The people wish to be deceived; let them be deceived.
Hell is other people.
We have a war dictator who was not elected, he snuck in. so he punishes people that threaten him in any way, or even say something he doesn't like. It has no resemblance to democracy.
Every one of the world's dictatorships can and does claim to be acting in the name of the people.
I know now that most people are so closely concerned with themselves that they are not aware of their own individuality. I can see myself, and it has helped me to say what I want to say in paint.
People are changed, not by coercion or intimidation, but by example.
For some reason, people had their hopes much higher than this, especially for the guidance. Everything seems to be in line.
Nature abhors a vacuum but why do most people hasten to fill in the blanks with garbage?
There is also the very real possibility that, in the justice of God, one of the reasons He uses the weak and the foolish of the world is so that no argument could be made later that certain people were advantaged in some unfair way by that which was unearned-either in the premortal life or here. Hence it seems prudent for us to realize that just because one is set apart or ordained to a certain calling or assignment he or she must not expect to be set apart from the stresses of life. There appear to be no immunities.
The growth of drug-related crime is a far greater evil to society as a whole than drug taking. Even so, because we have been seduced by the idea that governments should legislate for our own good, very few people can see how dangerously absurd the present policy is.
It would be hard to blame you for having trouble taking much of what is said in Washington seriously. You heard about the Medicare actuary who was forced to fudge the numbers and lie to Congress to keep his job. You heard the falsified numbers in Iraq on everything from the cost of the war to the number of trained Iraqi troops to a slam dunk case for weapons of mass destruction. You heard about the administration sponsored fake newscasts to mislead people all across America.
Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
Moderation has been called a virtue to limit the ambition of great men, and to console undistinguished people for their want of fortune and their lack of merit.
The universal Law of Attraction states that we draw to us those people, events, and circumstances that match our inner state of being. In other words, we attract experiences that are consistent with our beliefs. If we believe that there is plenty of love in the world and we are worthy of giving and receiving that love, we will attract a different quality of relationships than someone who believes in scarcity or feels unworthy of happiness. If we believe the world is a loving and friendly place, then most of the time that will be our experience. If we believe the world is a chaotic, stressful, and fearful place, then eventually that will become our reality. So, believing and knowing that your soulmate is out there is a critical first step in the formula for manifesting him or her into your life.
America is a model of force and freedom and moderation -- with all the coarseness and rudeness of its people.
War alone can carry to the maximum tension all human energies and imprint with the seal of nobility those people who have the courage to confront it; every other test is a mere substitute.
People are learning to feel more comfortable hearing one another's dreams. It used to be that if you told a dream in public, someone had to make a joke to relieve the tension introduced by that alternative reality.
The fact that you have two people both wanting to do the same thing provides the tension in the show. The understanding of the reasons that each one wants to get in there first provides the resolution to the show. It's an emotional rollercoaster ride.
It is difficult, if not impossible, for most people to think otherwise than in the fashion of their own period.
Many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.
The growing tip is a small proportion of mankind. They will carry on. As a matter of fact, that is what is happening with the whole humanistic synthesis now; the groundbreaking is done by a few people, and most of the stuff is just routine or mediocr
Mentally define what you are trying to achieve with the people you are interacting with on a daily basis and then develop a routine that allows you to maximize useful contact and minimize unnecessary contact.

To understand spiritual intention and insight is the knowledge of the rock people. Within each of us is the story of yesterday.
The word power has such a generally negative implication in our society. What are people talking about? Are they talking about muscles, or control?
