love yourself quotes wisdom
Here are 80 of the best “love yourself” quotes.

As I was browsing the web the other day, I saw this question:

“Be kind to yourself. If you won’t, who will?”.

And it stuck with me since then.

It’s true…

If I don’t respect myself.

If I don’t love myself.

If I don’t care for myself.

Who will?

The following quotes are the best ones I’ve found in that regard.

And keep in mind:

Loving yourself completely is one of the most important things you can “accomplish” in your life.

So start with that, and then expand your love to others.

You’ll discover quotes by Buddha, Lao Tzu, Maya Angelou, and more.
