What is this self inside us, this silent observer, Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us, And urge us on to futile activity, And in the end, judge us still more severely, For the errors into which his own reproaches drove us?
- T. S. Eliot

Self-acceptance is my refusal to be in an adversarial relationship to myself.
- Nathaniel Branden
