    myself

    "I like quickness myself."

    Here the "myself" could be omitted of course - what's the difference between these two sentences (1. with "myself" used 2. without "myself") ?

    Thanks

    It would help if you post a complete sentence.

    Re: myself

    It emphasizes that it's your personal opinion and it may not be in alignment with the opinions of others.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: myself

    It's usually used to show an opinion in contrast to someone else's (or various other people's).

    My best friend likes classical music. Many of my other friends like jazz. I like opera myself.

    Re: myself

    That's the whole sentence.

    Thank you.
