Top Self Infatuation Quotes

Self Infatuation Quotes By Renata Adler

Moral self-infatuation has its own corruptions, after all. With time, almost every other principle of the magazine acquired an ironic echo, a sort of cackling aftermath. — Renata Adler

Self Infatuation Quotes By Joan D. Chittister

Friendship is the call out of isolation and selfishness in order to teach me how to love and how to serve. But without stability, friendship - real soul-searing friendship, the kind that makes us choose between domination and infatuation and possessiveness and dependence for growth and freedom and depth and responsibility and self-knowledge - is impossible.
Stability is what enables us, in other words, to live totally in God and totally for others. — Joan D. Chittister

Self Infatuation Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

So that's it. You have now reached infatuation's fial destination - the complete and merciless devaluation of self. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Self Infatuation Quotes By Michael Bassey Johnson

Don't cry for someone who would love smiling when your tears are flowing. — Michael Bassey Johnson

Self Infatuation Quotes By Rabindranath Tagore

To try to give our infatuation a higher place than Truth is a sign of inherent slavishness. Where our minds are free we find ourselves lost. Our moribund vitality must have for its rider either some fantasy, or someone in authority, or a sanction from the pundits, in order to make it move. So long as we are
impervious to truth and have to be moved by some hypnotic stimulus, we must know that we lack the capacity for self- government. Whatever may be our condition, we shall either need some imaginary ghost or some actual medicine-man to terrorize over us. — Rabindranath Tagore

Self Infatuation Quotes By William Shakespeare

Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;
Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night ... — William Shakespeare

Self Infatuation Quotes By Chip Ingram

Unfortunately, this unexpected, internal condition has often been called "falling in love." This reaction to attraction, which we could also describe as a "chemically induced crush," is actually infatuation. Who among us has not walked into a room, made eye contact with a complete stranger, and felt an instant, unexpected rush of emotion and attraction? Who hasn't had that sudden impulse to look again? Why these moments happen and what exactly triggers them - who knows? But the feelings are definitely a temporary condition. The attraction is neither irresistible nor dependable. You can easily experience infatuation with people who would turn out to be relational nightmares. That's why it is so dangerous — Chip Ingram

Self Infatuation Quotes By Ron Koertge

OMG. He's a gift shop, a lamb kebab with mint,/a solar panel poetry machine with biceps. He's the path/through the dark woods, the light on the page, a postcard/from the castle and a one-way ticket there. He's the most/astounding arrangement of molecules ever!/Just look at those tights! An honest-to-God prince at last. — Ron Koertge

Self Infatuation Quotes By Rich Mullins

If you've ever known the love of God, you know it's nothing but reckless and it's nothing but raging. Sometimes it hurts to be loved, and if it doesn't hurt it's probably not love, may be infatuation. I think a lot of American people are infatuated with God, but we don't really love Him, and they don't really let Him love them. Being loved by God is one of the most painful things in the world, it's also the only thing that can bring us salvation and it's like everything else that is really wonderful, there's a little bit of pain in it, little bit of hurt. — Rich Mullins

Self Infatuation Quotes By Jagdish Joghee

Love is a feeling that must be felt from the heart and seen through inner beauty. Only if this was known to the youth, many a marriages would have blossomed with age and cherished through decades. Just like a plant that needs the sun, water and more time to grow into a beautiful tree with lovely leaves and flowers, love needs time to be nurtured over time, built on a strong foundation of friendship, trust and honesty. When this foundation is built and combined with the feeling that tickles you from within, that is when love actually happens, the rest is all infatuation, attraction or even lust. — Jagdish Joghee

Self Infatuation Quotes By Edgar Rice Burroughs

Only thus may we carry the truth to those without, and though the likelihood of our narrative being given credence is, I grant you, remote, so wedded are mortals to their stupid infatuation for impossible superstitions, we should be craven cowards indeed were we to shirk the plain duty which confronts us. — Edgar Rice Burroughs

Self Infatuation Quotes By Charlotte Bronte

There is, in lovers, a certain infatuation of egotism; they will have a witness of their happiness, cost that witness what it may. — Charlotte Bronte

Self Infatuation Quotes By Simone De Beauvoir

Science condemns itself to failure when, yielding to the infatuation of the serious, it aspires to attain being, to contain it, and to possess it; but it finds its truth if it considers itself as a free engagement of thought in the given, aiming, at each discovery, not at fusion with the thing, but at the possibility of new discoveries; what the mind then projects is the concrete accomplishment of its freedom. — Simone De Beauvoir

Self Infatuation Quotes By P.C. Cast

She loves him," Aphrodite blurted.
"Aphrodite!" I yelled.
"Well, someone had to clue the dorks in to your pathetic infatuation with him," Aphrodite said. — P.C. Cast

Self Infatuation Quotes By George Eliot

Men outlive their love, but they don't outlive the consequences of their recklessness. — George Eliot

Self Infatuation Quotes By P.C. Cast

And when you love someone you don't always see them realistically. — P.C. Cast

Self Infatuation Quotes By Ann Hood

love is reliable. infatuation is temporary. — Ann Hood

Self Infatuation Quotes By Chip Ingram

That's why it is so dangerous to use infatuation as a sign to pursue a relationship. If you and I don't know the difference between infatuation and love, we are destined to make some of the dumbest and most regrettable decisions we'll ever make. These bad decisions come with heavy and painful price tags. So you see, it's imperative in this tricky business of "falling in love" that we take the time to clearly define what we mean by the word "love." The investment will pay off handsomely. We can actually learn how to avoid future relational baggage and how to recognize authentic love relationships when we clarify two crucial issues: (1) what love is, and (2) what the difference is between love and infatuation. — Chip Ingram

Self Infatuation Quotes By Olivia Parker

What have I done to her?" Gabriel muttered to himself as he crossed the room to crank open a window. Cool air washed over his skin. "What the devil did she do to me? — Olivia Parker

Self Infatuation Quotes By Evelyn Waugh

He was entrancing, with that epicene beauty which in extreme youth sings aloud for love and withers at the first cold wind. — Evelyn Waugh

Self Infatuation Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

My love affair with (him) had a wonderful element of romance to it, which I will always cherish. But it was not an infatuation, and here's how I can tell: because I did not demand that he become my Great Emancipator or my Source of All Life, nor did I immediately vanish into that man's chest cavity like a twisted, unrecognizable, parasitical homonculus. During our long period of courtship, I remained intact within my own personality, and I allowed myself to meet (him) for who he was. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Self Infatuation Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

The worldly vision is filled with infinite infatuations and attachments and no one can escape from it; [hence] there is no alternative other than staying in Gnani's feet [surrendering to the enlightened one is the only alternative]. — Dada Bhagwan

Self Infatuation Quotes By Jennifer Crusie

My studies have shown that the process of falling into mature love happens in four steps. When you meet a woman, you subconsciously look for cues that she's the kind os person you should be with. That's assumption. If she passes the assumption test, you begin to get to know her to find out if she's appropriate for you. If she is, you're attracted. If, as you get to know her, the attraction is reinforced with joy or pain or both, you'll fall into infatuation. And if you manage to make a connection and attach to each other during infatuation, you'll move into mature, unconditional love. — Jennifer Crusie

Self Infatuation Quotes By Ashly Lorenzana

If somebody never gets enough of you, they will always want more — Ashly Lorenzana

Self Infatuation Quotes By Pawan Mishra

O woman, thou art my imperfection! — Pawan Mishra

Self Infatuation Quotes By Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Chasing after a guy who's not interested in you will rip the hell out of your self-respect. Better to face facts now because the longer you put it off, the harder it'll be. — Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Self Infatuation Quotes By Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Let him who cannot be alone beware of community ... Let him who is not in community beware of being alone ... Each by itself has profound perils and pitfalls. One who wants fellowship without solitude plunges into the void of words and feelings, and the one who seeks solitude without fellowship perishes in the abyss of vanity, self-infatuation and despair. — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Self Infatuation Quotes By George Eliot

Strange, that some of us, with quick alternative vision, see beyond our infatuations, and even while we rave on the heights, behold the wide plain where our persistent self pauses and awaits us. — George Eliot

Self Infatuation Quotes By Martin Amis

And quite right too. Thinking back, actually, 'self-infatuation' strikes me as a rather ill-chosen word. It isn't so much that I like or love myself. Rather, I'm sentimental about myself. (I say, is this normal for someone my age?) What do I think of Charles Highway? I think: 'Charles Highway? Oh, I like him. Yes, I've got a soft spot for old Charles. He's all right is Charlie. Chuck's ... okay. — Martin Amis

Self Infatuation Quotes By Alice Steinbach

functioned - I realized that first impressions about hotel rooms are like first loves: neither is based on the concept of how, over time, one can come to appreciate the pleasures of durability over infatuation. — Alice Steinbach

Self Infatuation Quotes By Howard Zinn

The Greatest Generation?
They tell me I am a member of the greatest generation. That's because I saw combat duty as a bombardier in World War 11. But I refuse to celebrate "the greatest generation" because in so doing we are celebrating courage and sacrifice in the cause of war. And we are miseducating the young to believe that military heroism is the noblest form of heroism, when it should be remembered only as the tragic accompaniment of horrendous policies driven by power and profit. The current infatuation with World War 11 prepares us
innocently on the part of some, deliberately on the part of others
for more war, more military adventures, more attempts to emulate the military heroes of the past. — Howard Zinn

Self Infatuation Quotes By Sanober Khan

it is to be savored like a

dream...in the mysterious
blue minutes
before dawn

like a secret
infatuation.... like slow
languorous sips

of green tea... like a lingering

a self-wrapped

like his name
upon my lips. — Sanober Khan

Self Infatuation Quotes By Charles L. Whitfield

In the lower self, love is neediness, "chemistry" or infatuation, possession, strong admiration, or even worship - in short, traditional romantic love. Many people who grew up in troubled homes and who experienced a stifling of their Child Within become stuck at these lower levels or ways of experiencing love. — Charles L. Whitfield

Self Infatuation Quotes By Chang-rae Lee

He should have had more faith in himself rather than give in to his weaker qualities, in particular his overeagerness to please and aversion to conflict and a lifelong infatuation with hope, which had him dreaming more than doing — Chang-rae Lee

Self Infatuation Quotes By Archibald MacLeish

To love love and not its meaning, hardens the heart in monstrous ways ... (The Rape Of The Swan)
Footnote : A form of self-edification, infatuation, lust and the epitome of hedonism. — Archibald MacLeish

Self Infatuation Quotes By Jodi Picoult

She smelled like fresh dough rising. — Jodi Picoult

Self Infatuation Quotes By Rachel Bloom

For lack of a better word, I've let love and infatuation emasculate me. — Rachel Bloom

Self Infatuation Quotes By Stephen King

In 1963, before the Beatles burst on the scene, a brief but powerful infatuation with folk music gripped America. The TV show that came along at the right time to capitalize on the craze was Hootenanny, featuring such Caucasian interpreters of the black experience as the Chad Mitchell Trio and the New Christy Minstrels. (Perceived commie Caucasians like Pete Seeger and Joan Baez were not invited to perform.) — Stephen King

Self Infatuation Quotes By Donna Lynn Hope

As long as she is near or within his power to reach, he will be drawn to her, leaving less of him for others and that's why she had to leave. She knew, despite her own great desire, that there are consequences and responsibilities that are more important and life-altering than personal feelings. — Donna Lynn Hope

Self Infatuation Quotes By Ron Koertge

The guys can't take their eyes off Colleen ... one of them ... probably sees her just like I do, she's the gatekeeper to another world. — Ron Koertge

Self Infatuation Quotes By Amy Harmon

I didn't let myself think about my infatuation,because then I would have to
acknowledge it. And I wasn't the kind of
girl to be infatuated or to get caught up in crushes, the kind of girl who checked her lips or fluffed her hair when boys were around. — Amy Harmon

Self Infatuation Quotes By Eric Allin Cornell

After a semester or so, my infatuation with computers burnt out as quickly as it had begun. — Eric Allin Cornell

Self Infatuation Quotes By Jennifer Mardoll

My time with Eli was a sweet sort of agony. It was like the feeling you would get watching a bubble as a child. A thing you can't help but find magical and beautiful yet it must remain elusive. You can't try to get too close. You can't try to touch it lest it pop and be gone forever, but there is nothing you want more than to try. So frustrated you will yourself to hold back and savor it for what it is, a moment of fleeting perfection. — Jennifer Mardoll

Self Infatuation Quotes By Mindy Kaling

The great thing about true best friends is that when you go MIA for a few months, they inquire but they don't press. Best friends know the power of infatuation but also how quickly it dissipates. You just have to wait it out. And then afterward, tease them about it for decades. — Mindy Kaling

Self Infatuation Quotes By Luca Turin

Every child is at some point a small Perseus, and this infatuation with the dark and the lonely is for most people an acute condition, best caught early in life like mumps, and which seldom recurs. — Luca Turin

Self Infatuation Quotes By Chanakya

There is no enemy like infatuation and fire like wrath. — Chanakya

Self Infatuation Quotes By Stefanie Schneider

A secret love is beautiful, sweet and sacred when it's just a light infatuation; but when that person reaches over and touches you in the heart, making it alive in a way it has never known, that secret love becomes frightening, because you can never make them love you, you would never want to make them love you ... but all the same, no matter which way you view it, they don't love you ... and your heart doesn't know how to beat the same. — Stefanie Schneider

Self Infatuation Quotes By Margaret Mahy

Time was too much a part of love, for even in fairytales the proof of love was not its first moment, but its latest ones - that people lived happily ever after. Love at first sight was nothing but infatuation until proved by time ... — Margaret Mahy

Self Infatuation Quotes By Mignon McLaughlin

No one can understand love who has not experienced infatuation. And no one can understand infatuation, no matter how many times he has experienced it. — Mignon McLaughlin

Self Infatuation Quotes By C W Newman

We commonly confuse love with the strong emotions most often associated with it, such as joy, attachment, lust, infatuation, pleasure, pain, fear, and hope, to name a few. But, love is not a feeling; love itself is an action. There are countless emotions and beliefs that can cause us to love. Love is the willing giving of self to another living being. Love is giving the life, time, energy, and resources that we would normally give or use for our self to someone else. Love is an action that enhances the well-being of another living being. — C W Newman

Self Infatuation Quotes By Walt Whitman

I sing the body electric,
The armies of those I love engirth me and I engirth them,
They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them,
And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the soul. — Walt Whitman

Self Infatuation Quotes By Taylor Swift

Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration. — Taylor Swift

Self Infatuation Quotes By Kevin Leman

I believe that love takes time. I believe there is such a thing as infatuation at first sight, but not love at first sight. — Kevin Leman

Self Infatuation Quotes By Larry Wall

Perl doesn't have an infatuation with enforced privacy. It would prefer that you stayed out of its living room because you weren't invited, not because it has a shotgun — Larry Wall

Self Infatuation Quotes By Santonu Kumar Dhar

I don't know if it is love. Why I want to get intimate with you? Why I want to
be committed to you? Why I want to
be attached to you? It feels like
I don't have any control on what's
happening. I don't know if this is
infatuation or love! #LIFE OF LOVE (FILM) — Santonu Kumar Dhar

Self Infatuation Quotes By Colleen Chen

Part of her exulted that he'd asked her, out of everyone in the coach, this question; he must think her intelligent. The rest of her, though, wanted to slap herself for disproving his thought. Here was her opportunity to have her fantasy of a deep philosophical conversation come true with Garth, and all she could say was well, not really. Idiot! — Colleen Chen

Self Infatuation Quotes By Auliq Ice

The joy we feel to be together seems worthy of a fairy tale, from the moment our eyes met we felt the crush of love. This is not a passing infatuation, ours is love of truth. — Auliq Ice

Self Infatuation Quotes By Kristin Cashore

If she was suggesting she was too wise with the weight of her experience to fall prey to infatuation - well, the disproof was sitting before her in the form of a gray-eyed prince with a thoughtful set to his mouth that she found quite distracting. — Kristin Cashore

Self Infatuation Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

The ultimate form is the embodiment of love (Premswaroop)! The love of these (so called) lovers (Romeo-Juliet) does not work there. The Love of God (the Lord) is 'Pure Love'. That which increases or decreases is infatuation [asakti]. There is no increase or decrease in 'Pure Love'. — Dada Bhagwan

Self Infatuation Quotes By Gayle Forman

If you stay, I'll do whatever you want. I'll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I'll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it'd be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I'd do it. I can lose you like that if I don't lose you today. I'll let you go. If you stay. — Gayle Forman

Self Infatuation Quotes By Colleen Chen

He hasn't really seen you, not as you want to be seen, but he's starting to, a little. — Colleen Chen

Self Infatuation Quotes By Mahmoud Darwish

I see a bird carrying me and carrying you, with us as its wings, beyond the dream, to a journey that has no end and no beginning, no purpose and no goal. I do not speak to you, and you do not speak to me; we listen only to the music of silence. Silence is the friend's trust of friend, imagination's self-confidence between rain and rainbow.
A rainbow is inspiration provoking the poet, uninvited, the infatuation of the poet with the prose of the Quran.
Which of your Lord's blessings do you disown?
We are absent, you and I; we are present, you and I.
And absent.
Which of your Lord's blessings do you disown? — Mahmoud Darwish

Self Infatuation Quotes By Sophie Jordan

He stares at me so darkly, so hungily that I can only nod. Agree. Of course, I feel it. "I do", I admit. — Sophie Jordan

Self Infatuation Quotes By Curtis Tyrone Jones

You play me with your jazz & leave me with the blues. — Curtis Tyrone Jones
