The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself.

The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself. Of course he wants care and shelter. You don’t buy love for nothing.
William S. Burroughs
Not even analysis, by itself, can transform you. You must still do the changing yourself.
Natalie Wood
Not only the entire ability to think rests on language… but language is also the crux of the misunderstanding of reason with itself.
Johann Georg Hamann
Most people treat the present moment as if it were an obstacle that they need to overcome. Since the present moment is life itself, it is an insane way to live.
Eckhart Tolle
The modern mind is in complete disarray. Knowledge has stretched itself to the point where neither the world nor our intelligence can find any foot-hold. It is a fact that we are suffering from nihilism.
Albert Camus
If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.
Henry Ford
Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love? Great deeds are forbidden me. The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers, and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love.
Thérèse of Lisieux
As the ego cogito, subjectivity is the consciousness that represents something, relates this representation back to itself, and so gathers with itself.
Martin Heidegger
We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
Lloyd Alexander
If you look at other countries, you see they have different values: defend more, pass the ball out more, winning is holy. In England, you could say that sport itself is holy. They say, ‘Look, guys, it’s about more than just winning.’
Johan Cruyff
History repeats itself. So you might wanna pay attention.
Quavo
Resistance to the organized mass can be effected only by the man who is as well organized in his individuality as the mass itself.
Carl Jung
Poor human reason, when it trusts in itself, substitutes the strangest absurdities for the highest divine concepts.
John Chrysostom
Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.
William Shakespeare
‘Playboy’ made the good life a reality for me and made it the subject matter of my paintings – not affluence and luxury as such, but joie de vivre itself.
LeRoy Neiman
The death of Churchill at 90 was one of those watershed moments in which the obituary rises to a special calling beyond the sharing of remembered times. It gave an older generation a rare opportunity to explain something of itself to its children.
Walter Cronkite
This sentence contradicts itself – no actually it doesn’t.
Douglas Hofstadter
The farther reason looks the greater is the haze in which it loses itself.
Johann Georg Hamann
Public opinion is a permeating influence, and it exacts obedience to itself; it requires us to drink other men’s thoughts, to speak other men’s words, to follow other men’s habits.
Walter Bagehot
President Reagan was elected on the promise of getting government off the backs of the people and now he demands that government wrap itself around the waists of the people.
Ralph Nader
At first, I only laughed at myself. Then I noticed that life itself is amusing. I’ve been in a generally good mood ever since.
Marilyn vos Savant
Scientific knowledge is in perpetual evolution; it finds itself changed from one day to the next.
Jean Piaget
The real peril of war lies not in military defeat. It lies in war itself, whether we win or lose.
John T. Flynn
Everything human is pathetic. The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humor in heaven.
Mark Twain
The nation which forgets its defenders will be itself forgotten.
Calvin Coolidge
Art never harms itself by keeping aloof from the social problems of the day: rather, by so doing, it more completely realises for us that which we desire.
Oscar Wilde
Speech is civilization itself.
Thomas Mann
Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself its own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it.
Niels Bohr
Language itself changes slowly, but the Internet has speeded up the process of those changes so you notice them more quickly.
David Crystal
Genetic engineering is a result of science advancement, so I don’t think that in itself is bad. If used wisely, genetics can be beneficial, but they can be abused, too.
Hideo Kojima
The key thing about wealth in a capitalist economy is that it reproduces itself and usually earns a positive net return.
Robert Solow

The Cube is an imitation of life itself – or even an improvement on life.
Erno Rubik
Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
Matsuo Basho
Bureaucracy gives birth to itself and then expects maternity benefits.
Dale Dauten
It is very important for a priest, in the parish itself, to see how people trust in him and to experience, in addition to their trust, also their generosity in pardoning his weaknesses.
Pope Benedict XVI
Stated clearly enough, an idea may cancel itself out.
Mason Cooley
So never lose an opportunity of urging a practical beginning, however small, for it is wonderful how often in such matters the mustard-seed germinates and roots itself.
Florence Nightingale
Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.
J. K. Rowling
There’s no better book with which to defend the Bible than the Bible itself.
Dwight L. Moody
Civil strife is as much a greater evil than a concerted war effort as war itself is worse than peace.
Herodotus
Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears.
Marcus Aurelius
Education can become a self-fulfilling activity, liberating in and of itself.
Abraham Maslow
The story of Noah, like other stories in the first 11 chapters of Genesis, are archetypal. Noah’s story tells us that human beings have an inherent tendency towards violence both towards their fellow human beings and towards the creation itself. The story tells us that this violence grieves God.
Adam Hamilton
When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself.
Karen Blixen
Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself.
Potter Stewart
Technology itself is neither good nor bad. People are good or bad.
Naveen Jain
A great restaurant doesn’t distinguish itself by how few mistakes it makes but by how well they handle those mistakes.
Danny Meyer
Nothing is accidental in the universe – this is one of my Laws of Physics – except the entire universe itself, which is Pure Accident, pure divinity.
Joyce Carol Oates
Who would give a law to lovers? Love is unto itself a higher law.
Boethius
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.
John Donne
Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.
George Matthew Adams
Recognition is a reward in itself. Any form of appreciation, even a small word, is important.
Vikrant Massey
Fate is a sempiternal and unchangeable series and chain of things, rolling and unraveling itself through eternal sequences of cause and effect, of which it is composed and compounded.
Chrysippus
The best of artists has no conception that the marble alone does not contain within itself.
Michelangelo
The scarcity of the music not only makes the music itself enjoyable but it also gives the collector a strange sense of superiority.
Henry Rollins
The mind, in proportion as it is cut off from free communication with nature, with revelation, with God, with itself, loses its life, just as the body droops when debarred from the air and the cheering light from heaven.
William Ellery Channing
In my mind, if anyone can save the world from destroying itself, it will be the creative minds: the thinkers, the artists and the avant-garde trailblazers that will ultimately bring down the whole matrix of untruth and set mankind on a lesser destructive and more spiritual path.
Bez
We’re obviously going to spend a lot in marketing because we think the product sells itself.
Jim Allchin
Remember, life itself is a mission. While we are on the go, we need to stop between steps to re-focus on the Word and the Will of God. While we are on the go, I mean, while we are on the mission, we need to sometimes stop at intervals to assess our progress and prepare ourselves for the challenges ahead.
T. B. Joshua
I think it’s always better to be in an F1 car because, in general, the car behaves itself.
Max Verstappen
Very broadly, literature concerns itself with the internal, cinema with the external.
Martin Amis
Logic must look after itself. In a certain sense, we cannot make mistakes in logic.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either

Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.
John Adams
As the heat of the coal differs from the coal itself, so do memory, perception, judgment, emotion, and will, differ from the brain which is the instrument of thought.
Annie Besant
Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda.
Hannah Arendt
A physicist is just an atom’s way of looking at itself.
Niels Bohr
A categorical imperative would be one which represented an action as objectively necessary in itself, without reference to any other purpose.
Immanuel Kant
By gold all good faith has been banished; by gold our rights are abused; the law itself is influenced by gold, and soon there will be an end of every modest restraint.
Sextus Propertius
Management must speak with one voice. When it doesn’t management itself becomes a peripheral opponent to the team’s mission.
Pat Riley
We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly – spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order.
Susan L. Taylor
Brexit was a fantastic example of a nation shooting itself full in the face.
Hugh Grant
Do people have an idea of who they think I am? Yes, and that’s fine with me. My music will speak for itself.
Jamie Lynn Spears
Life is full of confusion. Confusion of love, passion, and romance. Confusion of family and friends. Confusion with life itself. What path we take, what turns we make. How we roll our dice.
Matthew Underwood
When you go on a road trip, the trip itself becomes part of the story.
Steve Rushin
There is a force of exultation, a celebration of luck, when a writer finds himself a witness to the early morning of a culture that is defining itself, branch by branch, leaf by leaf, in that self-defining dawn, which is why, especially at the edge of the sea, it is good to make a ritual of the sunrise.
Derek Walcott
Happiness is itself a kind of gratitude.
Joseph Wood Krutch
Every form, not being the whole, must, of necessity, be imperfect; less than the whole, it cannot be identical with the whole, and being less than the whole and, therefore, imperfect by itself, it shows imperfection as evil, and only the totality of a universe can mirror the image of God.
Annie Besant
We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into imagination and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms. You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.
Ray Bradbury
To read the Bible is of itself a laudable occupation and can scarcely fail of being a useful employment of time; but the habit of reflecting upon what you have read is equally essential as than of reading itself, to give it all the efficacy of which it is susceptible.
John Quincy Adams
For ideas to prevail, many of their defenders have to die in obscurity. Their anonymous influence makes itself felt.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
I have always had a very natural connection to the water, and that connection stems from the ocean itself.
Aaron Peirsol
Awards are so unnecessary because I think we get so much out of our work just by doing it. The work is a reward in itself.
Natalie Portman
Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is already up and need not strive to look better by making others look worse.
Ann Landers
Each generation doubtless feels called upon to reform the world. Mine knows that it will not reform it, but its task is perhaps even greater. It consists in preventing the world from destroying itself.
Albert Camus
I hold it the duty of the executive to insist upon frugality in the expenditure, and a sparing economy is itself a great national source.
Andrew Johnson
Every single day, I wake up and take a glimpse of where I am now compared to where I was before, and the work that we have all put in to be in this space. I think of that, and being able to express myself through my art and show up and be present – that’s activism, advocacy, and artistry in itself.
Mj Rodriguez
Sometimes, I feel like one who is on the sidelines, who has missed life itself.
Nelson Mandela
We should be careful not to vilify encryption itself, which is essential for privacy, data security, and global commerce.
Michael McCaul
The challenge itself is to exceed certain high standards you’ve set for yourself.
Dimple Kapadia
I think we’re always doing something for teenagers and youngsters because BTS originally performed itself as a socially conscious band. We always wanted to sell our performances like we did with our debut.
RM
Learning that someone is gay, queer, trans, doesn’t tell you much by itself. They could be any kind of person aside from that particular slice of identity.
Ezra Furman
We are living in a world of fear. The life of man today is corroded and made bitter by fear: fear of the future, fear of the hydrogen bomb, fear of ideologies. Perhaps this fear is a greater danger than the danger itself because it is fear, which drives men to act thoughtlessly, to act dangerously.
Sukarno
As the humanities and liberal arts are downsized, privatized, and commodified, higher education finds itself caught in the paradox of claiming to invest in the future of young people while offering them few intellectual, civic, and moral supports.
Henry Giroux
I do have a blurred memory of sitting on the stairs and

I do have a blurred memory of sitting on the stairs and trying over and over again to tie one of my shoelaces, but that is all that comes back to me of school itself.
Roald Dahl
Only that thing is free which exists by the necessities of its own nature, and is determined in its actions by itself alone.
Baruch Spinoza
Our behavior toward each other is the strangest, most unpredictable, and most unaccountable of all the phenomena with which we are obliged to live. In all of nature, there is nothing so threatening to humanity as humanity itself.
Lewis Thomas
Here, everything is tragic through and through, and the will, that fain would shape a world according to its wish, at last can reach no greater satisfaction than the breaking of itself in dignified annulment.
Richard Wagner
The man for me is the cherry on the pie. But I’m the pie and my pie is good all by itself. Even if I don’t have a cherry.
Halle Berry
For years, we have had many coaches in football, but there are no teachers anymore. And you see that in the play itself.
Johan Cruyff
As a young girl, I loved having stories read to me. There is something magical about narration and voiceovers. Recording a voiceover is an art form in itself.
Michelle Phan
A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.
Ariel Durant
Style is that which indicates how the writer takes himself and what he is saying. It is the mind skating circles around itself as it moves forward.
Robert Frost
The first robot in Neom will be Neom itself.
Mohammad bin Salman
For me, feminism is a movement for which the end goal is to make itself no longer needed.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
ESPN takes itself very seriously, but for some reason, I’m allowed to be the court jester.
Frank Caliendo
I know what I’m capable of doing. I just want to stay fit and healthy and let my football take care of itself.
Aaron Ramsey
Teachers need to be more inspirational. But it’s also up to engineering to make itself more interesting.
Bruce Dickinson
The Tea Party movement itself is maybe 15, 20 percent of the electorate. It’s relatively affluent, white, nativist. You know, it has rather traditional nativist streaks to it. But what is much more important, I think, is the – is its outrage.
Noam Chomsky
The United States Constitution has proved itself the most marvelously elastic compilation of rules of government ever written.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and truly become philosophers, and political power and philosophy thus come into the same hands.
Plato
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
Khalil Gibran
Habit is a second nature that destroys the first. But what is nature? Why is habit not natural? I am very much afraid that nature itself is only a first habit, just as habit is a second nature.
Blaise Pascal
I dream of an Africa which is in peace with itself.
Nelson Mandela
The Analytical Engine has no pretensions whatever to originate anything. It can do whatever we know how to order it to perform… But it is likely to exert an indirect and reciprocal influence on science itself.
Ada Lovelace
When modern physics exerts itself to establish the world’s formula, what occurs thereby is this: the being of entities has resolved itself into the method of the totally calculable.
Martin Heidegger
The problem of burgeoning population can be addressed if we begin with women itself. And, we need to educate them and spread awareness about birth control and family planning through TV channels and newspapers.
Geeta Phogat
The giving of love is an education in itself.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Sometimes history repeats itself. And sometimes it doesn’t.
Adam Curtis
What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realizes itself.
Anna Jameson
Music is something that should speak for itself, straight from the heart. It took me a long time to understand that.
Damon Albarn
Multi-tasking arises out of distraction itself.
Marilyn vos Savant
I think that cancer is a life form that exists out there, and it exists in us. I think even the concept of healing is a spiritual principle that we have to really look at. I think the word itself is something we ought to get rid of, because it implies that there is illness – that there is something wrong.
Wayne Dyer
In the final analysis, the questions of why bad things happen to good people transmutes itself into some very different questions, no longer asking why something happened, but asking how we will respond, what we intend to do now that it happened.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
When a place advertises itself as ‘World Famous,’ you may be sure it isn’t.
Herb Caen
I am rediscovering the whole sexual dimension of life a

I am rediscovering the whole sexual dimension of life at the age of 86, really. And that also means discovering the feminine. So the whole of this dimension, which I had been seeking for a very long time, is now sort of opening itself up to me.
Bede Griffiths
Venice is eternity itself.
Joseph Brodsky
Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches.
Steve Ballmer
A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant – rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance – but it is also a color, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself.
Roberto Burle Marx
Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others.
Albert Camus
I was married for nine years before my husband and I separated and eventually divorced. Just as I’d watched my parents arguing and fighting, my son watched his parents arguing and fighting. It was like history repeating itself, and I felt terrible about him having to witness that.
Regina King
There is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself.
Herman Melville
Every two years the American politics industry fills the airwaves with the most virulent, scurrilous, wall-to-wall character assassination of nearly every political practitioner in the country – and then declares itself puzzled that America has lost trust in its politicians.
Charles Krauthammer
I would say ‘The Chill’ by Ross Macdonald is sort of a prototypical example of how the private detective genre elevates itself to the level of literature.
Shane Black
The fabled musk deer searches the world over for the source of the scent which comes from itself.
Ramakrishna
Language has no independent existence apart from the people who use it. It is not an end in itself; it is a means to an end of understanding who you are and what society is like.
David Crystal
Taught from infancy that beauty is woman’s sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison.
Mary Wollstonecraft
From time to time, you have seminal personalities who really change the way the world sees itself – people like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela. Warren Buffett is that kind of person in the business world.
Guy Spier
The Heaneys were aristocrats, in the sense that they took for granted a code of behavior that was given and unspoken. Argumentation, persuasion, speech itself, for God’s sake, just seemed otiose and superfluous to them.
Seamus Heaney
My own view is that being a vegetarian or vegan is not an end in itself, but a means towards reducing both human and animal suffering and leaving a habitable planet to future generations.
Peter Singer
The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism.
George Washington
The ability to express an idea is well nigh as important as the idea itself.
Bernard Baruch
For age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Gossip is just news running ahead of itself in a red satin dress.
Liz Smith
Baseball is a slow, boring, complex, cerebral game that doesn’t lend itself to histrionics. You ‘take in’ a baseball game, something odd to say about a football or basketball game, with the clock running and the bodies flying.
Charles Krauthammer
The mind itself is of the form of all, i.e., of soul, God and world; when it becomes of the form of the Self through knowledge, there is release, which is of the nature of Brahman: this is the teaching.
Ramana Maharshi
You have to go through the falling down in order to learn to walk. It helps to know that you can survive it. That’s an education in itself.
Carol Burnett
People in the United Kingdom and outside the United States share my bemusement with the United States that America doesn’t share with itself.
Bill Hicks
On this day there was soon wind enough and to spare. The same might have been said of the sea. The Spray was in the midst of the turbulent Gulf Stream itself. She was jumping like a porpoise over the uneasy waves.
Joshua Slocum
Dance has helped me with everything. It was a great foundation for discipline, hard work and, unfortunately, the ever-elusive idea of perfection. It lends itself easily to fight choreography, because that’s what it really is. Choreography. And knowing how to move with someone.
Keri Russell
In any finite region of space, matter can only arrange itself in a finite number of configurations, just as a deck of cards can be arranged in only finitely many different orders. If you shuffle the deck infinitely many times, the card orderings must necessarily repeat.
Brian Greene
The fact of the matter is that the most unexpected and miraculous thing in my life was the arrival in it of poetry itself – as a vocation and an elevation almost.
Seamus Heaney
Our body is a machine for living. It is organized for that, it is its nature. Let life go on in it unhindered and let it defend itself.
Leo Tolstoy
Compassion, in which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself to mankind.
Albert Schweitzer
A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The world began without man, and it will complete itself without him.
Claude Levi-Strauss
Along with the lazy man... the dying man is the immoral

Along with the lazy man… the dying man is the immoral man: the former, a subject that does not work; the latter, an object that no longer even makes itself available to be worked on by others.
Michel De Certeau
Those who have virtue always in their mouths, and neglect it in practice, are like a harp, which emits a sound pleasing to others, while itself is insensible of the music.
Diogenes
A Jew without Jews, without Judaism, without Zionism, without Jewishness, without a temple or an army or even a pistol, a Jew clearly without a home, just the object itself, like a glass or an apple.
Philip Roth
Self-will in the man who does not reckon wisely is by itself the weakest of all things.
Aeschylus
It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story.
Agatha Christie
I consider that all which lives must feed itself and nourish itself in a manner suitable to the way in which it lives.
Giordano Bruno
Your entire life only happens in this moment. The present moment is life itself. Yet, people live as if the opposite were true and treat the present moment as a stepping stone to the next moment – a means to an end.
Eckhart Tolle
Grow your tree of falsehood from a small grain of truth. Do not follow those who lie in contempt of reality. Let your lie be even more logical than the truth itself, so the weary travelers may find repose.
Czeslaw Milosz
There’s never been a doctor who served many patients who, despite their best efforts, did not lose some of them to death. But they understood that was part of life itself.
Zig Ziglar
All is connected… no one thing can change by itself.
Paul Hawken
Adventure is worthwhile in itself.
Amelia Earhart
Nobody has ever before asked the nuclear family to live all by itself in a box the way we do. With no relatives, no support, we’ve put it in an impossible situation.
Margaret Mead
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Robert Collier
Great ability develops and reveals itself increasingly with every new assignment.
Baltasar Gracian
No country without an atom bomb could properly consider itself independent.
Charles de Gaulle
But you know, the system almost destroyed itself while it was goin’ on trying to destroy us.
Waylon Jennings
Reason is the life of the law; nay, the common law itself is nothing else but reason – the law which is perfection of reason.
Edward Coke
Idleness of the mind is much worse than that of the body: wit, without employment, is a disease – the rust of the soul, a plague, a hell itself.
Samuel Smiles
The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him and sells itself.
Peter Drucker
The plunder of black communities is not a bump along the road, but it is, in fact, the road itself that you can’t have in America without enslavement, without Jim Crow, terrorism, everything that came after that.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
Love is an energy which exists of itself. It is its own value.
Thornton Wilder
It is a very serious consideration for a lyricist to step in there and suggest the meaning to a song. The music is speaking for itself.
Al Jarreau
People in the U.K. share my bemusement with the United States that America doesn’t share with itself. They have a sense of irony, which America doesn’t have, seeing as it’s being run by fundamentalists who take things literally.
Bill Hicks
Childhood itself is scarcely more lovely than a cheerful, kindly, sunshiny old age.
Lydia M. Child
Every society needs to examine itself in relation to other societies.
Paulo Freire
The deaf community is hungry to see itself in the most positive way.
Lupe Ontiveros
A campaign is a complex organism that requires expensive parts. Finding the right parts and meshing them together into a cohesive working unit is an art in and of itself.
Peter Navarro
It is not necessary that you leave the house. Remain at your table and listen. Do not even listen, only wait. Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone. The world will present itself to you for its unmasking, it can do no other, in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet.
Franz Kafka
Life itself is a quotation.
Jorge Luis Borges
In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself.
Alexander Hamilton
Life… It tends to respond to our outlook, to shape itself to meet our expectations.
Richard M. DeVos
Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an

Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.
Eric Holder
Each moment is defined by a multitude of histories, the past constantly converging upon us, perpetually decaying and reforming itself on the steady pulse of now, now, now, now.
Dee Rees
I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
D. H. Lawrence
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.
William Blake
We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia; that’s what’s happening. Too many people there. They can’t support themselves – and it’s not an inhuman thing to say. It’s the case. Until humanity manages to sort itself out and get a coordinated view about the planet it’s going to get worse and worse.
David Attenborough
In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.
Laurence Sterne
I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.
Billy Joel
What matters is this: Being fearless of failure arms you to break the rules. In doing so, you may change the culture and just possibly, for a moment, change life itself.
Malcolm Mclaren
I can love a person in this life only insofar as he tries to advance in the praise and service of God our Lord; for the man who loves anything for itself and not for the sake of God, does not love God with his whole heart.
Saint Ignatius
A garden is to be a world unto itself, it had better make room for the darker shades of feeling as well as the sunny ones.
William Kent
If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.
John Oates
No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!
Ronald Reagan
The scientist is a lover of truth for the very love of truth itself, wherever it may lead.
Luther Burbank
The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.
Alexander Hamilton
A country that cannot feed itself cannot have self-pride, and in the mid-’60s 20 percent of all the wheat produced in America came into India. We were agriculturally a basket case. And 15 years later, 20 years later, we have become an agricultural power. This is the famous Green Revolution.
Jairam Ramesh
Singing in Gaelic is very, very natural to do. I think lends itself very much so to being sung.
Enya
Life is an end in itself, and the only question as to whether it is worth living is whether you have had enough of it.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Never explain what you do. It speaks for itself. You only muddle it by talking about it.
Shel Silverstein
A beautiful print is a thing in itself, not just a halfway house on the way to the page.
Irving Penn
Football in itself is a grand game for developing a lad physically and also morally, for he learns to play with good temper and unselfishness, to play in his place and ‘play the game,’ and these are the best of training for any game of life.
Robert Baden-Powell
Brazil has rediscovered itself, and this rediscovery is being expressed in its people’s enthusiasm and their desire to mobilize to face the huge problems that lie ahead of us.
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva
We are one people; we are only family. And when we finally accept these truths, then we will be able to fulfill Dr. King’s dream to build a beloved community, a nation, and a world at peace with itself.
John Lewis
Power is no blessing in itself, except when it is used to protect the innocent.
Jonathan Swift
Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.
Pearl S. Buck
The Chinese art world does not exist. In a society that restricts individual freedoms and violates human rights, anything that calls itself creative or independent is a pretence. It is impossible for a totalitarian society to create anything with passion and imagination.
Ai Weiwei
Most people think when the world gets itself together, we’ll all be okay. I don’t see that situation arriving. I think one by one, we all free ourselves from the chains we have chained ourselves to. But I don’t think that suddenly some magic happens and the whole lot of us will all be liberated in one throw.
George Harrison
Culture is the intersection of people and life itself. It’s how we deal with life, love, death, birth, disappointment… all of that is expressed in culture.
Wendell Pierce
For not only every democracy, but certainly every republic, bears within itself the seeds of its own destruction.
Robert W. Welch, Jr.
New technology is not good or evil in and of itself. It’s all about how people choose to use it.
David Wong
Climate change, in some regions, has aggravated conflict over scarce land, and could well trigger large-scale migration in the decades ahead. And rising sea levels put at risk the very survival of all small island states. These and other implications for peace and security have implications for the United Nations itself.
Ban Ki-moon
But every historical statement and legitimization itself moves within a certain relation to history.
Martin Heidegger
Revenge is barren of itself: it is the dreadful food it

Revenge is barren of itself: it is the dreadful food it feeds on; its delight is murder, and its end is despair.
Friedrich Schiller
What is good? All that heightens the feeling of power, the will to power, power itself in man.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.
Barack Obama
There is no such thing as perpetual tranquillity of mind while we live here; because life itself is but motion, and can never be without desire, nor without fear, no more than without sense.
Thomas Hobbes
As an outside; don’t worry about failure, because failure will take care of itself. Focus on success.
Henry Cavill
The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.
Rene Magritte
Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility; for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible.
Thomas a Kempis
When ye are prepared for a thing, the opportunity to use it presents itself.
Edgar Cayce
The bone marrow transplant procedure itself can be dangerous, but it is swift, which makes it feel strangely anti-climactic.
Suleika Jaouad
Life creates itself in delirium and is undone in ennui.
Emil Cioran
For in itself a thought, a slumbering thought, is capable of years, and curdles a long life into one hour.
Lord Byron
Theosophy has no code of morals, being itself the embodiment of the highest morality; it presents to its students the highest moral teachings of all religions, gathering the most fragrant blossoms from the gardens of the world-faiths.
Annie Besant
Nowhere else in history has there ever been a flag that stands for the right to burn itself. This is the fractal of our flag. It stands for the right to destroy itself.
Ken Kesey
I like Copenhagen, just because my shows there have been really good for some reason. Not that I love the city itself, but every time I play there it feels amazing. Pretty nice people there.
Phil Elverum
In a way, the whole tangible universe itself is a vast residue, a skeleton of countless lives that have germinated in it and have left it, leaving behind them only a trifling, infinitesimal part of their riches.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.
John Dalberg-Acton
It is the nature of the self to manifest itself, In every atom slumbers the might of the self.
Muhammad Iqbal
Religious persecution may shield itself under the guise of a mistaken and over-zealous piety.
Edmund Burke
In war, whichever side may call itself the victor, there are no winners, but all are losers.
Neville Chamberlain
My fear was not of death itself, but a death without meaning.
Huey Newton
People quit on jobs. They quit on marriages. They quit on school. There’s an immediacy of this day and age that doesn’t lend itself to being committed to anything.
Emily Blunt
Belgium is modernizing itself and it gives me joy.
Albert II of Belgium
Though ambition in itself is a vice, it often is also the parent of virtue.
Hosea Ballou
Corruption is rife in the Muslim world, and when it is coupled with the marginalization of religion, it manifests itself as frustration and becomes a fertile recruiting ground for extremism.
Hamza Yusuf
Time itself comes in drops.
William James
It is right and necessary that all should have work to do which shall be worth doing and be of itself pleasant to do, and which should be done under such conditions as would make it neither over-wearisome nor over-anxious.
William Morris
If a great opportunity opens itself up, I would love to be involved… or star in a movie.
LeBron James
The skyscraper establishes the block, the block creates the street, the street offers itself to man.
Roland Barthes
The facts fairly and honestly presented; truth will take care of itself.
William Allen White
An intense anticipation itself transforms possibility into reality; our desires being often but precursors of the things which we are capable of performing.
Samuel Smiles
When somebody takes a child from their native culture, that is in itself an act of aggression.
Lemn Sissay
I conclude, therefore, that this star is not some kind

I conclude, therefore, that this star is not some kind of comet or a fiery meteor… but that it is a star shining in the firmament itself one that has never previously been seen before our time, in any age since the beginning of the world.
Tycho Brahe
With manga, in my art style, I don’t do much in the way of techniques to create depth. But even though I don’t do depth techniques through my art, I am conscious of depth itself.
Akira Toriyama
A third force, developing itself more slowly, becomes even more potent than the rest: the power of gold.
John Lothrop Motley
True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.
Honore de Balzac
I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.
Henry David Thoreau
Obstinacy is the result of the will forcing itself into the place of the intellect.
Arthur Schopenhauer
