Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck. Nobel Laureate in Physics (1931)
"When you love yourself, the natural result is overflowing love for all the people you encounter. If you do not love and accept others around you (as they are, whatever they do), this is sure sign that there is more work to do to love yourself."
