„As to love our neighbour as we love ourselves is the great law of Christianity, so it is the great precept of nature to love ourselves only as we love our neighbour, or what comes to the same thing, as our neighbour is capable of loving us.“

—  Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), Part I, Section I, Chap. V.

„The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves“

—  Eric Hoffer American philosopher 1902 - 1983
The Passionate State Of Mind, and Other Aphorisms (1955), Context: The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves. It is not love of self but hatred of self which is at the root of the troubles that afflict our world. Section 100

„What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy if anything can.“

—  Thomas Merton Priest and author 1915 - 1968
Context: Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy if anything can. Letter to Dorothy Day, quoted in Catholic Voices in a World on Fire (2005) by Stephen Hand, p. 180.

„We never love someone. We just love the idea we have of someone. It's a concept of ours - summing up, ourselves - that we love.“

—  Fernando Pessoa, kniha The Book of Disquiet, The Book of Disquiet
The Book of Disquiet, Original: Nunca amamos niguém. Amamos, tão-somente, a ideia que fazemos de alguém. É a um conceito nosso — em suma, é a nós mesmos — que amamos. Ibid., p. 125
