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.”
