The Ego

A public statement is nothing without the private effort to back it up. (Eric V. Copage, Black Pearls, 31 July)

Stress always diminishes both the quality and effectiveness of what you do under its influence. There is also a strong link between stress and negative emotions, such as anxiety and anger. (Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, p. 302)

The attitude expressed on any occasion will profoundly affect the dynamics of the situation. (Casey and Vanceburg, The Promise Of A New Day, 8 June)

The ego is a self-justifying historian which seeks only that information that agrees with it, rewrites history when it needs to, and does not even see the evidence that threatens it. (Anthony G. Greenwald in The Promise Of A New Day by Casey and Vanceburg, 22 May)
