God always takes the simplest way.

We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
Grace is the absence of everything that indicates pain or difficulty, hesitation or incongruity.
If men as individuals surrender to the call of their elementary instincts, avoiding pain and seeking satisfaction only for their own selves, the result for them all taken together must be a state of insecurity, of fear, and of promiscuous misery.
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism have brought me to my ideas.
Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.
To know is nothing at all; to imagine is everything.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.
When the solution is simple, God is answering.
It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.
Whatever the universal nature assigns to any man at any time is for the good of that man at that time.
Grant graciously what you cannot refuse safely and conciliate those you cannot conquer.
The best men are not those who have waited for chances but who have taken them; besieged the chance; conquered the chance; and made chance the servitor.
Prayer should be short, without giving God Almighty reasons why he should grant this, or that; he knows best what is good for us.
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Opportunities are often missed because we are broadcasting when we should be listening.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated.
Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.
Man has three friends on whose company he relies. First, wealth which goes with him only while good fortune lasts. Second, his relatives; they go only as far as the grave, leave him there. The third friend, his good deeds, go with him beyond the grave.
Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.
Flow with whatever is happening and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
The flower of kindness will grow. Maybe not now, but it will some day. And in kind that kindness will flow, For kindness grows in this way.
People with goals succeed because they know where they're going.
I'm a very intense person. When I go after something, I want to go after it with everything I have. I want to push myself to the edge.
If someone takes your coat, give him your cloak as well; if he makes you go a mile with him, go with him two. [Mathew]
The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true -- action precedes motivation. You have to prime the pump and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day.
All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.
You must intensify and render continuous by repeatedly presenting with suggestive ideas and mental pictures of the feast of good things, and the flowing fountain, which awaits the successful achievement or attainment of the desires.
Our greatest lack is not money for any undertaking, but rather ideas, If the ideas are good, cash will somehow flow to where it is needed.
Someone who thinks the world is always cheating him is right. He is missing that wonderful feeling of trust in someone or something.
How do you go from where you are to where you want to be? I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal, and you have to be willing to work for it.
The noblest spirit is most strongly attracted by the love of glory.
Everything you want in life has a price connected to it. There's a price to pay if you want to make things better, a price to pay just for leaving things as they are, a price for everything.
A price has to be paid for success. Almost invariably those who have reached the summits worked harder and longer, studied and planned more assiduously, practiced more self-denial, overcame more difficulties than those of us who have not risen so far.
Nature cannot be tricked or cheated. She will give up to you the object of your struggles only after you have paid her price.
Before the reward there must be labor. You plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you reap joy.
When truth is discovered by someone else, it loses something of its attractiveness.
He is greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
Desperation is like stealing from the Mafia: you stand a good chance of attracting the wrong attention.
The Law of Attraction attracts to you everything you need, according to the nature of your thought life. Your environment and financial condition are the perfect reflection of your habitual thinking. Thought rules the world.
Every friend is to the other a sun, and a sunflower also. He attracts and follows.
Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.
There is safety in reserve, but no attraction. One cannot love a reserved person.
Money is usually attracted, not pursued.
Faults are beauties in a lovers eye.
Acceptance of others, their looks, their behaviors, their beliefs, bring you an inner peace and tranquillity -- instead of anger and resentment
The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.
Always fall in with what you're asked to accept. Take what is given, and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with whatever's going. Not against: with.
Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events.
One must not attempt to justify them, but rather to sense their nature simply and clearly.
Some books are undeservedly forgotten; none are undeservedly remembered.
Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten.
Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost time is gone forever.
It's what you do, unthinking, that makes the quick tear start; The tear may be forgotten -- but the hurt stays in the heart.
Lovers who love truly do not write down their happiness.
Scratch a lover, and find a foe.
Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.
The more credit you give away, the more will come back to you. The more you help others, the more they will want to help you.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
The gift of friendship... a willingness to listen... a pair of helping hands... a whisper from the heart. That someone cares and understands.
Seek the friend who's hand helped you and tell them what they mean to you.
Solitude cherishes great virtues and destroys little ones.
Cherish your human connections: your relationships with friends and family.
For purposes of action nothing is more useful than narrowness of thought combined with energy of will.
Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.
Nothing is enough for the man to whom enough is too little.
The trusts and combinationsthe communism of pelfwhose machinations have prevented us from reaching the success we deserved, should not be forgotten nor forgiven.
