Self (See Self-love, Selfishness, etc.)
 
  Of all mankind each loves himself the best.
Terence.

  Born to myself, I like myself alone.
Rochester.

  I to myself am dearer than a friend.
Shakespeare.    
  3
        And though all cry down self, none means
His ownself in a literal sense.
Butler.    
  4
  Do you want to know the man against whom you have most reason to guard yourself? Your looking-glass will give you a very fair likeness of his face.
Whately.    
  5
  We have this principal desire implanted in us by nature, that our first wish is to preserve ourselves.
Yonge.

        Love took up the harp of Life, and smote on all the chords with might;
Smote the chord of Self, that, trembling, pass’d in music out of sight.
Tennyson.

        Explore the dark recesses of the mind,
In the soul’s honest volume read mankind,
And own, in wise and simple, great and small,
The same grand leading principle in all,
*  *  *  and by whatever name we call
The ruling tyrant, self is all in all.
Churchill.
