SELF-ESTEEM
[ Also see Self-conceit Self-love ]

He who, to be happy, needs nothing but himself, is happy.
      - Berthold Auerbach

Self esteem is the reputation we acquire with ourselves.
      - Nathaniel Branden

We censure others but as they disagree from that humor which we fancy laudable in ourselves, and commend others but for that wherein they seem to quadrate and consent with us.
      - Sir Thomas Browne

Most people with low self-esteem have earned it.
      - George Carlin

In my day, we didn't have self-esteem, we had self-respect, and no more of it than we had earned.
      - Jane Haddam

A great man la an abstraction of some one excellence; but whoever fancies himself an abstraction of excellence, so far from being great, may be sure that he is a blockhead, equally ignorant of excellence or defect of himself or others.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Every man, in judging of himself, is his own contemporary. He may feel the gale of popularity, but he cannot tell how long it will last. His opinion of himself wants distance, wants time, wants numbers, to set it off and confirm it.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Let a man's talents and virtues be what they may, we only feel satisfaction in his society as he is satisfied in himself. We cannot enjoy the good qualities of a friend if he seems to be none the better for them.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

All men who know not where to look for truth, save in the narrow well of self, will find their own image at the bottom, and mistake it for what they are seeking.
      - James Russell Lowell

I look upon, the too good opinion that man has of himself to be the nursing-mother of all the false opinions, both public and private.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Could all mankind lay claim to that estimate which they pass upon themselves, there would be little or no difference betwixt lapsed and perfect humanity; and God might again review His image with paternal complacency, and still pronounce it good.
      - John Norris of Bemerton

We are so little and vain that the esteem of five or six persons about us is enough to content and amuse us.
      - Blaise Pascal

Other people are least satisfied with those women who are best satisfied with themselves.
      - Constance Pipelet de Salm

Self-esteem is the basis of any democracy.
      - Gloria Steinem

Self-esteem isn't everything; it's just that there's nothing without it.
      - Gloria Steinem
