[ Also see Boasting Ego Narcissism Personality Pride Self-love Self-praise Self-righteousness Snobs ]

If the egotist is weak, his egotism is worthless. If the egotist is strong, acute, full of distinctive character, his egotism is precious, and remains a possession of the race.
      - Alexander Smith

Every man, like Narcissus, becomes enamored of the reflection of himself, only choosing a substance instead of a shadow. This love for any particular woman is self-love at second hand, vanity reflected, compound egotism.
      - Horace (Horatio) Smith (a/k/a Paul Chatfield)

I shall never apologize to you for egotism. I think very few men writing to their friends have enough of it.
      - Sydney Smith

The egotism of woman is always for two.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

Men are egotists, and not all tolerant of one man's selfhood; they do not always deem the amities elective.
      - Edmund Clarence Stedman

There is a serious and resolute egotism that makes a man interesting to his friends and formidable to his opponents.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Egotism is more like an offense, than a crime; though it is allowable to speak of yourself, provided nothing is advanced in favor; but I cannot help suspecting that those who abuse themselves are, in reality, angling for approbation.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann

The more you speak of yourself, the more you are likely to lie.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
