Examples of himself in a Sentence

  1. Greville:

    No man was ever so much deceived by another as by himself.

  2. Winston Churchill:

    I'd form a alliance with the devil himself if helped defeat Hitler.

  3. Hunter S. Thompson:

    Gonzo journalism is a style of reporting based on William Faulkner's idea that the best fiction is far more true than any kind of journalism -- and the best journalists have always known this. True gonzo reporting needs the talents of a master journalist, the eye of an artist/photographer and the heavy balls of an actor. Because the writer must be a participant in the scene, while he's writing it -- or at least taping it, or even sketching it. Or all three. Probably the closest analogy to the ideal would be a film director/producer who writes his own scripts, does his own camera work and somehow manages to film himself in action, as the protagonist or at least a main character.

  4. P. Douglas Small:

    When we go to our secret place, God races there ahead of us. Sometimes He doesn't even disclose His presence. Jesus notes, He that sees in secret will reward openly. God hides in our prayer closet and then manifests Himself in the public square. The private moments of surrender translate into public God-moments punctuated with His Presence.

  5. Samuel Johnson:

    Wine makes a man more pleased with himself; I do not say that it makes him more pleasing to others.
