Alaric Hutchinson
“On the road to success there is absolutely no room for criticism of self or others. Insecurity and fear masquerade as jealousy and judgment. Finding faults in others wastes time as we attempt to remove the bricks from other people’s foundations – time that could be better spent building our own. And worrying about what other people think about us also wastes the time that could be better spent expanding upon what we have built.”

Julian Barnes
“Когда я был моложе, я получал то, что мне было положено. Казалось, в этом и состоит жизнь. И где-то подсознательно я считал, что существует некая
система высшей справедливости. Но ее нет. Или если и есть, то не для таких, как я. И возможно не для таких, как вы. Если мы получаем лишь то, что нам причитается, то мы получаем немного, ведь так?
И все дело в том, чего ты хочешь, разве нет? Когда я был моложе, я притворялся, что хочу, или действительно думал, что хочу, множество вещей, просто потому, что этого же хотели другие. Я не утверждаю, что стал старше и мудрее - ну хорошо, лишь чуть-чуть, - но сейчас я знаю, чего хочу и не теряю времени на то, чего я не хочу.
И если вы отвечаете за себя, то не стоит переживать по поводу того, что кто-то еще чего-то хочет. Потому что это тоже отнимает много времени.”
Julian Barnes, Love, Etc.

Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets

Alain Finkielkraut, La Sagesse de l'amour

“What’s insidious about the fear of what others will say is that you rarely hear them say it. You imagine what they’d say. You imagine they care that much about you. The fragility of our own egos gets the better of us”
Jeff Jarvis, Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age is Revolutionizing Life, Business, and Society

Elizabeth Bowen
“But a man must live. Not for nothing do we invest so much of ourselves in other people's lives—or even in momentary pictures of people we do not know. It cuts both ways: the happy group inside the lighted window, the figure in long grass in the orchard seen from the train stay and support us in our dark hours. Illusions are art, for the feeling person, and it is by art that we live, if we do.”
Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart

Elizabeth Bowen
“But here I do see how everyone feels."

Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart
