The true optimist not only expects the best to happen, but goes to work to make the best happen. The true optimist not only looks upon the bright side, but trains every force that is in him to produce more and more brightness in his life...
Chapter 6, p. 97
When you think that you are beautiful, you are liable to think that you are more beautiful than others, and such a thought is not a beautiful thought. To recognize or criticise ugliness and inferiority in others is to create the inferior and the ugly in yourself, and what you create in yourself will sooner or later be expressed through your mind and personality.Christian D. Larson
We are here to become great men and women, and with that purpose in view, we must eliminate everything in our religion and philosophy that tends to make the human mind a dependent weakling. If you would serve God and be truly religious, do not kneel before God, but learn to walk with God, and do something tangible every day to increase the happiness of mankind. This is religion that is worth while, and it is such religion alone that can please the Infinite.Christian D. Larson
The true purpose of the strong is to promote greater strength in the weak, and not to keep the weak in that state where they are at the mercy of the strong.Christian D. Larson
It is better to have faith in everybody and be deceived occasionally than to mistrust everybody and be deceived almost constantly.Christian D. Larson
The master mind is the mind that thinks what it wants to think, regardless of what circumstances, environment or associations may suggest.Christian D. Larson
Life becomes the way it is lived; and man may live the way he wants to live when he learns to think what he wants to think.Christian D. Larson
