A man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world.
The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
— Eden Phillpotts
I think that wherever your journey takes you, there are new gods waiting there, with divine patience — and laughter.
— Susan M. Watkins
Blessed is the person who is too busy to worry in the daytime and too sleepy to worry at night.
— Leo Aikman
The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the dower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms–this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.
— Albert Einstein
If you can control a man’s thinking, you do not have to worry about his action. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it for himself. If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.
— Carter G. Woodson
Fear is more fatal than hate.
— Canon P. A. Sheehan
Thinking is the talking of the soul with itself.
Short is the road that leads from fear to hate.
— Italian Proverb
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
— Pamela Vaull Starr
I believe . . . that living on the edge, living in and through your fear, is the summit of life, and that people who refuse to take that dare condemn themselves to a life of living death.
— John H. Johnson
I learned . . . that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.
— Brenda Ueland
I am always with all beings; I abandon no one. And however great your inner darkness, you are never separate from me.
Let your thoughts flow past you, calmly; keep me near, at every moment; trust me with your life, because I am you, more than you yourself are.
— Bhagavad Gita
