Who am I quotes

“     Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline. I love my freedom of speech and the way my eyes get dark when I’m tired. I love that I have learned to trust people with my heart, even if it will get broken. I am proud of everything that I am and will become. Johnny Weir


“ “Ever felt tired? Like existentially tired? Where you lose the sense of identity, structures, language, reason, being and time. Where you can’t see a destination and you can’t find a return, where even when you return its not a return to yourself rather it is a turn to a realisation that you have lost yourself somewhere between ‘the you’ and ‘the self’ and this dichotomy of what you call ‘you’ cannot make you feel home anymore. You run and you keep running, not towards anything but away from everything; from people, from rules, from gods, from words, from love and from being you, for forever. So do you ever feel tired?”

― Huseyn Raza        “


Don’t judge me, you can’t handle half of what I’ve dealt with. There’s a reason I do the things I do, there’s a reason I am who I am.     

Varsha Sharma      “

“        I’m tired of defending my character. I am what I am. What you see is what you get. – Dana Plato          “

Who am I quotes

“   I felt this during the first few months of my motherhood. You lose who you are – you lose your identity – because when your baby comes, you give, give, give, and no one gives back, and you just wonder, ‘Who am I?’ ‘What am I?’ ‘How do I live life now?’ It’s all for this baby. Brie Bella


“  While walking, for example, if we are talking or thinking at the same time, we get caught up in the conversation or thoughts we’re having and get lost in the past or the future, our worries or our projects. People can easily spend their entire lives doing just that. What a tragic waste! Let us instead really live these moments that are given to us. In order to be able to live our life, we have to stop that radio inside, turn off our internal discourse.

How can we enjoy our steps if our attention is given over to all that mental chatter? It’s important to become aware of what we feel, not just what we think. When we touch the ground with our foot, we should be able to feel our foot making contact with the ground. When we do this, we can feel a lot of joy in just being able to walk. When we walk, we can invest all our body and mind into our steps and be fully concentrated in each precious moment of life.

In focusing on that contact with the earth, we stop being dragged around by our thoughts and begin to experience our body and our environment in a wholly different way. Our body is a wonder! Its functioning is the result of millions of processes. We can fully appreciate this only if we stop our constant thinking and

have enough mindfulness and concentration to be in touch with the wonders of our body, the Earth, and the sky.

― Thich Nhat Hanh, Silence: The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise       “

“I am not Seamus, who tacks emotions to the outside of his skin and whose words charge from his mouth on horseback. No one sees through me, except Xavier, and he does so not because I choose to give him access but because he knows himself. I will have to offer myself to Seamus, if I want something ‘more’ with him. Part of me can’t believe I’d contemplate it, even for a moment. What do I have in common with an oversized, yarn-spinning, bread-mauling, divorced deliveryman attached to a seven-year-old? The rest of me doesn’t know if I remember how to be close to another person. I practice mimicry, a Viceroy butterfly masquerading as a Monarch, a Superb Lyrebird echoing the calls of everything from chickadees to chain saws. I practice stories of my past, telling this sad memory or that scary one, and people feel I’m confiding in them because the words touch their deepest wounds, not because the tales hold any emotional resonance for me. My intimacies, the ones that have become my Sisyphus stones, long-term romantic relationships, the college one, ended with the nice young man shocked when I said I didn’t love him and we had nothing in common. “We’ve spent two years talking about everything,” he said.

Yes, mimicry.

― Christa Parrish, Stones for Bread         “

“          Who are we without our addictions; without our media-induced hungers? So often the voices we hear echoing in our mind are not our own but that of our influencers. Isolation, while arguably going against human nature, is essential for mental and emotional health. Solitude is a detoxification of all that distorts our personality and misguides our path in life. It allows us to filter out the foreign opinions and hear our own voice—reach our authentic character—and practice fidelity to self.

― L.M. Browning, Seasons of Contemplation: A Book of Midnight Meditations        “

Who am I quotes

“   that was the one distinct time in my life, the strangest moment of all, when I didn’t know who I was—I was far away from home, haunted and tired with travel, in a cheap hotel room I’d never seen, hearing the hiss of steam outside, and the creak of the old wood of the hotel, and footsteps upstairs, and all the sad sounds, and I looked at the cracked high ceiling and really didn’t know who I was for about fifteen strange seconds. I wasn’t scared; I was just somebody else, some stranger, and my whole life was a haunted life, the life of a ghost. I was halfway across America, at the dividing line between the East of my youth and the West of my future, and maybe that’s why it happened right there and then, that strange red afternoon.

― Jack Kerouac     “

“    I am a teacher. It’s how I define myself. A good teacher isn’t someone who gives the answers out to their kids but is understanding of needs and challenges and gives tools to help other people succeed. That’s the way I see myself, so whatever it is that I will do eventually after politics, it’ll have to do a lot with teaching. Justin Trudeau


“     People talk about physical fitness, but mental health is equally important. I see people suffering, and their families feel a sense of shame about it, which doesn’t help. One needs support and understanding. I am now working on an initiative to create awareness about anxiety and depression and help people. Deepika Padukone

“       It is not possible to know ‘Who am I?’ by ‘doing’. ‘Doing’ (anything), requires egoism, and where there is egoism, ‘Who am I’ cannot be known.”

― Dada Bhagwan           “

Who am I quotes

“    Because for whatever reason, even though I want to stay home all the time and be left alone, I want to tell the world who I am now.

Fiona Apple    “

“    I’m not interested in trying to work on people’s perceptions. I am who I am, and if you don’t take the time to learn about that, then your perception is going to be your problem.

Jim Brown     “

“    This is me. Don’t judge, don’t hate. I am who I am, I’m who God made me too be, an angel with a few scars and broken hearts and a voice that should be heard. I’m a solider and a fighter, I fight for love and I fight for those who need an angel too.

Courtney Hood         “

“        Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It’s the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, ‘This is me, and I’m interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.’ Ashton Kutcher


Who am I quotes

“    I spent days and nights staring at the blank page, searching the deepest corners of my mind: who have I been, what have I seen, what did I learn? I thought about all the nights I’ve spent outside, all the times I laid down to cry and how I took a deep breath every morning and decided to simply go on. Because what else is there to do? Decide that this is it?

I quit, I’m done?

Oh if I could find words to justify those feelings I’ve carried. I could write the thickest of books with explosions of emotions from a young girl’s lost heart. I could make you see, make you hear, make you feel, at least a tiny fragment

of what’s out there.”

― Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps    “

“    I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

Nicholas Sparks     “

“      I am what I am. I love me! And I don’t mean that egotistically – I love that God has allowed me to take whatever it was that I had and to make something out of it. – Stevie Wonder       “

“        Who I am, what I am, is the culmination of a lifetime of reading, a lifetime of stories. And there are still so many more books to read. I’m a work in progress. – Sarah Addison Allen          “

Who am I quotes

“    The purpose of a pilgrimage is about setting aside a long period of time in which the only focus is to be the matters of the soul. Many believe a pilgrimage is about going away but it isn’t; it is about coming home. Those who choose to go on pilgrimage have already ventured away from themselves; and now set out in a longing to journey back to who they are.

Many a time we believe we must go away from all that is familiar if we are to focus on our inner well-being because we feel it is the only way to escape all that drains and distracts us, allowing us to turn inward and tend to what ails us. Yet we do not need to go to the edges of the earth to learn who we are, only the edges of ourself.”

― L.M. Browning, Seasons of Contemplation: A Book of Midnight Meditations    “

“  WHO AM I?

I have seven heavenly panels

Leading up to a pointed sphere

I’m multidimensional like a crystal

And my center is never clear.

I’m an inventor and pioneer.

A mentor to my peers.

But I’m not as sound as my shell reveals,

Because I’m tormented by my fears –

That may appear to be grounded

But my insides are filled with tears.

And the sadness is well-founded,

From years and years

Of traumatic experiences


In the most demented


I talk but feel like nobody hears.

Has reason disappeared?

And, God, are you near?

This is Giza’s 7th light force

And I’m asking you to interfere.

I can no longer walk amongst the blind and dead

With open eyes and ears.

I’m trying to maintain my sanity

And to straighten up my veneer

As I roll amongst the growing calamities

Flowing on Earth’s severely trashed


Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun (2010)       “

“     Things can be really empty in this world, and I don’t just mean the music world. It can become a very meaningless place if you don’t really understand: ‘who am I? Why am I here? What am I doing?’ To feel fulfilment and have a deeper level of understanding, personally, that is the most important thing. Alicia Keys


“          I have learned that, although I am a good teacher, I am a much better student, and I was blessed to learn valuable lessons from my students on a daily basis. They taught me the importance of teaching to a student – and not to a test. Erin Gruwell

Who am I quotes

“Who is doing this? Who am I? What is all this? Who is the doer? Who is the nimit (instrumental doer) of this? If all these remain present ‘at a time’ exactly the way it is, then that is considered shuddha upayog (pure focused applied awareness of the Self, the Soul).”

― Dada Bhagwan

“      My philosophy is it’s none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am, and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

Anthony Hopkins   “

“       I most certainly believe that it is the gift of God that I am what I am. And so I dwell amongst barbarians, a proselyte and an exile, for the love of God. – Saint Patrick      “

“        “From time to time, we all must go unto a landscape—be it inner or outer landscape—where there are no hiding places. Allowing the stark awe and silence to aid us in both communing and confronting the depth of ourselves.

We fear emptiness because we know that within those places of nothingness we will come face-to-face with who we are and gaze into the internal mirror. But what is the alternative? Shall we go our entire life without hearing our own voice . . . without ever having met who we are when isolated from all?”

― L.M. Browning, Seasons of Contemplation: A Book of Midnight Meditations          “
