Sometimes all you’ve accomplished by the end of the day is to have maneuvered your body through space without grave incident.” ~ Hilary Thayer Hamann , Feeling self conscious quotes

We simply had no idea what it was like being an extremely large lizard, and neither for that matter did the lizard, because it was not self-conscious about being an extremely large lizard, it just got on with the business of being one. To react with revulsion to its behavior was to make the mistake of applying criteria that are only appropriate to the business of being human.” ~ Douglas Adams
  56. “When I moved to London in the 1990s, it had changed a great deal. Racism had become deeply uncool.

  57. “When writers are self-conscious about themselves as writers they often keep a great distance from their characters, sounding as if they were writing encyclopedia entries instead of stories.

Readers feel so close to the characters that, for those magical moments, they become those characters.” ~ Jerome Stern

  60. “Show me a novelist – or, indeed, a reader – who wasn’t a socially awkward, self-conscious adolescent, prone to clumsiness and excessive reading and I’ll… well, I’ll probably bang my shoulder on the door frame as I storm out.
