Self pity

p class=”quote-text3″> Self-pity is the cause of all life’s grievances.

Self-pity is the worst poverty; it overwhelms man until he sees nothing but illness, trouble, and pain.

Self-pity is the worst poverty. When a person says, "I am to be pitied," before he says anything more he has diminished himself by half; and what is said further diminishes him totally.

Worry comes from self-pity. When the self is forgotten, there is no worry. Worry comes also from fear, and fear comes from the clouds of ignorance. Light breaks the clouds.

Self-pity is the worst poverty; it overwhelms man until he sees nothing but illness, trouble, and pain.
