#egoism

Read through the most famous quotes by topic #egoism




The subsistence mentality of a person is a prison in which his personal joy is detained. If you want to live in joy, you don't live for yourself alone. Live for others too!


Israelmore Ayivor

Every man of action has a strong dose of egoism, pride, hardness, and cunning. But all those things will be regarded as high qualities if he can make them the means to achieve great ends.


Giorgos Seferis

Declare your jihad on thirteen enemies you cannot see -egoism, arrogance, conceit, selfishness, greed, lust, intolerance, anger, lying, cheating, gossiping and slandering. If you can master and destroy them, then you will be read to fight the enemy you can see.


Al-Ghazali

The social system of capital separates most people from the conditions of existence. This compels the vast majority to accept the mediations of work and commodity consumption in order to maintain a minimal existence at the expense of their lives, desires and dreams, of their individuality. The artificial economic scarcity imposed by capital leads to a competition that is often promoted in the United States as the basis of "individualism" in spite of the fact that it creates nearly identical mediocre existences in which life is subsumed in survival... If all individuals are indeed to be free to create their lives and relations as they desire, it is necessary to create a world in which equality of access to the means and conditions of existence is reality. This requires the total destruction of economy—the end of property, commodity exchange and work. Thus we see that the generalized realization of individual freedom goes hand-in-hands with the best aspects of the anarcho-communist ideal and can only be achieved through a revolutionary transformation.


Wolfi Landstreicher Individualism and Communism

...only the one who knows and practices the iconoclastic fury of destruction can possess the joy born of freedom, of that unique freedom fertilized by sorrow. I rise up against the reality of the outer world for the triumph of the reality of my inner world. I reject society for the triumph of the I. I reject the stability of every rule, every custom, every morality, for the affirmation of every willful instinct, all free emotionality, every passion and every fantasy. I mock at every duty and every right so I can sing free will. I scorn the future to suffer and enjoy my good and my bad in the present. I despise humanity because it is not my humanity. I hate tyrants and I detest slaves. I don't want and I don't grant solidarity, because I am convinced that it is a new chain, and because I believe with Ibsen that the one who is most alone is the strongest one. This is my Nihilism.


Renzo Novatore

Political liberty,” what are we to understand by that? Perhaps the individual’s independence of the State and its laws? No; on the contrary, the individual’s subjection in the State and to the State’s laws... Political liberty means that the polis, the State, is free; freedom of religion that religion is free, as freedom of conscience signifies that conscience is free; not, therefore, that I am free from the State, from religion, from conscience, or that I am rid of them. It does not mean my liberty, but the liberty of a power that rules and subjugates me; it means that one of my despots, like State, religion, conscience, is free. State, religion, conscience, these despots, make me a slave, and their liberty is my slavery.


Max Stirner

The whole human race is running after God, though they are not aware of it. A man is born to become God and it is an innate urge but he can hardly understand it. His egoism or ‘I’-ness is the impediment to the evolution of the life-power to get transformed into God. If this ‘I’-ness is effaced then automatic transformation of life-power takes place. It is His life-power reaching the cerebrum which is transformed into God and nothing else. If this transformation is to come, it comes from within and nowhere in the four quarters of the globe, it is to be had.


sri jibankrishna or Diamond

It is precisely the essential feature of egoism that it does not apprehend the full value of the isolated self. The egoist sees himself only with regard to the others, as a member of society who wishes to possess and acquire more than the others. Self-directedness or other-directedness have no essential bearing on the specific quality of love or hatred. These acts are different in themselves, quite independently of their direction


Max Scheler

Х- Какво е любовен егоизъм? Y- Да си пълен егоист и да обичаш друг пълен егоист. Х - Ама това е невъзможно. Егоизмът означава само себелюбие. Y - Как да не е възможно?! За мен любовта е движеща креативна енергия, много по-силна от силата на егоизма. Ще я подхраня с още една доза егоизъм и дори ще прибавя утилитаризъм. Х - Ама как така? Любовта никога не може да бъде планувана. Y - Забрави да напишеш "краткотрайната". Забрави да кажеш и, че любовта е субективна. Аз обичам по един начин, мен ме обичат по друг. Какво нещо са думичките, а...?! Х - Не знам. Y - И аз. Затова ме обичай. X - Ама ти си голям егоист... Y - Затова те обичам.

One altar forever is preserved, that whereon we burn incense to the supreme idol,--ourselves, our god is great, and money is his Prophet! We devastate nature in order to make sacrifice to him; we boast that we have conquered Matter and forget that it is matter that has forever enslaved us.
