The Self Transcendence of Human Existence

November 16, 2010

“One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes … and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.”  – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Only to the extent that someone is living out this self transcendence of human existence, is he truly human or does he become his true self. He becomes so, not by concerning himself with his self’s actualization, but by forgetting himself and giving himself, overlooking himself and focusing outward.”  – Viktor E. Frankl

“One does not “find oneself” by pursuing one’s self, but on the contrary by pursuing something else and learning through discipline or routine … who one is and wants to be.”  – May Sarton

“The one person who most blocks you from a full, happy, and successful life is you. So if you feel empty, as many do, start by getting free from yourself as a first step to vibrant living.”  – Norman Vincent Peale

“Practice rather than preach. Make of your life an affirmation, defined by your ideals, not the negation of others. Dare to the level of your capability then go beyond to a higher level.” – Alexander Haig
