The man who is aware of himself is henceforward independent; and he is never bored, and life is only too short, and he is steeped through and through with a profound yet temperate happiness.

You'd better consult your lawyer before cracking yourself open... Or at least try to start with small things, very small things.

This is why politicians can not be counted as real human beings. They are avatars, and as avatars they see false themselves, see false reality. But nevertheless they can say truth about other politicians. It is their only useful feature.

Great quote indeed Mrs. Woolf. Just be nice or leave as you implied; My master Socrates used to say that we should never lead a life not subjected to examination! Really, the world loves talent but pays off on character.

The Five Levels of Truth-Telling:
First, you tell the truth to yourself about yourself.
Then you tell the truth to yourself about another.
At the third level, you tell the truth about yourself to another.
Then you tell your truth about another to that other.
And finally, you tell the truth to everyone about everything.

Ahí radica la capacidad de autoconocimiento y la aceptación humilde de nuestras debilidades, así como de nuestras fortalezas, pero suele ser más sencillo sólo mirar y juzgar a otros.

If you cannot tell the truth about yourself--that's understandable.
But you ought not subject others to your truth--that would be damnable.
