To forget oneself

In my post Language use and mental health of two days ago it was mentioned that people whose health was improving tend to decrease their use of first-person pronouns in their writings. Thinking about this, I remembered a quote by Robert L. Stevenson, author of Treasure Island:

"In every part and corner of our life, to lose oneself is to be a gainer, to forget oneself is to be happy".
