"Above all, dont lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love. And in order to distract himself without love he gives way to passions and coarse pleasures and sinks to bestiality in his vices-all this from continual lying to other men and to himself."
 
" The man who lies to himself can be more easily offended than anyone else. You know it is sometimes very pleasant to take offense, isnt it? A man may know that nobody has insulted him, but that he has invented the insult for himself, has lied and exaggerated to make it picturesque, has caught at a word and made a mountain out of a molehill-he knows that himself, yet he will be the firts to take offense, and will revel in his resentment till he feels great pleasure in it. And so he will pass to genuine vidictiveness...."
The Brothers Karmazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

"Above all, avoid falsehood, every kind of falsehood, especially falsehood to yourself.Watch over your own deceitfulness and look into it every hour, every minute. Avoid being scornful, both to others and to yourself. What seems to you bad within you will grow purer from the very fact of your observing it in yourself. Avoid fear, too, though fear is only the result of falsehood."

"With old liars who been acting all their lives there are moments when they enter so completely into their part that they tremble or shed real tears, although at that very moment or a second later, they are able to whisper to themselves, ( "You know you are lying, you shameless old sinner! You are acting in spite of your holy wrath.")."

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.

"My dear ones, why do we quarrel, try to outshine each other and keep grudges against each other? Let's go straight into the garden, walk and play there, love and appreciate each other and glorify life."

"since the whole world has long been going on a different line, since we consider the veriest lies as truth and demand the same lies from others. Here I have for once in my life acted sincerely and, well, you all look upon me as a madman. Though you are friendly to me, yet, you see, you all laugh at me."

" It is impossible that there should be no servants in the world, but act so that your servant may be freer in spirit than if he were not a servant. And why cannot I be a servant to my servant and even let him see it, and that without any pride on my part or any mistrust on his?"
