When given the choice between being right or kind, choose being kind. Wayne Dyer
I love Wayne Dyer. I think I have read everything he has ever written and have seen him live a couple of times. His version of the Tao, Change your Mind, Change your Life, was one of my favorite books. He passed away in 2015, but his messages still pop up here and there. If you are looking for something that is simple, true and uplifting, I'd recommend his work.
One of his focuses is how one deals with their ego. Ego can be the downfall of anyone. People begin to think they are above others, the law and reality.
Here is a great video for sweet dreams.
