Quote Made By The Personality, Whether Famous Or Not. The law is what it is - a majestic edifice, sheltering all of us, each stone of which rests on another. If I have the belief that I can do it, I will surely acquire the ca acity to do it, even if I may not have it in the beginning. !hen dealing with the insane, retend to be sane. "ou thin# that good is hating what is bad. !hat is bad is the hating mind itself. !e secure our friends not by acce ting favors but by doing them. $very form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or mor hine or idealism. If a man hasn%t discovered something that he would die for, he isn%t fit to live. &isfortunes always come in by the door that has been left o en for them. I am free of all rejudice. I hate everyone equally. 'uy mental eace at any cost. (e%er get tensions even if free of cost. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. )orgive that you may be forgiven. Thin#ing. The tal#ing of the soul with itself.

Time is Too slow for those who !ait, Too swift for those - %enry who )ear, Too long for those who 5rieve, Too short for )andyke those who 6ejoice, 'ut for those who +ove Time is not. 5od is the friend of silence. /ee how nature-trees, flowers, grass-grows in silenceD see the stars, the moon - Mother Teresa and the sun, how they move in silence... !e need silence to be able to touch souls. ;o e is a thing with feathers That erches in the soulD -nd sings the tune without words -nd never sto s at all. It is my conviction that it is the intuitive, s iritual as ects of us humans-the inner voice-that gives us the <#nowing,% the eace, and the direction to go through the windstorms of life, not shattered but whole, joining in love and understanding. It is better to be a lion for a day than a shee all your life. (ature is an unlimited broadcasting station, through which 5od s ea#s to us every hour, if we only will tune in. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. The soul is not where it lives but where it loves. +ove is doing small things with great love. .onscience is 5od%s resence in man. +ove is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go, and it ma#es the end so easy. >ictory goes to the layer who ma#es the ne7t-to-last mista#e. I do not feel obliged to believe that the same 5od who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

There is no such thing as instant im rovement in life. -nd as you #now in agriculture, growth can only ha en little by little over time=. The things that you do daily may seem small and insignificant, but over time eo le will be sur rised to learn how much you have grown in -'onald life. Latumahina. )ocus on the small things you do daily. The #ey word here is daily. If you don%t have the ersistence to do these small things consistently, you won%t be able to see the results over the long term. In three words I can sum u everything I%ve learned about life, it goes on. $very moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. 0ust ut forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you. ;ow much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it. The ast must no longer be used as an anvil for beating out the resent and the future. /mall o ortunities are often the beginning of great enter rises. !e must be willing to let go of the life we have lanned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. (o man or woman of the humblest sort can really be strong, gentle and good without the world being better for it, without somebody being hel ed and comforted by the very e7istence of that goodness. !hatever in society is good and great and sublime is the wor#ing out of love. !hatever in society is very bad F nay diabolical Fis also ill-directed, wor#ing out of the same emotion of love. It is this same emotion that gives us the ure and holy conjugal love as well as the sort of love which goes to satisfy the lowest forms of assion. It is the same feeling of love well or ill-directed that im els one man to do good and to give all he has to the oor, while it ma#es another man cut the throats of his brethren and ta#e away all their ossessions. The former loves others as much as the later loves himself. AG -(o"ert $rost.
