The Queen of My Self

The Queen of My Self

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
