Ego Quotes

The more we try to wrest ourselves from our ego, the deeper we sink into it.

Emil Cioran

Ego & Hype have no place in business.

Keshia Chante

Every autobiography is concerned with two characters, a Don Quixote, the Ego, and a Sancho Panza, the Self.

W. H. Auden

The body is dust; the wind speaks through it. Understand, O wise one, who has died. Awareness, conflict and ego have died, but the One who sees does not die.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

The pursuit of beauty is much more dangerous nonsense than the pursuit of truth or goodness, because it affords a stronger temptation to the ego.

Northrop Frye

Anytime there is a struggle between doing what is actually right and doing what seems right, then your ego is interfering with your decision.

Darren L. Johnson

You can have all ego, or all non-ego, but in theory you cannot have half one and half the other yet in practice this is exactly what you must have, for everything is both itself and not itself at one and the same time.

Samuel Butler

You ever notice the first thing someone says when they can't find something is that it was stolen? They say "who stole it?!". It's an ego defense. They can't stand the fact that they might have been stupid enough to have lost something.

George Denis Patrick Carlin

The capacity for self-deception, rarely acknowledged or understood by those who offer us supernatural answers to our problems, is huge: as easy as it is to make a mediums cold-reading statements fit our own situation and come to believe that he must have some paranormal insight, it is hardly any more difficult for a would-be psychic with an average ego, upon hearing frequently positive feedback, to believe over time that he must be blessed with a special gift. Its harder to think youre doing it for real when youre tossing tambourines in the dark or have ready-made ectoplasm stuffed into your mouth or bottom.

Derren Victor Brown

We were all born within a mile of each other. All born in the same town. So weve always shared the same influences, the same language, basically, and that makes us very close. Theres no ego involved. When we formed the band, it wasnt like, oh, I want to be the singer, or I want to be the guitarist, or I want to write the lyrics, we just found what we could do, we found what we were best at.

James Dean Bradfield

All works are being done by the energy and power of nature, but due to delusion of ego people assume themselves to be the doer.

Bhagavad Gita

When your mind becomes fixed on Me, you shall overcome all difficulties by My grace. But, if you do not listen to Me due to ego, you shall perish.

Bhagavad Gita

The world is burning in the fire of desire, in greed, arrogance and excessive ego.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Let's face it; God has a big ego problem. Why do we always have to worship him?

Bill Maher

Ego has a voracious appetite, the more you feed it, the hungrier it gets.
