It was hard to answer with a specific event or date, but now that I look back, I do remember being very influenced by a little book of quotes. This little book was one of my first introductions to some great thinkers of the world — Thoreau, Gandhi, Jung, Goethe, and many others. These are some special quotes that focus on the challenge and satisfaction of digging deep into your own mind, the trials and tribulations of getting to know yourself.

Many of our greatest thinkers wrote about the importance of understanding ourselves and living authentically. Well-intentioned parents sometimes try to mold us into who they want us to be, rather than who we really are. Some of us become people-pleasers and some become stoic and cut off from our feelings and inner experiences. Be honest and transparent anyway. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen. All rights reserved.
Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. Trust your gut. Never be afraid of failure. Only you know yourself best.

If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. I never regret anything. Because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end. Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
