Quote from William Shakespeare:
The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.
When you think that someone or something other than yourself needs to change, you’re mentally out of your business.
It is the act of forgiveness that opens up the only possible way to think creatively about the future at all.
Rich people think long-term. They balance their spending on enjoyment today with investing for freedom tomorrow.
Rich honesty dwells like a miser, sir, in a poor house; as your pearl in a foul oyster.
A thought-form held in thinking substance is a reality; it is a real thing, whether it has yet become visible to mortal eye or not.
If you call one thing good, you must call its opposite bad. If you think it wonderful to make a big profit in your business, you will also think it terrible if you incur a large loss. The idea is to live above the opposites.
I was thinking to myself, "If the world were just perfect and you didn't have to ask for anything, if people were just sensitive to all of our needs, that would be much easier."
When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
People are smarter than you think. Give them a chance to prove themselves.
How would you feel if you had no fear? Feel like that. How would you behave toward other people if you realized their powerlessness to hurt you? Behave like that. How would your react to so-called misfortune if you saw its inability to bother you? React like that. How would you think toward yourself if you knew you were really all right? Think like that.
When you're used to getting just a piece of bread for a meal, you don't realize that you can ask for a plate of pasta. You have never seen a plate of pasta. You don't even know it exists. So, to ask for it is totally out of your reality. Hopefully, at some point, either someone shows you a plate of pasta, you read about it, or you hear about it enough so that it becomes real, and it's not just a fantasy anymore, and then you start thinking "Hey, I want that pasta."
