350/365 – Who lies to himself ( Fyodor Dostoyevsky)

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself.
The man who lies to himself
and listens to his own lie
comes to a point
 that he cannot distinguish
the truth within him,
or around him,
and so loses all respect for himsel
f and for others.
And having no respect
he ceases to love.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky
