Erich Fromm
“The main condition for the achievement of love is the overcoming of one's narcissism. The narcissistic orientation is one in which one experiences as real only that which exists within oneself, while the phenomena in the outside world have no reality in themselves, but are experienced only from the viewpoint of their being useful or dangerous to one. The opposite pole to narcissism is objectivity; it is the faculty to see other people and things as they are, objectively, and to be able to separate this objective picture from a picture which is formed by one's desires and fears.”
Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving

Erich Fromm
“The faculty to think objectively is reason; the emotional attitude behind reason is that of humility. To be objective, to use one's reason, is possible only if one has achieved an attitude of humility, if one has emerged from the dreams of omniscience and omnipotence which one has as a child. Love, being dependent on the relative absence of narcissism, requires the developement of humility, objectivity and reason.

I must try to see the difference between my picture of a person and his behavior, as it is narcissistically distorted, and the person's reality as it exists regardless of my interests, needs and fears.”
Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving

Amit Kalantri
“A photograph shouldn't be just a picture, it should be a philosophy.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

H.P. Lovecraft
“Now all my tales are based on the fundemental premise that common human laws and interests and emotions have no validity or significance in the vast cosmos-at-large.... To achieve the essence of real externality, whether of time or space or dimension, one must forget that such things as organic life, good and evil, love and hate, and all such local attributes of a negligible and temporary race called mankind, have any existence at all.”
H.P. Lovecraft

Habeeb Akande
“The difference between greed and ambition is a greedy person desires things he isn't prepared to work for.”
Habeeb Akande

Stefan Molyneux
“When people have invested their identities into clichés, the only counter argument they have is 'being offended'.”
Stefan Molyneux

Percy Williams Bridgman
“Not only are there meaningless questions, but many of the problems with which the human intellect has tortured itself turn out to be only 'pseudo problems,' because they can be formulated only in terms of questions which are meaningless. Many of the traditional problems of philosophy, of religion, or of ethics, are of this character. Consider, for example, the problem of the freedom of the will. You maintain that you are free to take either the right- or the left-hand fork in the road. I defy you to set up a single objective criterion by which you can prove after you have made the turn that you might have made the other. The problem has no meaning in the sphere of objective activity; it only relates to my personal subjective feelings while making the decision.”
Percy Williams Bridgman, The Nature of Physical Theory

“There are two missions we are obligated to carry out during our life journey. The first, is to seek Truth throughout our lifetime. The second, is simply to be good. Engrave it in your mind that life is just one big board game where you have to make it from start to finish by being good. That is all you have to do. The hardest part, is dealing with all the obstacles that prevent smooth sailing. The trick is, to always strive to be the right person in all situations – regardless of personal cost to you. Your aim is to make sure the right book on your shoulder weighs more that the bad book on the left. The scales are real. Regardless of your chosen faith, there is a measurement system to be found in all of the world's religions. After all, does it make sense for all souls, good or bad, to end up in the same place? Of course not. To really secure the very best setting in the afterlife, the vibrations of your good deeds must surpass your death.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Before asserting a prognosis on any patient, always be objective and never subjective. For telling a man that he will win the treasure of life, but then later discovering that he will lose, will harm him more than by telling him that he may lose, but then he wins.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Joseph Deitch
“We all like to think we’re open-minded and objective when it comes to evaluating situations and people. But are we? A huge body of research in physics, biochemistry, and psychology says we’re not.”
Joseph Deitch, Elevate: An Essential Guide to Life

“The barrier to our future is often the very plans that we’ve created to get there.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“...in microphysics the observer interferes with the experiment in a way that can't be measured and that therefore can't be eliminated. No natural laws can be formulated, saying "such-and-such will happen in every case." All the microphysicist can say is "such-and-such is, according to statistical probability, likely to happen." This naturally represents a tremendous problem for our classical physical thinking. It requires a consideration, in a scientific experiment, of the mental outlook of the participant-observer: It could this be said that scientists can no longer hope to describe any aspects or qualities of outer objects in a completely independent, "objective" manner.”
M.L. von Franz

“People love it when you criticise some things which they do not believe in, practices which are contrary to what they practice or contrary views. They call you objective and truthful

But immediately you start disagreeing with their views, criticising their beliefs, expressing contrary views against what they support, they call you foul names, say you are not a child of God, ask who you are to judge.

Listen and listen good, I love writing and I write based on inspiration and experience.

I don't just write, I write to capture the minds of my readers and to spark reaction. I welcome contrary views, I love you opposing my stance cos in the process I learn some things from you.

Don't get mad at me for expressing myself via writing. I love putting things down. Learn to tolerate my views and counter me when you don't agree.

Stop holding grudges and developing unnecessary hatred. Life is too short to be closed minded and inclined. Life is too short for me to idolize anybody.

I can't always be dancing to your tunes, you also have to dance to mine.”
OMOSOHWOFA CASEY

“Assign a deadline to your biggest objectives and stick to it so they don’t become just another litany of “what ifs” and sad regrets.”

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Look down the road I’m traveling and you will see my goal; it’s there on the path. Probably closer than it appears. Life tends to roll that way.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Slaying Dragons

Roshan Sharma
“The natural life is colourless. Subjective and objective reality holds the color of life. The color to the Objective reality is added by your subjective reality. Subjective reality can add color to its own. But the source works through both the subjective and objective reality, that too is colourless.”
Roshan Sharma

Roshan Sharma
“In scientific discovery, it’s not the subject or object reveals the information to the scientist, but the awareness field of his own mind, reveals the details, at the time of deep focus on the subject or object.”
Roshan Sharma

“God’s master-plan is made up of our individual assignments whose collective objective is to impact mankind positively.”

Ana Claudia Antunes
“How I'm glad to go back home!
Once I truly have no more worry.
Many of those who are in a hurry
Endure setbacks in the outcome.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, ACross Tic

René Descartes
“...the greater objective (representative) perfection there is in our idea of a thing, the greater also must be the perfection of its cause.”
René Descartes, Principles of Philosophy

“Do you know your own narrative? Can you actually listen objectively, or when you listen are you just replaying your own narrative?”
Akiroq Brost

Siddhartha Mukherjee
“The measurement of illness, Breslow was arguing, is an inherently subjective activity: it inevitably ends up being a measure of ourselves. Objective decisions come to rest on normative ones.”
Siddhartha Mukherjee, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer
