The life which men praise and regard as successful is but one kind. Why should we exaggerate any one kind at the expense of the others?
I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness and cynicism by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me because I will believe in them and in myself.
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
What is success? It is an inner, an indescribable force, resourcefulness, power of vision; a consciousness that I am, by my mere existence, exerting pressure on the movement of life about me.
What do we look for in a lord? Strength, generosity, hardness, and success, and why should a man not be proud of those things?
Until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others, you will be neither successful nor happy.
