    Self-love quotes by:    

It is this unquiet self-love that renders us so sensitive. The sick man, who sleeps ill, thinks the night long. We exaggerate, from cowardice, all the evils which we encounter; they are great, but our sensibility increases them.

    Author: Francois Fenelon

Supreme and abiding self-love is a very dwarfish affection, but a giant evil.

    Author: Richard Cecil

Oh, thrice fools are we, who like new-born princes weeping in the cradle, know not that there is a kingdom before them; then, let our Lord's sweet hand square us, and hammer us, and strike off the knots of pride, self-love, and world-worship, and infidelity, that He may make us stones and pillars in His Father's house.

    Author: Samuel Rutherford

God's people must not love their soul life even to the point of death. Unless self-love or self-pity is committed to the cross they shall surely be defeated by the adversary.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Self-pity, self-love, fear of suffering, withdrawal from the cross: these are some of the manifestations of the soul life, for its prime motivation is the self-preservation. It is exceedingly reluctant to endure any loss.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The labor of self-love is a heavy one indeed. Think whether much of your sorrow has not arisen from someone speaking slightingly of you. As long as you set yourself up as a little god to which you must be loyal, how can you hope to find inward peace.

    Author: A.W. Tozer

The pampering of the flesh, is the quenching of God's spirit.

    Author: Thomas Watson

Those who think too much of themselves don't think enough.

    Author: Amy Carmichael

God, harden me against myself!

    Author: Amy Carmichael

There is an old joke that went around - it goes, in the beginning God made man in His own image, and since the fall, man has been seeking to return the compliment.

    Author: Alistair Begg

We have within us a self that has its poison from Satan--from hell--and yet we cherish and nourish it. What do we not do to please self and nourish self--and we make the devil within us strong. ... Look at your own life. What are the works of hell? They are chiefly these three: self-will, self-trust, and self-exaltation.

    Author: Andrew Murray

He who begins by seeking God within himself may end by confusing himself with God.

    Author: B.B. Warfield
