Quote from Wallace D. Wattles:
The purpose of life for man is growth, just as the purpose of life for trees and plants is growth. Trees and plants grow automatically and along fixed lines; man can grow as he will. Trees and plants can only develop certain possibilities and characteristics; man can develop any power which is or has been shown by any person anywhere. Nothing that is possible in spirit is impossible in flesh and blood. Nothing that man can think is impossible. Nothing that man can imagine is impossible of realization.
Step aside from all thinking, and there is nowhere you can't go.
Intellect helps us to see the best means and manner of doing the right thing, but intellect never shows us the right thing.
Remember that poise and power are inseparably associated. The calm and balanced mind is the strong and great mind; the hurried and agitated mind is the weak one.
Slow down and remember this: Most things make no difference. Being busy is a form of mental laziness—lazy thinking and indiscriminate action.
People are smarter than you think. Give them a chance to prove themselves.
Greatness is attained only by the thinking of great thoughts.
As the physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training, so the man of weak thoughts can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking.
Roark: "I don't make comparisons. I never think of myself in relation to anyone else. I just refuse to measure myself as part of anything. I'm an utter egotist.
The top players in every field think differently when all the marbles are on the line. Great performers focus on what they are doing, and nothing else…They let it happen, let it go. They couldn’t care less about the results.
It is the act of forgiveness that opens up the only possible way to think creatively about the future at all.
Resolve that you will now lay aside all else and concentrate upon the attainment of conscious unity with God.
