20 Confidence Quotes to Help you Believe in Yourself

If we should define self-confidence in a few words, we can refer to it as the ability to trust oneself and one’s capabilities of reaching a goal. It means feeling good about who you are despite external circumstances.

While some people seem to naturally have it, many of us only dream of becoming confident one day. However, confidence is tricky. A lack of it affects our emotional and mental well-being – it might transform us into pessimists, we’ll have trouble dealing with failure, we’ll experience social anxiety and automatically be more stressed.

On the other hand, there seems to be a fine line between confidence and arrogance, as many of us confuse the two. Arrogance is actually false confidence and it’s usually destructive. There’s nothing wrong with trusting your capabilities; it’s one of the ingredients for success. The problem is creating the impression of being confident – this will only …

25 Umberto Eco Quotes to Inspire You to Write Your Own Story

Umberto Eco (5 January 1932 – 19 February 2016) was one of the finest novelists of the 20th century, as well as a renowned university professor, philosopher, semanticist, and literary critic.

The Name of the Rose (Il nome della rosa) is the masterpiece that brought him worldwide fame. The story was brought to screens in 1986, starring Sean Connery. I remember my grandmother giving me this book, and how different and complex it felt compared to everything else that I had read as a child. Umberto Eco’s blend of mystery, medieval ways, religion and semiotics blew my mind. Foucault’s Pendulum and The Prague Cemetery must also be mentioned here, as the last one took its sweet time at the top of the bestseller charts in Italy back in 2010.

Eco was passionate about reading ever since he was a kid; he used to devour everything from classic novels to …

15 John Locke Quotes to Help you Think Without Prejudice

John Locke was an English philosopher and physician, widely known as the founder of empiricism and the “Father of Liberalism.”

Locke’s philosophy inspired both the European Enlightenment and the Constitution of the United States. His political philosophy was grounded in the importance of toleration between individuals and in the notion of the social contract, concerning the legitimacy of the authority of the state over the individual.

Locke’s theories inspired later philosophers such as Voltaire, Jean Jacques Rousseau, David Hume and Immanuel Kant. By defining the self through a continuity of consciousness, Locke suggested that all of our ideas and knowledge are determined only by experience (empiricism) and that individuals are born without built-in mental content.

As a physician, Locke had become a fellow of the Royal Society and along with Thomas Sydenham, conducted important research based on careful observation and firm evidence.

Here are 15 John Locke quotes to help …
