They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application.

Thus talent is a species of vigor.

Every individual is at once the beneficiary and the victim of the linguistic tradition into which he has been born - the beneficiary inasmuch as language gives access to the accumulated records of other people's experience, the victim in so far as it confirms him in the belief that reduced awareness is the only awareness and as it bedevils his sense of reality, so that he is all too apt to take his concepts for data, his words for actual things.

Aldous Huxley

If you can control a manís thinking, you donít have to worry about his actions. If you can determine what a man thinks you do not have worry about what he will do. If you can make a man believe that he is inferior, you donít have to compel him to seek an inferior status, he will do so without being told and if you can make a man believe that he is justly an outcast, you donít have to order him to the back door, he will go to the back door on his own and if there is no back door, the very nature of the man will demand that you build one.

Carter G. Woodson

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Every individual is at once the beneficiary and the victim of the linguistic tradition into which he has been born - the beneficiary inasmuch as language gives access to the accumulated records of other people's experience, the victim in so far as it confirms him in the belief that reduced awareness is the only awareness and as it bedevils his sense of reality, so that he is all too apt to take his concepts for data, his words for actual things.

Ramanand

The awareness that we are all human beings together has become lost in war and through politics
