“It is impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement — that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.”
Sigmund Freud, Civilization and Its Discontents

Michael Bassey Johnson
“People will walk in and walk out of your life, but the one whose footstep made a long lasting impression is the one you should never allow to walk out.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Here too it’s masquerade, I find:
As everywhere, the dance of mind.
I grasped a lovely masked procession,
And caught things from a horror show…
I’d gladly settle for a false impression,
If it would last a little longer, though.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't pretend to be what you're not, instead, pretend to what you want to be, it is not pretence, it is a journey to self realization.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Louise Dickinson Rich
“There is nothing that I so greatly admire as purposefulness. I have an enormous respect for people who know exactly what they are doing and where they are going. Such people are compact and integrated. They have clear edges. They give an impression of invulnerability and balance, and I wish I were one of them.”
Louise Dickinson Rich

Alexandre Dumas
“Can we account for instinct?' said Monte Cristo. 'Are there not some places where we seem to breathe sadness? — why, we cannot tell. It is a chain of recollections — an idea which carries you back to other times, to other places — which, very likely, have no connection with the present time and place.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Michael Bassey Johnson
“The more you try to impress, the more you become depressed, and the more they get tired of your coercion. It doesn't make them love you, instead, they'll see you as a little child, trying to draw a senseless picture on a piece of paper, begging people to look at it and admire it by force. You can persuade someone to look at your face, but you can't persuade them to see the beauty therein.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Jodi Picoult
“When I first met Cara, she was twelve and angry at the world. Her parents had split up, her brother was gone, and her mom was infatuated with some guy who was missing vowels in his unpronounceable last name. So I did what any other man in that situation would do: I came armed with gifts. I bought her things that I thought a twelve-year-old would love: a poster of Taylor Lautner, a Miley Cyrus CD, nail polish that glowed in the dark. "I can't wait for the next Twilight movie," I babbled, when I presented her with the gifts in front of Georgie. "My favorite song on the CD is 'If We Were a Movie.' And I almost went with glitter nail polish, but the salesperson said this is much cooler, especially with Halloween coming up."

Cara looked at her mother and said, without any judgment, "I think your boyfriend is gay.”
Jodi Picoult, Lone Wolf

Jarod Kintz
“Before job interviews, I think: What color tie best represents me as a person this company would be interested in?”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title

Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“Knowledge of Self is very important, you can't be living in a world pretending to be someone you're not. No one will ever believe in you, when you don't have the courage to believe in yourself. You can not live to impress others solely not giving thought to express your true being. No one wants to interact with a pretender, a fake, a wannabe.”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana, Sweet Destiny

Thomas Hardy
“A novel is an impression, not an argument; and there the matter must rest.”
Thomas Hardy

Jarod Kintz
“Your impression of me is different than my impression of me. But that’s OK, because your impression is impressionistic, like a Monet painting, while mine is realistic, like a Rembrandt.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

Jarod Kintz
“Some events in your life leave a lasting impression. A thing that majorly impacted my life was the car that hit me when I was 11.”
Jarod Kintz, At even one penny, this book would be overpriced. In fact, free is too expensive, because you'd still waste time by reading it.

Joseph Joubert
“The soul paints itself in our machines.”
Joseph Joubert, The Notebooks of Joseph Joubert

Bryant McGill
“The outer world is a reflection of our inner selves.”
Bryant McGill

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't try to impress a loser because If one is not happy about the things happening in their life, one cannot be happy about the things happening in someone else's life.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

“A woman being able to make a man genuinely laugh leaves a much better impression on him than a woman who wants them to feel like she is nothing more than a sex object… believe me, they tend to not be as picky as you might think when it comes to that.”
Heather Chapple, Write like no one is reading

“Extravagant sartorial display had a purpose. It created the impression of wealth and power on the opponent and pride in the wearer which has been lost sight of in our nervously egalitarian times.”
Barbara W. Tuchman, The First Salute

Israelmore Ayivor
“Self-hatred is self-imprisonment. Self-forgiveness is self-liberation. You have the right to suppress yourself, oppress yourself and depress yourself. You have the right to impress yourself too. Feel happy!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Israelmore Ayivor
“How often you impress people when you have nothing and how often you oppress them when you have everything is what defines your real character!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365
