Your ability to use the principle of auto-suggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to CONCENTRATE upon a given DESIRE until that desire becomes a BURNING OBSESSION.
If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own backyard; because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.
Every person has the power to change their fate if they are brave enough to fight for what they desire more than anything.
Almost all our desires, when closely examined, contain what we dare not avow.[Presque toutes nos convoitises, examinées, contiennent de l’inavouable.]
Ah, God! what trances of torments does that man endure who is consumed with one unachieved revengeful desire. He sleeps with clenched hands; and wakes with his own bloody nails in his palms.
You see, I want a lot. Maybe I want it all: the darkness of each endless fall, the shimmering light of each ascent.[Du siehst, ich will viel. Vielleicht will ich Alles: das Dunkel jedes unendlichen Falles und jedes Steigens lichtzitterndes Spiel.]
We do not succeed in changing things in accordance with our desires, but gradually our desires change.[Nous n’arrivons pas à changer les choses selon notre désir, mais peu à peu notre désir change.]
To call a desire into being, to nourish it, to develop it, to bring it to full growth, to excite it, to satisfy it, is a complete poem of itself.[Faire naître un désir, le nourrir, le développer, le grandir, l’irriter, le satisfaire, c’est un poème tout entier.]
