Words of Self Love

It is summer, hot and horny, and I am on a roll. So I am going to continue this theme of beauty, attraction, seduction, sex, love and self-love until I run out of content — or steam, whichever comes first.

Everything worth having costs something, and the price of true love is self-knowledge. Becoming acquainted with yourself is a price well worth paying for the love that will really address your needs.

- Daphne Rose Kingma

 

Loving yourself…does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion.

- Margo Anand

 

Life is swift and precious while it’s in our grasp. Loving yourself is such a small act of appreciation for the everlasting Love that breathed you into being and on whose wings you will be carried when it’s time to leave this life.

- Paula Reeves

 

It’s not your job to like me – it’s mine.

- Byron Katie

 

Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.

- Sophia Loren

 

I don’t like myself, I’m crazy about myself.

- Mae West

 

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.

- Lucille Ball

 

Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

- Veronica A. Shoffstall

 

Do you want to meet the love of your life? Look in the mirror.

- Byron Katie

 

If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.

- Barbara De Angelis

 

The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others.

- Sonya Friedman

 

Love yourself instead of abusing yourself.

- Karolina Kurkova

 

To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself, value yourself. And that’s political, in its most profound way.

- June Jordan

 

If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy.

- Kristin Chenoweth

 

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.

- Lucille Ball
