"Nothing is so difficult as not deceiving oneself"

- Ludwig Wittgenstein

About this Quote

This quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein speaks with the trouble of being truthful with oneself. It is simple to trick ourselves, to overlook our own flaws and shortcomings, and to make reasons for our own errors. We can be our own worst enemies, and it can be hard to be honest with ourselves and to accept our own faults. It is much easier to deceive ourselves than to confront our own weak points and accept duty for our actions. This quote is a suggestion that it is very important to be sincere with ourselves and to acknowledge our own mistakes and shortcomings. It is just through self-honesty that we can really grow and become better people.
