Unless there is a vast alteration in manís civilization as it stumbles along today,man will not be here very long.
I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days
These shadows look so thick to him and weigh him down so that when he finds they are shadows and that he can see through them, walk through them and be again in the sun, he is enormously delighted. And I am afraid I am just as delighted as he is.
Nothing intoxicates some people like a sip of authority
When you can be your own best audience and when your applause is the best applause you know of, youíre in good shape.
The way out is the way through.
There is only one security, and when you've lost that security, you've lost everything you've got. And that is the security of confidence in yourself; to be, to create, to make any position you want to make for yourself. And when you lose that confidence, you've lost the only security you can have. ... Self-confidence is self-determinism. One's belief in one's ability to determine his own course. As long as one has that, he's got the universe in his pocket. And when he hasn't got that, not all the pearls in China nor all the grain and corn in Iowa can give him security, because that's the only security there is.
