There is nothing better than to love oneself.

I have two doubts ,kindly clear them.

1.Is the above written sentence grammatically correct?
2.Is there any better way to convey the intended meaning?

In my opinion, the sentence is gramatically correct and conveys the intended meaning with clarity and precision. Good job! Applause

You can also say : "There is nothing better than loving oneself".

Both sentences are perfect to convey the intended meaning.

I think it's 'One's self' instead of 'oneself', but I am not very sure.

It is pretty good, but there is one issue. The word 'better'. Better how? Better for whom? For your spiritual growth, to enable you to love others - or just to be an insufferably selfish person? (Not a good thing).

A lot of writers have said this in lot of different ways, and I am sure people will understand this - it is grammatically correct (sorry violet, it is 'to love oneself, yourself). So I am being really picky when I say that I find 'better' to be a bit off. So feel free to ignore this.
