“To learn you need a certain degree
of confidence, not too much and not too little.
If you have too little confidence, you will think you can’t learn.
If you have too much, you will think you don’t have to learn.” -Eric Hoffer
“A person’s right to life means his right to have
the free and unrestricted use of all the things
which may be necessary to his fullest mental,
spiritual and physical unfolding —
in other words, his right to be rich.”
Wallace D. Wattles
“Curious how we acquire wisdom!
Over and over again, the same truth
is thrust under our very noses.
We encounter it in action; we are admonished of it;
we read it in the written word.
We suffer the experience;
we gradually assent to the advice;
we approve, intellectually, the written word.
But nothing happens inside us.
Then, one day, some trivial experience
or word or encounter stops us short.
A gleam of illumination penetrates the
depth of our consciousness.
We see! Usually it is but a glimpse;
but on rare occasions a brilliant flash
reveals truth fully formed.
And we marvel that this understanding
has escaped us so long.”
Stewart Edward White & Harwood White
