Five of the best book quotes about detached
  1. #1
    “You must practice seeing yourself with a little distance, cultivating the ability to get out of your own head. Detachment is a sort of natural ego antidote.

What is rare is not raw talent, skill, or even confidence, but humility, diligence, and self-awareness.”

    ″ ... there was his house, small but detached. It had been the one thing his mum had insisted on in the divorce […] after his dad had left for America with Stephanie, the new wife.

  5. #5
    “Humbleness, truthfulness, and harmlessness,
    Patience and honour, reverence for the wise.
    Purity, constancy, control of self,
    Contempt of sense-delights, self-sacrifice,
    Perception of the certitude of ill
    In birth, death, age, disease, suffering, and sin;
    Detachment, lightly holding unto home,
    Children, and wife, and all that bindeth men;
    An ever-tranquil heart in fortunes good
    And fortunes evil, with a will set firm
    To worship Me--Me only! ceasing not;
    Loving all solitudes, and shunning noise
    Of foolish crowds; endeavours resolute
    To reach perception of the Utmost Soul,
    And grace to understand what gain it were
    So to attain,--this is true Wisdom, Prince.”
