„[I]t pretends to examine how self-absorbed we are as a culture, only to be consumed by its own self-absorption. It's also badly constructed, humorless and emotionally sadistic.“

— Stephanie Zacharek, Review http://www.salon.com/ent/movies/review/2008/01/18/cloverfield/ of Cloverfield (2008)

„It is curious how an age of public self-revelation, and of the use of psychological jargon, should also be an age when self-examination is rarely practised.“

„How can we live in this universe with a balance and with a type of perspective that keeps us going smoothly and we are not too absorbed in self?“

— Martin Luther King, Jr. American clergyman, activist, and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement 1929 - 1968
Context: Now one will inevitably raise the question: How then do we conquer self-centeredness? How do we get away from this thing that we call self-centeredness? How can we live in this universe with a balance and with a type of perspective that keeps us going smoothly and we are not too absorbed in self? How do we do it?

„I have come to understand that the self, my self, is inherently sacred. By virtue of its own improbability, its own miracle, its own emergence“

— Ursula Goodenough American biologist 1943
Context: I have come to understand that the self, my self, is inherently sacred. By virtue of its own improbability, its own miracle, its own emergence … And so I lift up my head, and I bear my own witness, with affection and tenderness and respect. And in so doing, I sanctify myself with my own grace. p. 60

„And this becomes a point of balance when you can forget yourself into immortality. You’re not so absorbed in self, but you are absorbed in something beyond self.“

— Martin Luther King, Jr. American clergyman, activist, and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement 1929 - 1968
Context: I’ve seen people who discovered a great meaning in their jobs and they became so absorbed in that that they didn’t have time to become self-centered. They loved their job. And the great prayer that anyone could pray at that point is: “O God, help me to love my job as this individual loves his or hers. O God, help me to give my self to my work and to my job and to my allegiance as this individual does.” And this is the way out. And I think this is what [Ralph Waldo] Emerson meant when he said: “O, see how the masses of men worry themselves into nameless graves, while here and there, some great unselfish soul forgets himself into immortality.” And this becomes a point of balance when you can forget yourself into immortality. You’re not so absorbed in self, but you are absorbed in something beyond self.

„The prize of individualism--its goal--is self-actualization, which is only another name for vanity. We do not admire men for achieving self-actualization; we admire self-actualization when its end result is a boon to humanity.“

— Matthew Stover American writer 1962
Context: "I respect what is repectable," Tan'elkoth replied. "To ask for respect where none has been earned is childish maundering. And what is repectable, in the end, save service? Even your idol Jefferson is, in the end, measured by how well he served the species. The prize of individualism--its goal--is self-actualization, which is only another name for vanity. We do not admire men for achieving self-actualization; we admire self-actualization when its end result is a boon to humanity." (I.3) Del Rey, p. 75

„Self-examination is the practice of becoming your truth“

— Caroline Myss author from the United States 1952
Context: Self-examination is the process of accountability to your soul... It is far better to "become" your truth than to speak your truth. Self-examination is the practice of becoming your truth. Entering the Castle : An Inner Path to God and Your Soul (2007), p. 66
