It is always the secure who are humble.

G. K. Chesterton

An attitude of superiority often conceals a feeling of inferiority.

Exaggerated sensitiveness is an expression of the feeling of inferiority.

Alfred Adler

The great consolation in life is to say what one thinks.


Self-expression is the dominant necessity of human nature.

Dale Carnegie

I’m exhausted from not talking.

Sam Goldwyn

I dislike arguments of any kind. They are always vulgar, and often convincing.

Oscar Wilde

Many people like their beliefs, opinions and prejudices more than they like reason.

There is a certain amount of trauma involved in changing any long-held belief.

Never try to reason the prejudice out of a man. It was not reasoned into him, and cannot be reasoned out.

Sydney Smith

A man has his beliefs: his arguments are only his excuses for them...we only see what we look at: our attention to our temperamental convictions blind us to all the facts that tell against us.

George Bernard Shaw

People only see what they are prepared to see.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

What ardently we wish, we soon believe.

Edward Young

People believe lies, not because they are plausibly presented, but because they want to believe them. So, their credulity is unshakeable.

Malcolm Muggeridge

It’s not a controversial proposition that people tend to believe what they want, and that the strength of their conviction is usually proportional to their self-interest.

Men will always be mad and those who think they can cure them are the maddest of all.


It is folly to expect people to do all that you would reasonably expect them to do.

Reformers have the idea that change can be achieved by brute sanity.

George Bernard Shaw

I said it years ago, I didn't get into recovery to be miserable,

be told forever what to say and do,

not be able to live a serene and responsible life.
